Healthy and Quick Toddler Snack Ideas

My toddler has always been a grazer when it comes to eating! So she loves to have snacks πŸ™‚ And this Mama wants her snacks to be healthy and nourishing especially because her meals are smaller. I want to make sure she is not eating junk!
We definitely don’t eat the American Standard Diet in our home but neither are we a “Real/whole” food family all the way with buying all organic/ local food. I wish were! We do try to keep out diet healthy and there are certain ingredients we do try to avoid.

With doing daycare in my home I always have 4 little ones who want snacks and they want them now! So I try to make sure that I have healthy go to snacks and that they are easy for me, not too much prep work or that I can prep them in advance πŸ™‚ I love freezer cooking.

I have one little gal I take care of who is allergic to milk so if I have serve diary I must have an alternative for her.
If I buy prepackaged items for snack I usually will buy organic to avoid high fructose corn syrup, soy, and artificial food coloring.
