Toddler Snack Ideas

Are you running out of snack ideas?

Trying to keep children interested in meals can be a challenge.  Below is a list of healthy snacks, often offered at our centres, that the children enjoy.  Serve with a glass of milk for a filling & nutritious snack break!

TIP:  This can be a good time to get your child involved in preparing their own personal snack basket for the day.  They can select items they would enjoy & place in the fridge or on the counter where they can access it.
