I think the Mi-Del cookies are the closest substitute, but as Linda said, they're not teething biscuits.

In my opinion, teething biscuits are a choking hazard anyway, so it is no loss if you can't find a gluten-free substitute. After being gummed for a while, usually a big piece will break off in baby's mouth, and it can cause choking.

The second time I gave one to my older daughter she choked on it: eyes bugged out, turning purple, every parent's nightmare. I was lunging for the scissors to cut the straps of her high chair when she finally coughed it up. And I know our experience is far from unusual. My husband now refers to them as choking biscuits.

My 10 YEAR old daughter loves Baby Mum Mum. They are by HotKids and are rice rusks. The company now offers organic Baby Mum Mums.

They are: gluten free, egg free, nut free, not artificial colors or flavours, no preservatives, and cholesterol free. Basically taste free, but my kid loves them.

They come individually wrapped so are great for lunch snacks. My 10 year old has no issues with the good-natured teasing from her friends.

The company now offers Toddler Mum Mums (which my non-celiac kid prefers), but my celiac kid prefers Baby Mum Mums. I get them at Walmart/Safeway/organic food stores in Canada but am presuming you can get them in the States.

As per previous posts, rusks and teething biscuits can be choking hazards. My kids never had any such biscuits until they were over 2.
