  • Follow the food pyramid. Foods that you can identify where they came from.

  • As many unprocessed foods as possible. Fresh fruits are great for snacks - to make them fun you can put them on skewers or cut them in fun shapes (melon balls, pineapple stars, etc.). Make sure her grains are whole grains - if you start them out on it, then it doesn't taste "funny" to them (my husband grew up with white bread and I still have a hard time getting him to eat whole grain). Whole wheat pasta, brown rice, etc. Limit sugary, salty snacks but don't forbid them or she will want them that much more.

  • Some kids get juice boxes a lot, save them for road trips, colorful Godfishies are ar good snack, organic cookies, or whole wheat snacks are great. Gluten free foods also, such as pretzels, lots of fruit, DelMonte has a lot of good snacks. There are also FF sweet potatoes now , haelthy as well as a little sweet.Yogurt is a good snak, esp. if you start them young, even frozen yougart bar. I give my GR-Kids Pudding Pops and they have no idea what it is, but it looks like a popsicle, they LOVE them. They also have naturl Peanut Butter and kids friendly pudding. Hope that helped some !!
