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??

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.
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
