Toddler Fun - Snacks

"Mommy, I hungy. I hungy." My youngest is very persistent, and this is something I hear several times a day. I have to weigh whether he's truly hungry or just bored. He does need something mid-morning. Four hours between meals is just too long for anyone to go without becoming cranky. During the morning I need to have quick and easy snacks that don't interrupt my teaching. Below is a list of things we like to snack on that are fast and don't really need any (or much) prep:
  • apple slices with peanut butter
  • yogurt with honey or maple syrup
  • raisins or apricots
  • bread with peanut butter or jam
  • leftover pancakes with a topping - They truly are good cold.
  • cheese
  • pickled eggs - super easy to make
  • one or two slices of salami - This is one his dad gives him. I can't stand even the smell of salami. ☺
  • Ryvita crackers
  • smoothies
He prefers to lick the peanut butter off. ☺

In  case you need more ideas I have several snack ideas pinned on my Pinterest "Food" board. Here are a list of posts from other blogs with much long snack ideas than I have here.

After seeing so many good ideas, I think I need to shake up our snack time. How about you? Did anything catch your eye? What does your little one snack on?
