Natural Birth & Parenting Natural Birth & Parenting

Looking for ideas for toddler snacks that are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and soy-free.

And of course without refined sugar, corn syrups, additives, etc.

I'm having a hard time thinking of anything aside from fruits and veggies (with/without a nut butter), eggs, and meats.

It really is neat.. I have used ours with a couple of my little ones, they love it. With my first two, I kicked it old school and used an ice cube tray.. LOL.

We make a homemade hummus around the clock at my house and its ds's fav food. Instead of olive oil we add water. Babaganush is also another fav, it's smoked eggplant then mad the same way as hummus. I also have been playing around with fruits and veggies in the dehydrator. We do kale chips and yesterday I dehydrated pieces of squash, I call it squash jerky and my son loves it.

Would you share your hummus recipe? I don't think I've ever had it.

Our whole family eats this way, for the most part. It felt restrictive at first but it basically means we eat more produce and feel a lot better without all the junk.

We do some dairy but I find that I keep resorting to cheese and yogurt for snacks since they're convenient, and I want to reduce that.

Quoting mrsrobin:

Peanut/sun butter in celery with nuts/seeds in it, or rasins. Dried fruits, homemade pureed fruit strips, homemade jerky,.that almond yogurt stuff (made with almond milk instead of dairy), kim chi...

That's all I got of the top of my head. Why such a restrictive diet for a child?
