I try to buy healthy snacks but I feel like the options are limited. So I need suggestions!
apples, grapes, pretzels...... Why do you feel options are limited? Do your children have allergies to foods?

Lots of fresh fruits. Cheese, yogurt, whole wheat crackers. Carrot sticks, celery sticks.
I also wonder what you mean by limited.
My snack choices vary on if we're home or out, also. Like, how portable they have to be.
We like all kinds of fruits. We're really into the fruit squeezie packs right now. Costco and safeway have amazing ones with apple, mango, and kale in them. Gogurts that are colored/ flavored naturally and the chobani kinds. Good carbs like whole wheat crackers, turkey-roni, baby bel cheeses. Some people would debate health status of granola bars but I'm a fan.
Simple things like popcorn even. Costco has a ton of stuff we like like those tiny little bran muffin things with flax. And mixed nut clusters, an edamame mix we love.

Oh and welcome to the group! :)
One of my favorites when at home is frozen red seedless grapes. They taste like candy!
Last night I made banana "ice cream," which was really just frozen banana with a bit of water blended to the consistency of ice cream. My girls loved it.
Fresh fruits and veggies, hummus, salsa (I make my own), yogurt, cheese sticks and we also do goldfish and pretzels from time to time. Cereal.
