Healthy Snacks for Kids: 20 toddler friendly ideas

 As mama’s one of our top priorities is feeding our little ones healthy, nourishing food. And to to be perfectly honest it can be TOUGH. And we all know that packaged snacks are typically NOT healthy. There are a few store bought snacks that I give my son but they are a TREAT. Despite what the package tries to claim(yes…even organic) they usually aren’t nourishing. So if packaged foods are out what can we give our little ones to nourish them on the go??
