Toddler {organic} Snack Ideas

The in-between meal time where the kiddo needs a quick fuel up. These are my usual go to snacks {minus the obvious things like fresh fruit} that are easy and portable to bring along to playdates and car rides.

 

 Annie’s Bunny Crackers – they come in a variety of flavors, but the best are the cheddar and white cheddar bunnies. Taste is pretty much like a Goldfish Cracker and are the perfect size for little fingers.

.

Snapea Crisps Baked Peas in the Pod – found in the salad section of the store, these are super yummy and quite addictive. They are small snap peas that are baked so they come out with a crispy shell and easy and fun to munch on.

.

Horizon Organic Colby Cheese Sticks – individually wrapped cheese sticks aka super convenient to grab out of the fridge as you dash out the door and throw into the diaper bag. Just remember to place it next so something cold in the summer months or else you’ll end up with a melted cheese stick. Speaking from experience.

.

Cascadian Farm Organic Honey Nut O’s – in other words, Honey Nut Cheerios. A classic. Haven’t you seen those Cherrios and Pampers commercials? Except I did not give these to BabyBird until recently, since they contained a nut flavor and I thought were kind of hard to bite down and eat. {BabyBird does not have molars yet}

.

Back to Nature Classic Rounds – otherwise known as Ritz Crackers. Soft, buttery and great with a slice of cheese on top.

.

Santa Cruz Organic Apple Sauce – comes in a variety of flavors from apricot to tropical to mix it up a little. This was one of the first soft foods that BabyBird learned to self feed with a spoon. It took a couple of weeks for him to master the spoon work from applesauce cup to mouth but now he’s got it down and gets more in his tummy than his bib.

.

Horizon Organic Milk Box – yet again a connivence item. Plus these shelf stable milk boxes are great for lunch boxes or day trips since they do not need to be refrigerated.

There was a recent report out that certain organic foods that contain carrageenan which is a seaweed based stabilizer that is used to thicken and keep dairy-like foods consistent and that don’t separate when sitting on the shelves. It’s been classified as a “possible human carcinogen”. Check out The Cornucopia Institute’s shopping guide on which foods to avoid.
