What healthy snacks do your preschool age children enjoy? "@JuicyJuiceUSA Bunch member

I have trouble getting my 4 year old to eat healthy snacks. He always wants cookies, gummy candies, or friend chicken. What healthy snacks do your kids like that my kid may like too?

  • Ants on a log - a stalk of celery filled with peanut butter and raisins on top. Baby carrots & ranch dip. Sliced apples, with or without peanut butter. I've bought baby cucumbers (6-pack from Wal-Mart) and they love those sliced up, plain & with ranch. Whole grain crackers & string cheese.
