Snack ideas for an 18 month old

What are some things you feed your toddler for a snack? I'm running out of ideas. Some things my son may have are crackers, cheese, cheese puffs, pretzels .. that's about it! Thanks!

  • Peanut butter is great if your child is not allergic to it. You can put it on veggies or fruits, or even add it to yogurt.

  • Most of my son's snacks are fruit - bananas, blueberries, halved grapes, raisins. He also loves yogurt and almost any type of cracker.

  • Fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy products, grains...

    There isn't any reason for a snack to be anything other than ordinary food. Even if advertisers and manufacturers never get it through their heads that it doesn't have to be a. salty, b. sweetened, c. in an individual wrapper or d. loaded with artificial flavours, colours, preservatives and 'conditioners.'

    It can even need a fork or spoon, and still be a snack. An 18mo should be on a full mixed diet, with no restrictions on any kinds of spices or textures, although like everyone else, they are easily led to foods that have virtually no texture, need no chewing at all, and are sweetened and salted. Best not to keep a lot of that crap around, really...

  • Diced fruit and cottage cheese, crackers with a little peanut butter on them, blueberry muffin, dry cereal- corn flakes, cheerios or occasionally Life, whole grain animal crackers and milk, sweet potato french fries (I buy the frozen ones), toast with unsweetened jam or jelly, a little hummus on a tortilla.
