Quick & Easy Toddler Snacks

As many of you know life can get pretty busy. With work, crazy kiddos, family needs, etc. The last thing you probably want to think about are recipes. 

Like many new parents, I ask myself: “What are good meals for toddlers?”

I don’t really care to stand in the kitchen for hours on end to make the perfect meal, and even if I wanted to there just isn’t enough time in my day to do so.

So, I always find myself wishing we had something quick on hand!

If you find yourself googling, what are some good snacks for toddlers, or what meals can I make for my toddler? This article is for you!

Quick & Easy Toddler Snacks

1. Rainbow Fruit Cup with Greek Yogurt

How fun are these rainbow fruit cups?! Simply layer rainbow coloured fruits in a clear plastic cup or mason jar. We’ve used diced strawberries, oranges, pineapple, green grapes and blueberries, but feel free to sub in other fruits that match those colours! Serve along with greek yogurt to add some protein and make this snack even more fun to eat!

2. Mini Sweet Potato Muffins 

Sweet Potato muffins are packed with nutrients due to the addition of sweet potato! How many muffins are loaded up with vitamin A, C, fibre and potassium? Not many! These mini muffins are tough to beat. And they’re so tasty! I love to get recipes for these off of Pinterest! 

3. Cottage Cheese & Frozen Blueberries

This snack is so simple, but so tasty! Simply add frozen blueberries to cottage cheese and allow it to thaw in there for a few minutes to release all of those juices. The cottage cheese adds a nice dose of protein and calcium, while the blueberries provide the fibre. Best snack EVER!

4. No-Bake Oatmeal Balls

Energy bites serve as good snacks for toddlers on the go since they’re freezer-friendly and relatively mess-free. As a bonus, the recipes are typically simple enough that little ones can help prepare them. Get your toddler to help add the ingredients to the bowl, mix together the ingredients or roll the mixture into balls!

5. Grapes & Cheese Cubes

Cheese is just one of those foods toddlers love. And what goes better with cheese than some fresh juicy grapes? Be sure to cut the grapes in half if small or quarters if they’re larger in size to minimize any risk of choking.

6. Mini Blueberry Muffins

Blueberries and bananas form a delicious combo and naturally sweeten these tasty mini muffins. Try topping them with a thin layer of almond butter or peanut butter to add some extra protein and healthy fats! Typically I go with the box blueberry muffin mix for these! So delicious! Pinterest has a lot of good recipes as well. 

Some Other Snack Ideas:

Fig bars, Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies, Annie’s Cookies, Bamba Peanut Snacks, Cheerios, cheese sticks, boiled organic eggs, unsweetened apple sauce, guacamole, and unsalted toasted crackers.

What's your kiddos go-to snack? 

Thanks so much for reading.

Save or Splurge: Nursery Edition

When I found out we were expecting our little babe, I hit Amazon and started building the registry of my dreams to include every product I had read was a MUST have.  Between the items purchased for us by loved ones and the things we bought ourselves, the amount of money that was dropped to give this little love all of the items the internet told me I had to have, was hefty.
