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.
