Today I am sharing my favorite snacks for my kiddos! Snacks are a huge part of life because well… snacks! (hahaha!) I always have to keep snacks in the car, diaper bag, anywhere we go!
Fruit I will start the week off by cutting up our favorite fruit. Strawberries & blueberries get put into little containers in the fridge and bananas are cut up when they want to eat them. This helps me give them a small baggy of fruit VS a cupcake!
Gold Fish I buy bulk goldfish crackers from Costco and they are so easy to take on the go! Wild likes them because they are the perfect munching size for his little fingers and it makes it easy to give him in the car.
Gerber Snacks We love all things Gerber! Lately, both my boys have loved the Puffs, Lil Crunchies, & Yogurt Melts. Reasons we love Gerber and their snacks: 1. Little ones 8-24 months get about 25-30% of their daily calories from snacks, Gerber makes sure to provide their snacks with the best calories for their growing body! 2. 1/3 of 8-24 month olds are not eating whole grains on a given day, this is where we love the snacks because it provides whole grains in a easy way! 3. 90% of 2 and 3 year olds fall short on MyPlate recommendations for whole grains, again another reason why Gerber makes sure that their snacks are packed with all the proper nutrients to help your growing kids! COUPON HERE!
Apple Sauce Pouches These make eating on the go so easy! We also buy these ink bulk at Costco and it makes it so easy for both boys to snack down on something better then a cupcake!
Hopefully these will give you some ideas for your kiddos to help them get some better snacks in their diet!
