post #21 of 25
We just today made one of the larabar recipes from Kitchen Stewardship - cashews, dates, coconut and vanilla - and it's really tasty!!

Yeah, been meaning to vacuum up my son's snacks that he dumps on the floor. Yogurt smoothies work great for us. As do apples & raisins. I do fall back on cheerios, annies crackers, though. Would like to cut back on the number of boxes I buy! Healthy cookies are a good idea (no sugar). Car snacks are the hardest for me for fear of choking and not wanting to have nut butter or cheese everywhere.

if you have a trader joe's in your area, plantain chips and the freeze dried fruit are good toddler snacks. The fruit is good too b/c it melts in the mouth and is pretty easy for little ones who don't have a lot of teeth. Also dried fruit like raisins, blueberries, apples can be good depending on what sort of things they can chew.

I also LOVE the homemade larabars from Kitchen Stewardship. Way tastier than the packaged ones, IMO. I love zesty cranberry and cherry almond.

Bananas, apple slices, cheese, hard boild eggs, meat is a good idea too, although I never think of it as an on-the-go snack - but why not? Chopped chicken would be pretty toddler friendly, I think. As well as deli meat (I buy Hormel naturals without the nitrates/ites.)

oh, I think a chopped up plain omelet (or scrambled eggs) could work too.

My 15 month old loves: salami or pepperoni, cheese sticks or cubes...I always stick frozen veggies--green beans, peas, lima beans, broccoli, carrots, etc--in a plastic baggy, and by the time we are ready to eat, they are defrosted...she likes them cold! Boiled eggs are another go-to for us, or lunch meat, or bacon. I am brand new to this way of eating (we are actually going Primal)...are soy or beans TF? We have previously rinsed canned beans and put some in a plastic baggie, or taken along little cubes of raw organic tofu or edamames...my rule is that soy is a 1-2 times a week thing.

you can make ginger carrots but leave the carrots as spears - highly transportable and snackable that way.
