As Eli gets older, naturally he wants to eat more.
Keeping up with his never ending appetite can be demanding.
We have our own "go to snacks" (I'm not including what he actually eats for meals, just snacks) for the days when he just won't stop opening the fridge...and try to keep it healthy as possible while still keeping his taste buds happy.
1.) Sliced apples (sometimes with peanut butter)
2.) Edamame (we discovered this one out to sushi one afternoon, perfect non mess snack!)
3.)Cheese (seriously, is there a kid who doesn't like cheese?)
4.)Yogurt (we only eat greek yogurt because it has less sugar and more protein)
5.)Blueberries, grapes, bananas or cutie oranges
6.) Trail Mix (I love this for on the go)
7.) Cucumbers, tomatoes and carrots with ranch or sour cream
8.)Cheerios (sound familiar?)
9.) Pretzels or ritz crackers
10.) Fruit snacks (not by my choice but by his adamancy when we pass the snack isle and the "Dora the Explorer" ones or "Toy Story" packaging is just more than he can handle. These ones are given rarely and last a long time since I shove them toward the back of the cupboard until he remembers to ask for them. We all have our weaknesses, right?! ;)
But I did find some great ones on pinterest to add and change things up for us.

So, I'm curious, what healthy (snacks) do you have for your kids? We could trade ideas:)
