If there’s one thing that I wasn’t really prepared for as I stumbled through the first couple of years of parenthood, it would be discovering the sheer amount of snacks that Toddler Triplets can consume.
We always try to have lots of fresh fruit available for snacks, but I’ve noticed recently that the trio have been asking more and more for the packaged junk food that is intended to be only for a special treat.
What’s the best way to avoid a meltdown when Mum says “no” to packaged junk food?
Have a list of tasty home made snack foods on hand!
Here are 5 of my tried and tested “go-to” Snacks that I’m happy for my Toddlers to snack on:
1: Banana and Sultana Muffins.
We make these so often that the kids could probably make them without me now……on second thoughts, I might not have a kitchen at the end so I don’t think I’ll be testing that theory yet!!
2: Apple, Sultana and Cinnamon wraps.
These 3 ingredients were meant to go together, and what could be easier that rolling them up in a wrap and toasting it? Note: Some grown-ups will probably want to add some sugar, but the kids really don’t need it.
3: Make your own Pizza toast.
My kids love Pizza and this easy to make snack is close enough to keep them all happy – They can even make it themselves Click here to see how that went.
4: Mango and Peach Loaf.
This loaf is ideal for slicing into individual portions, wrapping up and freezing. However, in our house the whole loaf is usually gone before I get chance to freeze any.
5: Leftover Crust Breadsticks.
Do you have a Toddler who doesn’t like to eat the crusts on their sandwiches? Why not cut them off and use them to make a tasty snack that they will love.
If you decide to try one of these recipe’s I’d love to hear about it! Pictures would be even better!!!
