The Best Snacks For Your Growing Toddler

 

Toddlers like to graze throughout the day, so when it comes to eating a meal, you will be lucky to get them to eat a bite.

Instead, your toddler is probably going to snack all day. In order to keep your kids eating a well-balanced diet, it’s important to give them healthy snacks. 

 

Here are the best snacks for your growing toddler:

Toast Fingers and Cheese Sticks

Toddlers need dairy in their diet, but they also need something from the bread group as well.

Combine cheese sticks and toast fingers for a fun snack kids can eat on the go.

Whether heading out to the backyard or to the park, toast fingers and cheese sticks are a snack that can be taken along for a healthy snack.

 

The Best Snacks For Your Growing Toddler

 

Apple Slices and Peanut Butter

Peanut butter always adds a little more flavor to any snack.

It’s fun to dip apples into as well.

If you want a healthy snack for your toddler rich in nutrients, apples give your toddler needed fruits while peanut butter provides essential protein and iron.

 

Celery and Peanut Butter

It can be tough to get kids to eat their fiber-rich greens.

When you add a little peanut butter to the mix, toddlers seem to forget they are eating healthy veggies.

Make this snack, even more, fun with raisins.

You can call it “Ants on a Log.”

The celery gives your toddler needed fiber and the peanut butter gives them extra iron and protein.

 

The Best Snacks For Your Growing Toddler

 

Yogurt and Fruit

Your toddler may like fruit, but may not be too fond of that white stuff you’re giving them.

Instead of making it a stressful endeavor, offer yogurt topped with brightly colored fruit like strawberries, blueberries, or bananas.

 

Walnuts and Raisins

Nuts are natural powerhouses filled with vitamins, protein and healthy fibers. For young toddlers, it’s best to chop or grind nuts and add them to other foods.

Walnuts are a softer nut packed with Omega 3, which is needed for healthy brain development.

Once your child is old enough to eat nuts by themselves, walnuts make delicious ways to get the nutrients they need to grow healthy. Add a few raisins to their snack bag as a sweet addition.

When you begin giving whole nuts to your child just make sure you supervise them while eating. 

 

The best snack for your kids?

When it comes to a well-balanced diet, many toddlers are lacking in vital nutrition for their growing bodies and brains.

Instead of trying to force feed them all the healthy foods they are missing in their diet, make the best snacks fun with healthy favorites.
