Food: Healthy Snacks

This is a bit later than planned, but below is a list of possible “healthy” snacks for your little one’s. I picked up a lot of ideas from a previous post:  New food and drink guidelines for 1 to 5 year olds.

Check out my previous posts on Feeding our children, Breakfast variety and Pudding/desert variety.

I’ve had a lot of great feedback about these posts, so I’m glad you’ve found them useful!

I’m always stuck for ideas for healthy snacks, so if you have any others, please let me know!
