  • applesauce, raisins, and mommy's snack mix (cheerio's, kamut puffs, gerber puffs, yogurt melts, raisins), yogurt, apples, fruit cocktail, cheese, and anything that I feel is a healthy option. She is 2 and discovered wheat thins and tortilla chips this past weekend b/c she caught daddy eating them

  • I like to get him string cheese, fruits, and he loves yogurt. You can also never go wrong with veggies dipped in ranch dressing.

  • When I go to the store to buy snacks for my children, I try to think what kinds of foods they have been eating and then I go to the healthiest I can get. In a box, I might buy, granola , yogurt ,granola bars, some fruit snacks( but you have to look at the sugar on each box) Or I might go to the vegetable and fruits and I will buy all kinds of fresh fruit and vegetables and maybe make a vegetable platter with some special kind of dip that the child or children might like and enjoy to get them eat a lot more of the good things, rather then eating a bunch of junk foods. Remember this really depends on the age of the child. But that is what I would do for the school age children.If you have a younger child then I would think of going to the fruits that are more age appropriate for that child/ children. Ex. If I had an toddler I might go to cut up bananas, or the little snack that the stores have in the infant section of the store
