Any ideas for super healthy easy snacks for 2 year old toddler.

Snacks with low cholesterol and no fructose corn syrup are preferred. My child does not eat peanut butter at this point. Any suggestions. Thanks

  • Oh that is easy. Any whole foods :-) Fresh fruits and veggies, as well as baked meats (with little to no salt)

  • lowfat cheese, cottage cheese, raisins, dried or raw fruit, turkey slices, oatmeal, mashed sweet potato, whole grain crackers, veggie bites--in the frozen isle, 100% all white meat baked chicken nuggets--and honestly a little chocolate is good for your heart, so maybe 20 or so chocolate chips? Also bananna bread made with applesauce!

  • My son loves sharing a few apples with me, or chunks or orange (or even freshly squeeze homemade juice). He also loves eating bananas. He also enjoys walking around chomping on celery sticks or cucumber and currently has a huge thing for carrots.

    I try to give him soem avocado for fat as well but thats a little more messy.

  • Crackers and cream cheese; toast with sunflowerseed butter (like peanut butter but not); any veggies with hummus to dip; graham crackers; apple slices; grapefruit (my daughter is obsessed -- I cut out the segments and she digs them out and then we squeeze out the juice -- the only juice she ever gets!!)

  • Peanut butter is very healthy at that age, and is ok to give them if you are worried about allergies. I suggest ants on a log as well. Carrots celery with a ranch dip, Trail mix, yogurt with granola, fruit drizzled with a little honey, cheese and crackers.

  • my kids like carrot sticks and ranch dip (i get the low fat one). i find the baby carrots are too hard for them to eat easily so i cut the bigger ones in quarters and the skinnier ones in half. mandarin oranges (not the ones in syrup lol), pineapple packed in juice, bananna is always a fav. but his #1 favorite is gnawing on an apple lol
