  • My daughter's favorite were Cheerios, graham crackers and raisins (we cut them in half). They were very easy to toss in a tupperware and go.

  • Only offer her snacks if she's genuinely hungry. Don't offer her food if she's not hungry, because that can instill bad habits with food. Such as eating when bored, eating just because, eating to surpress feeling/emotion. You really don't want to instill those bad behaviors in her, so don't feed her unless she is hungry.

    If she is genuinely hungry between meals then fruit or veggies are your best choice. Dry cereal such as cheerios is another good choice.
