I'm looking for some healthy snack ideas for my 7yr old DD while she's on school holidays
She's a bit fussy and won't eat veggie muffins or slices or nuts and muesli.
No issues with fruit but she gets bored eating fruit all day everyday.
Would love to hear your suggestions

Healthy snack ideas for school age kids

Home made dips? Like Hommus etc
Veggie Fritters (my kids like these rather than muffins)
Cheese and crackers
Feeding them in the holidays is not the most enjoyable thing (well I find this) and they seem to want to eat all the time.

Yes holidays seem to be trickier.
Some great ideas thank you

Does she like salad type stuff?
Here is some stuff I give my DS (although he's only 2.5) but it may give you some ideas
Home made guacamole and crackers
Crisp bread with Vegemite
Cut up cherry tomatoes
Nuts and raisins
Rice crackers - the big ones and the smaller ones
Jacket potato with tuna

Dont forget about serving fruit in a variety of ways... fruit cups, fruit skewers, on toothpicks to dip into yoghurt (or melted chocolate as a special treat)
Sausage rolls, mini quiche (there is a simple recipe using a bread base fill with egg cheese & ham), lasagne cups (wonton wrapper in muffin tray, fill each hole with bolognese sauce top with cheese and bake), eggs in a variety of ways, muffins / slices / baked goods of all sorts, cheese and crackers, chicken strips

Make ice blocks out of yogurt and fruit
Mini chicken wings either crumbed or honey / soy
Rice cakes and avocado or nut butters
Salmon sausage rolls
Rice paper rolls ( prawns and veg)
Veggie spring rolls
Cheese and spinach triangles
Mini meatballs or falafels
Crab or fish cakes
Make your own noodles and serve in noodle boxes. ( not the 2 minute ones - make your own, get rice noodles, veggie stock, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, veggies and even add chicken or prawns )
Air popped popcorn
Aranchini ( rice balls)

My big two (8 and nearly 6) are always snacking during the holidays. I like having things around that they can help themselves to, so I cut up vegies (carrot and celery sticks, cucumber, capsicum, dice some cheese etc...) and have them in clear containers in the fridge so that they can get a bowl and help themselves.
I'll make batches of pikelets (apple or plain) or crepes and again they can help themselves.
We have a popcorn maker that they can use quite easily.
They like puffed corn too.
I cook a silverside and roast a chook once a week to use as cold meat and just slice up the meat ready to serve and they can grab some of that when they're peckish.
They love homemade sushi and rice paper rolls but that can be fiddly for me with a two year old hanging off my leg - I'm all about minimum effort lol!
Cereal is good for a snack too - mine love dry weet-bix with butter on it!
I always have hard boiled eggs in the fridge too - eggs any which way are a hit, which is good because we get over a dozen a day from the girls.

Mum used to make big pots of soup and we would help ourselves to a small mug as a snack. You could also freeze them in small containers so she could choose from a variety.
