TOTD 2/25: Kid's Snacks

What kinds of snacks do your kids eat? Healthy? not healthy? What is the one thing they want that you always cave and give to them even though you know it's not good for them?

I try to make sure snacks are healthy.. Cheese and crackers, Hummos, Veggies and dip, Nuts, etc. But once a week when we go to the grocery store, if they behave they are each allowed to pick a piece of candy!!!

Everything in moderation.  My kids are really good eaters so if they ask for a cookie, most of the time I'll give them the cookie.

Funny thing is, they tend to ask for the healthy stuff anyway.

Awhile back I used to be able to only get it at Trader Joes or Whole Foods for like $3.99, but now you can get it at any supermarket and on sale as well. They are a healthy cheese puff thing. I don't like them that much but Michael and E eat it like it's going out of style- I have to take it away from them!

In my house we are not really health nuts but we do try to watch what we eat and snack on. Mikey loves to snack on golfish, granola bars, cookies, cake, chips, popcorn, cheese it, yougrat sometimes, pudding,fruits snacks and candy. I really don't crave anything Mikey eats because me, my husband and Mikey pretty much all eat the same snacks.

i don't cave very often lol. They eat yogurt, apples, grahm crackers, raisins, or a banana for a snack. Once in a while i'll let them have blue chips...but like i said...i don't cave very often

We mostly snack on the 100 calorie packs- they have different types of cookies, trail mix, pretzels, chocolate covered pretzels, yogurts, etc.  I also buy cheese crackers, goldfish... mainly whatever I'm in the mood for when shopping.   I'm not super concerned about their snacks being healthy since they are only eating a small portion of it.
