Snack ideas for 3 Year Olds

healthy snack ideas for 3 year oldsSnacks! Any homemade recommendations for some tasty snacks suitable for a 3 year old? We’re getting quite tired of fruit, yogurt, carrot & celery, muesli bars, sultanas…. Any other (healthy) ideas?

  •  Banana muffins are a hit in our house( i freeze them then take one each out in the morning and they are ready for morning tea) plus i keep sakatas in the lttle little clip lock containers for a quick snack as well as nuts, cheese and cherry tomatoes, and strawberries ( my kids are snackers wont eat big meals) so there’s no hassles when they ask for food all day long.   Jasmine
  •  Pikelets (flour, milk, egg), hummus and crackers, scones.   Kate
  •  Homemade pita chips (Lebanese or pita bread grilled in the oven for a few minutes then broken up) with avocado and tomato cut up into a chunky salsa with some cheese. I also do quesadillas with these ingredients.   Jackie
  •  Favs at our house are Rice cakes & crackers, banana muffins, cheese, cruskitts with spreads & pop corn.   Grae
  •  Hard boiled eggs cut into quarters, dry cereal, homemade mini quiches/sausage rolls/healthy biscuit recipes that you could make together and eat, etc etc    Katy

  •  Maybe you can make up some mini quiches? They seem to go down quite well with little ones.   Alana
  •  I make my daughter mini muffins with chopped/grated fruit or veggies in them – she loves them, and you know exactly what’s going in them. She also loves cheese cubes with sliced ham as a snack, as well as warmed baked beans.   Hayley
  •  We make banana pancakes. Just mix one egg and one mashed banana. You can add honey for sweetness.   Cassie

Fruit salad ice pop (mixed fruit diced up and place in a freezeable cup or ice pop tray, cover with water or diluted juice). Banana blueberry wholemeal muffins. Avocado sushi (boil white rice until soft and gluggy. let cool a little. place on your nori sheet (seaweed) and spread out an even layer (about 1/2cm thick. slice avocado and place on the rice. roll up tight and the slice into small rounds).
