Can we talk about food today? Specifically, cheap healthy snack options for kids? If you’re looking for delicious, easy and cheap healthy snacks to feed your kids then you’ve come to the right place.
My toddler is at an age where she’s constantly eating. Seriously, she’s always 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 cheap healthy snack options for kids 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.

That cowboy caviar looks amazing. Think I’m going to have to try that one for sure!
Great ideas for snacks, I like the apple chips it’s really good with caramel dip.
Mmmh I love apple chips!! And also I really love salted almonds as a snack 🙂
Smoked salmon and cream cheese cucumber bites sound like perfection even though it’s only 930am here! I’d eat them right now! 🙂
Love all these options. I just wish I was good at cooking though 🙂
So I have been needing some healthy snacks for myself since I’ve been running more and would want more healthier snacks. I’m so glad I came across this post and cannot wait to try these out!
YUMMY! I’m so bookmarking this and trying each and every one of them. No more, “ugh what can I snack on today” for me.
Love love love all these!
I love these ideas! I’m always looking for more healthy snack ideas, and I loved that these went beyond your typical plain fruits and veggies list. (Not that fruits and veggies aren’t great … they just get old after awhile.)
I tried roasted chickpeas once, and they did not turn out well. I will have to try them again using your recipe/instructions. I really want to like them!
We love apple chips, too, but we do ours in the dehydrator.
Great list – I am excited to try some of them out soon!
What did you dislike about the chick peas?
Always looking for fresh takes on healthy snacks! Thank you!
Roasted chickpeas are on of my favorites! I love the crunch
I have no idea of the cost of chestnuts where you are but roasted and maybe sprinkled with a herb or spice, makes for a great snack
