What kind of snacks do you give your toddler?

I'm running out of ideas. We do the fruit, peanut butter crackers, and apple sauce, but does anyone else have some suggestions?

  • Whole foods has these organic cereal bars, which my son likes, but other than that I just do different fruits, he loves mango and I will get it again when it is in season, umm Blueberry apple sauce, chicken soup.

    Man I guess I do a lot of diced fruits, sometimes I steam veggies let them cool, dice them and give him a veggie mix.

  • goldfish crackers, pretzels, yogurt (that's their favorite), and they also love the baby bell cheeses or string cheese.

  • String cheese, grape tomatoes (if your toddler is really young, cut them up like you would grapes) carrots (same cut them up), crackers, bananas, apples, clementines, apple sauce, snow peas, really any chopped up fruit or veggie. they may say they don't like them, but keep offering them. If that's all that's there, they'll eat them! I also buy yogurt in the tube (like go-gurt, but the organic version) and freeze them. they are YUMMY...I eat them as a great 60 calorie snack myself!

  • Well, usually fruit...bananas, peeled and sliced apples, oranges, grapes. She loves yogurt, crackers and cheeses. We sometimes give her goldfish crackers or dry cereal. Sometimes we do peanut butter toast. This kid is tough, because it seems her tastes change every other day. So, I just put out things that I know she likes...can't force her to eat them.
