    Default Toddler snack ideas?

    Hi ladies i really need some easy healthy snack ideas for ds (18 months). I know I've seen some great threads on here before but I can't find them any where.

    Shopping day tomorrow so I'm writing my list now. Any suggestions would be great!
    Thanks

    I keep a little container in DDs bag (she's 19 months old), it has pieces of dried fruit and I add cut up cubes of light tasty cheese. She loves it! She also loves "dipping", so we have vegetable sticks (carrot, cucumber or cherry tomatoes), or rice crackers that she dips in cream cheese, or fruit pieces that she dips in yogurt. Messy, but again she loves it!

    Bliss balls:

    Makes about 30 balls

    1 cup puffed millet or rice
    1/2 cup desiccated coconut
    1/2 cup sesame seeds
    1/2 cup sunflower seeds
    1/2 cup honey
    1/2 cup tahini
    1 cup almond meal or LSA meal
    1 cup chopped dried fruit ( organic sulphate free)

    Place all dry ingredients in a blender and mix together. Gradually add the tahini and the honey until thoroughly combined. Roll into balls and coat with either sesame seeds or cocunut. Keep in fridge.

    Muesli bar

    1 cup of mashed sweet potato ( or pumpkin or carrot)
    1/2 cup nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, walnut butter, macadamia)
    2 eggs
    2 cups rolled oats
    2 cups of dried fruit ( buy organic -sulphate free)
    Preheat oven to 180. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients, the mixture should stick together when raw
    Spread into a cake tin lined with baking paper and press down ( like a cheesecake base) cook 15 mins until golden, cool in tin then lift out and cut into bars
