“M-om! D-ad!, I’m hungry!” Well, if you have a toddler, hearing this phrase will come as no surprise to you. After all, little ones grow into taller, older (and hopefully wiser!) grown ups, by eating healthy meals – and a few snacks too. So we have a terrific DIY to share with you today, especially if you have a toddler in your family – DIY Toddler Snacks!
Don’t feel intimidated by how super cute some of these look. They are far simpler and more step-by-step to make than you might think at first. Remember – every cook and home cook who created these recipes wanted to see a mile-wide grin on a toddler’s face, just as much as you do! So simply read the directions & ask a family member or friend to take a look if you are unsure. But we are confident you will be DIY-ing fun toddler snacks in no time!
99.9% of these recipes are healthy. Yes, there are a couple of cupcakes and sweet treats – because just like Cookie Monster sings on Sesame Street that a cookie is a “sometimes food” we know that every once and awhile you want to DIY this type of treat for your little one. So we’ve included a few of these too.
If your family is always on the go, you’ll be thrilled to see there are portable snacks too, so you can get out there & bring that terrific toddler snack with you, wherever your afternoon or weekend day brings you next. Best of all, because you’ve created that snack, you know it has healthy ingredients that your toddler will eat & enjoy and that you’ll be pleased they had as a snack that day, instead of something you rushed to grab from a vending machine for what always feels like way too many quarters for whatever you’ve just bought!
One of the best things you can do with toddler snacks, is to DIY them ahead of time for a few days. Most of them you can store in your fridge or even a few on the countertop in a sealed container. Then you’ve got a snack all prepared without needing extra work at that time of day.
So, let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing!
