Can we talk about food today? Specifically, healthy snacks?
My toddler is at an age where she’s constantly eating. She’s an awesome eater and has been since we first introduced solids which we are so incredibly grateful for. She’s really only shown a distaste for eggs and cheese but will gladly eat any veggie, fish or protein we give her.
This kiddo isn’t picky and has a healthy appetite which makes cooking and preparing meals for her super fun!
She’s always the first one in line at meal time! She knows where I keep her dishes, cutlery and cups and sets herself up to eat even before dinner is served!
Now that she’s snacking more and asking for food (Momma eat!) when she’s hungry we’ve had to start incorporating more healthy snacks into our weekly shopping trip. Although she’ll gladly eat fruits or veggies for snacks I’ve challenged myself to try different snack combinations and recipes to keep things interesting.
I’ve been experimenting and found quite a few budget friendly snack ideas that keep things fun and interesting while being budget friendly!
I’m totally new to the world of healthy toddler snacks folks! And so, I’d be lying if I told you I haven’t been tempted to just buy boxes of prepared snacks to fill her tummy when she gets hungry. But, money. Yeah, they’re expensive!
Although there are a heap of super great and healthy snacks options out there , I have the time and want to save the cash. So, I’ve taken to experimenting with various DIY snacks to try and keep snacks as healthy and budget friendly as possible.
