What are the yummiest health snacks you've found 4 your kids???

I'm looking for snacks that are 'kid-tested and mother-approved' for my son. He's growing so fast, but I'm not fixin' to feed him anything close to fast food. What treasures have U found that your kids LOVE to eat?

  • rice, pasta salad, fresh fruit, applesauce. I have a very picky eater. But you could try sweet potato french fries, hummus w/ veggies or pita bread, dry cereal, Kashi cereal bars.

  • DS loves the "Just Veggies" they sell at the health food store. (just dried veggies.) I also give him the whole grain breton crackers with Rbst free cheese (Tillamook) all the time.
    -Applesauce (motts, natural...)
    -apples with peanut butter, apples with cheese, just plain apples.
    -Annies organic bunny crackers (their version of goldfish crackers)
    -avacado slices
    -cantelope, watermelon, honey dew
    -buy a homemade popsicle maker and fill is with V8 fusion (NOT SPLASH...splash is only 10% juice) or any other 100% juice
    -frozen yogurt, berries, etc....

  • Any berry, fresh or frozen, would be number 1
    Sushi is number 2
    Hummus with baby carrots and zucchini sticks
    Broccoli with peanut sauce or melted cheese
    Smoothies: frozen blueberries, fresh kale (lots of iron and calcium) frozen banana (masks the taste of the kale), orange juice (vitamin C to increase the absorbtion of the iron) and fortified ricemilk.
    Apple slices with peanutbutter
    Yogurt with frozen blueberries and cereal
