It’s Snack Time


Toddlers utilize a lot of vitality to develop and play, and their little stomachs can’t hold enough sustenance to keep them from getting hungry between meals. This is why a scheduled mid-morning and afternoon snack are important. It helps to give kids energy and tide them over until lunch and dinner are ready.
Snacks should include a balance of healthy foods. Kids can come to think about a snack as an opportunity to eat something sugary or carb heavy, but snack time is a great time to get healthy, delicious foods into your little one.

Here are a few snacks to keep on hand to be sure you don’t have a “hangry” toddler to deal with:

Fresh fruits:
Apples
Bananas
Grapes
Oranges
Strawberries
Peaches

Vegetables:
Carrots
Peas
Broccoli
