Toddler snack ideas

I feel like we give DD (14mo) the same few snacks over and over again. Help me brainstorm some new ideas! She has molars, but still doesn't like really crunchy things like raw carrots. She just spits them out and/or feeds them to the dog. also, she is still just learning to use spoon and fork. Right now seem of her favorite snacks are:
Apples, Cheese, Pretzels, Raisins, honey graham sticks,

ISO......BG 4.0 in aplix

Re: Toddler snack ideas

I just made these last week. They are relatively healthy and my 15 month old loves them.

Otherwise we are pretty boring. Cheese, crackers, blueberries, grapes, strawberries, etc. I've tried bagels but he's not a fan. I need ideas too!

Re: Toddler snack ideas

My 14 month old DD is crazy about banana oatmeal cookies... I don't remember the exact recipe, but you mash 2-3 really ripe bananas, add 1 cup applesauce, 1 tsp or so of cinnamon, a handful of any kind of dried fruit you want (optional), and 1.5 cups of any kind of uncooked oatmeal. Mix it well, spoon cookies onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 for ~35 minutes.


We also do:
Apples with string cheese or peanut butter
Yogurt with berries
Pitas with guacamole or hummus
Lots of fruit
Pretzels
Whole wheat waffles with peanut butter

My Mood:
Maybe some healthy pancakes with fruit on them? You can make a large batch and they freeze well. I would do raspberry, blueberry, strawberry, or banana.

These cookies sound really good!

My DD really likes these "Zucchini Tots." They're really easy to make and I've substituted spinach or carrots and they taste great either way. I make a batch and freeze them then give a couple as a snack. I cut down on the onion, but that's just a taste preference

Re: Toddler snack ideas

These are some good ideas! Keep them coming!

Okay....here is a kinda stupid question. How can I teach her how to dip things? Whenever I give her something to dip she just sticks her fingers in it and eats the "dipper" plain. Like, I've tried to give her a little honey mustard with our homemade chicken nuggets and she just stuck her left hand in the sauce while eating the chicken with her right hand. LOL She looked at me like I was crazy when I took her hand out of the sauce and dipped the chicken in it. Same thing with hummus and pita.

Sorry...I overthink things sometimes (okay...a lot of times!)

She would love these (and so would her daddy!). I'm assuming it was old-fashioned oatmeal and not the quick cooking kind, right?
