The Crunchy Scale: oatmeal with a bit of crunch?

Some of my friends and family think I'm a little "weird" for some of the parenting choices I make and call me "crunchy", but then again I also have some friends who really consider themselves "crunchy" who say I am "oatmeal".  I never really considered what label I was until recently - when I started joining groups on facebook and meetup with similar parenting ideas.  It was then that I realized that I didn't quite fit any of the labels.  Actually, I think few people fit perfectly into a label -- we all pick and choose what works for us, our baby, and our family.

So where am I on the crunchy scale?  I've decided to do a series of posts on where I am on the "crunchy scale" and maybe this question will be answered...or maybe not.

So here is the "crunchy" scale:

granola = super crunchy, all natural

oatmeal = partially processed, mostly natural

instant oatmeal = processed but nature is still there

sugar puffs = who needs natural?
