Grab the BEST snack guide you’ll ever find for toddlers and be ready to tackle snack times with ease!
Sometimes the fact that you have to come up with 2-3 snacks each day just plain sucks.
(if not more when it comes to those little snack monsters)
I’m a dietitian mom of two boys and trust me when I say…I know the burden of always having to have snacks on hand a million times a day. I know what it’s like to feel like I’m never leaving the kitchen and am always “just one snack away” from finally getting some time to rest.
And we all know how easy it is for kids to become obsessed with those palatable, easy-to-consume packaged snacks
While these are amazing convenience foods, most of us have built a reliance on them. And our toddlers and preschoolers end up ONLY wanting those yummy snacks and skip over meals altogether. They whine, beg, point and tantrum for more goldfish, yogurt tubes, pouches, cheese strings…you name it! And I get it – these are easy-to-chew, carb loaded and come in fun packages. But over time? They’re continually exposed to these same foods which build up a preference for these generally sweeter tasting snacks. They eat them too frequently, they fill up on them and low and behold…mealtimes become that much less appealing in their eyes. And before you say “BUT THEY’RE HEALTHY!”, I’m here to tell you that even healthy snacks can be mealtime ruiners!
This guide helps take you back to the basics, gives you easy ideas to get you out of the snack rut, while also providing you with make ahead options for when you do feel like you have some more energy to plan.
It also ensures you’re giving your child exposure to more of the types of foods we want them to learn to love – and not just re-enforcing their goldfish obsession.
That being said – because mom life is insane – I’ve also included a ton of dietitian approved pre-packaged snacks that can still be used for times when you need something in a jiffy.
