    Default Snack ideas?

    Please share (other than fruit, cheese pieces, dried fruit). I'm tired of using packet snacks (mini rice biscuits, tiny teddies etc, not daily as he has kinder (daycare)
    Thanks!!
    Ps- I bake my own pita bread crips and they're a real hit!

    - mini quiches
    - homemade sausage rolls - chicken mince, grated zucchini, grated carrot, onion, garlic and mixed herbs
    - spinach and feta/Vegemite and cheese/ham, cheese and pineapple scrolls
    - vegetable hash browns - grated zucchini, grated carrot, grated sweet potato, grated potato, bit of egg & flour, fry like a pancake
    - savory muffins
    - pita bread pizzas
    - fruit kebabs (I know you said no fruit, but they can add a bit more fun)
    - cruskits with peanut butter or Vegemite
    - carrot, celery and capsicum sticks with hummus
    - make your own ice blocks, I blend mango, blueberry, banana and watermelon together and freeze. They are delicious!
    - egg and lettuce sandwiches

    I do popcorn in my microwave rice cooker for DS, he loves it plain, no salt, no oil or butter :-) this is the one I have so the lid is secure.

    Great ideas. Thanks.
    ATM he's snacking on some Hommus dip (around 1Tb) with 4 Ritz crackers and mini fruit sticks which had a little raspberries, kiwi, grapes and banana on each one.

    I made spinach & fetta scones recently which DD loved.

    I'm in a bit of a food rut with DD at the moment. The problem with baked stuff for snacks is that she loves them fresh but when I freeze and then offer them later she's not keen.

    @AmyEL, how do you use your rice cooker to do popcorn? I have the same one and would love to try it!
