Bananas, celery, popcorn, yogurt, applesauce, strawberries,oranges. Sometimes we make smoothies with frozen fruit. I buy one box of poptarts for the month and when its gone, thats it. Same with fruit snacks.

Quoting PikachuLuver:The ladies who said they would never ever feed their kids mac and cheese are just straight out lying....or crazy? Just trying to make themselves sound good to complete strangers.
We eat hummus and veggies, all kinds of fresh fruit, air-popped popcorn, greek yogurt, homemade trail mix. When we eat snacks at home, we make them. Buying processed snacks doesn't make sense. They're more expensive and they don't taste as good.
Occasionally we have junk food but it consists of homemade cookies or muffins. Or some kind of berry/fruit crisp.
We eat a lot of apples, bananas, plums, grapes...oh, and yogurt.
I dont buy chips.
My husband eats popcorn occasionally but Im not a fan of popcorn.
I just ate a Kashi Dark Chocolate Coconut layered granola bar, and the kids are eating graham crackers. But I'm sure those are unhealthy and we will all die of food related cancer soon.
We are not anti junk food, but we do everything in moderation. My kids eat one "junk" snack a day, and two healthy snacks. For the healthy snacks the have hummus, or guacamole (I make it with "slimcados" that have less fat, plus it has tomatoes and onion and garlic and lime) or tzatziki. They eat each of those with fresh vegetables. They also have fresh fruit, smoothies, Greek yogurt (plain, not the sugar loaded flavored stuff).
