Snacks

  • I love watching my daughter discover the tastes and textures of new foods, but I find it challenging as well. We provide balanced meals, but more of a challenge for us is snacks. She will eat fruit all day, but we get concerned about too much sugar. Of your toddler’s favorite snacks, which do you feel are the best nutritionally? 

  • With our 22 month old, we are more concerned with the fruit juice than the fruit. We will let her munch on fruit frequently throughout the day, so at least there is some great fiber to go along with the sugar.

    One of her favorite snacks is pickles! Sometimes we will chop up cucumbers and tomatoes, and she loves it, and this makes us feel better too.
