Toddler and Preschooler Snack Ideas

Summer camp got me thinking. What will I do when I have to plan a packed snack and lunch every day? Ok, so I gave him Goldfish (whole grain) the first day and alphabet crackers and grapes the next – I was trying to go with favorites for the first few days.

But what if I have to pack one every day? I dont want to go processed all the time. So I looked around, and here’s what some of the other moms gave their kids – much better choices than mine, and maybe some ideas.

  • Carrots
  • Peach (for the four and five year olds)
  • Apple (for the four and five year olds)
  • Edamame
  • Home baked crackers which looked whole grain
  • Yogurt ( with an ice pack i suppose, again for a older kid)
  • Apple crisps
  • Dry cereal

What do you send with your kids? Do let me know.
