50 Healthy Snacks for Toddlers, Kids and Picky Eaters Story

Coming up with healthy and delicious snacks for your kids can be a challenge! But toddlers and kids don’t have to live off of sugary snacks. There are lots of fantastic healthy snacks that taste great and are not filled with unhealthy ingredients or lots of processed sugars.

Fruit is one of my ultimate favorite snack ideas for toddlers. I recommend lower glycemic fruits such as:- – Apples or Pears, cubed or thinly sliced – All the Berries (blueberries, strawberries, etc.) – Clementines or oranges – Stone Fruits (peaches, nectarines, plums,etc)

Best raw veggie snack ideas for kids: – Celery Sticks – Carrot sticks – Cucumbers, sliced into sticks or diced – Snap peas – Cherry tomatoes, cut in half

Granola Bars are a Healthy Snack

Healthy Toddler Snacks: Dairy

– Plain yogurt: either whole milk or lowfat is one of my favorite snacks for kids or for picky eaters – because you can mix it with some fresh fruit and homemade granola. – Cheese, sliced, cubed, or string cheese – Cottage cheese

– Hummus: as a dip for veggies, with whole grain crackers or sprouted wheat bread – Roasted Chickpeas – Any chopped nuts (age 2+) – Any beans as finger foods: edamame, black beans, – Cubed tofu 

Protein Rich Snacks for Toddlers
