Easy Toddler Snack Options You Can Say Yes To

Snack time is always something that causes me grief. I’ve got healthy meals down, but for whatever reason, I never seem to have snacks ready to go. It is so important for me to get the kids off to a healthy start by choosing foods that set them up for success down the road, so toddler snack options have to be carefully considered.

Gerber Lil’ Beanies has been my go-to snack lately whenever I don’t have any fresh veggies steamed for my youngest, or when my 2-yr old wants a fun snack I can say yes to.
