Our kids are almost 2 and 4 and I constantly feel like we are feeding a zoo. Every time I turn around Austin is telling me "my belly hungry" and Charlotte is climbing up her high chair. Our favorite healthy toddler snacks are smoothies and home made popsicles but they are impossible to bring when we are on the go.  If your like me, you constantly are running out of ideas on what to grab that is healthy and nutritious.

We try our best to pack whole foods. When packing on the go we use our  Yum Box! It has every compartment labeled so I remember to balance nutrition! It is also fun for them to eat out of.  You can purchase the Yum Box here 

12 Healthy Toddler Snacks 

1. Dried fruit

Specifically dried bananas. They taste like little pieces of candy and my kids gobble them down by the handfuls. 

This is one of my favorite snacks to occupy my kids. They are determined to peel them alone and it takes them at least 5 minutes. Mini mom break anyone?? 

3. Veggie Straws

We are currently really loving these veggie straws. They're crunchy, semi healthy and easy for on the go.  *FUN TIP*  Make veggie straw necklaces and bracelets. 

We love that they make these bars in kid sizes. They are healthy, yummy and most importantly you can get them on Amazon, you can find our favorite ones here

5. Protein Balls

We love to make protein balls! You can find our latest recipe for pumpkin protein balls on the blog.

6. Boiled eggs

Fun for a toddler to peel and easy for a baby to eat. Mom loves these for a quick snack too!  Looking for a quick way to boil eggs? We throw ours in the instant pot and set it to MANUAL 6 minutes.

These are Austin's favorite! They're sweet and just the right amount of crunchy.  Perfect bars contain over 20 organic superfoods and high quality whole food protein .  We pack these bars on all our adventures to keep us fueled.  There are 13 delicious flavors to choose from in two different size bars.  You can find Perfect bars here

8. Fruit & veggies strips

We love Veggie- Go's. I’m tempted to make my own!! Let me know if you have a good recipe. 

9. Pouches

Let’s talk about pouches. Austin has phased out of loving them and Charlotte sorta likes them. I keep them on hand as a quick grab but I try not to over do it.  Try  Squooshi reusable pouches.

10. Crackers

So easy to throw in and there are so many healthy options/brands. I try to stay away from prepackaged bags but they sure do make life a whole lot easier.

11. Apple Sauce

Recently my kids have been on an apple sauce kick but it has been really hard to find some without loads of sugar. We have been buying the 365 Everyday Organic brand. You can find these here.

12. Yogurt

I know what your thinking.. yogurt is sooo messy!! But we have a little trick that makes it totally safe to eat in the car seat. Push a straw straight through the top and you have an on the go yogurt smoothie.

Like with all foods, you have to be careful of the sugar. We try our best to stick to whole foods but sometimes the option isn't there.  What's your favorite on the go snack?

    Puffs are a go-to in our house as well. I’ll have to try out veggie straws as that’s not one I’ve tried out yet!

      They’re a good distraction food for us! I feel like as my kids get bigger and bigger I am trying to find quick snacks that I can throw at them before they loose it 🙂
