Healthy Toddler Snack Ideas!

My kids are always searching for a snack. I think Nick, who is 2, could just graze all day long. I don’t like giving them processed, packaged snacks, so I try to keep stuff on hand to make  healthy snacking easy. 

Here are a few of their favorites:

  1. Granola Bars This is our favorite snack, hands down. I make them homemade, so I know exactly what is in them and they aren’t loaded with sugar. They are super easy to make and never last long. 
  2. Yogurt Bark This is another super simple snack to make, that is a different twist on yogurt and fruit! 
  3. Loaded Apple slices–  Apples and peanut butter is a favorite, this is just a different, fun way to make them. You can even sprinkle on granola, mini chocolate chips or even sprinkles to make it even more fun. 
  4. Banana Roll-ups When I was little I loved peanut butter and banana sandwiches. These little PB and banana bites and wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla, rolled up and cut into little pieces.
  5. Frozen Yogurt Blueberries– I use plain greek yogurt and fresh blueberries. Mix them together in a bowl. You can always add a little honey or cinnamon to add some extra flavor. Lay them on a parchment lined cookie sheet and freeze for one hour. 
  6. Homemade trail mix– Cheerios, pretzels, mini M&Ms, raisins. sunflower seeds, almonds or whatever other little snacks you have on hand to throw in. Mix it altogether and enjoy!
  7. Popcorn– If you pop it yourself and don’t add a ton of butter, this is a fun snack. My kids love watching it pop!
  8. Fruity ice pops– My daughter would eat ice pops all day long if we let her, these are way better than ones bought from the store!
  9. Fruit leather– These are really easy to make and so good!
  10. Ants on a log– I remember eating this in preschool myself. I think if you put peanut butter on anything, it tastes good!
