Here are our top 6 super-simple toddler snacks ideas for when you’re out and about.

Grab-and-go snacks are a sanity-saver for toddler mums – we’ve all been at the mercy of a ‘hungry’ two-year-old, who’s having a tantrum in the soft play area because they want something to eat. Snacks are especially important for toddlers, as they need to eat little and often. But a varied, balanced diet doesn’t always go hand in hand with convenient and portable.

With a little bit of planning, you can stay one step ahead of meltdowns, and give your tot an on-the-go bite to eat at the same time.

Edamame pops

Veggies aren’t always an easy sell, but edamame have the fun factor. Steam frozen edamame pods or buy them fresh, then shell them and store in an airtight container for easy snacking. They can count towards your tot’s five a day and they’ll keep little fingers busy, too!

Fruit kebabs

Easy to make, and cooling on hot days! Cut wooden skewers in half, thread on your toddler’s favorite fruits (banana slices, pear, halved grapes, apples, strawberries and blueberries work well) then freeze on a lined baking tray for a couple of hours. Just take off the skewers and transfer to an airtight container before you head out. Frozen fruit takes a while to eat, so will keep even the most fidgety toddlers occupied for ages!

Flying saucers

Nut butters are delicious. Smear some on two rice cakes or mini pancakes, then stick them together for a mess-free snack that’s sure to go down a treat. Experiment with cashew, soy nut or almond or good old peanut.

Whole nuts shouldn’t be given to children under five, but you can give nut butters to kids from six months upwards, as long as there’s no history of food or other allergies in your family.

Super Yummies Dairy Pots

With no artificial preservatives, Super Yummies Dairy Pots are a toddler’s favourite snack. The best bit? No fridge required!

Dairy Pots are made from fruit and berries blended with milk, which is then gently heated and sealed, so they can be eaten at any temperature, making them a convenient go-to companion on your toddler’s adventures. They’re a source of calcium, too. Just don’t forget to take a spoon!

Pitta Pockets

Stuff mini, whole-wheat pittas with hummus and sliced cucumbers, or cream cheese and grated carrot for a pocket sandwich snack.

A resealable plastic bag will keep them fresh and mess-free in your bag. Easy for little hands to grab and munch.

Nut nuts

Can you tell we’re a bit nut-butter obsessed? (See our warning about giving kids nuts, above.)

To make nut butter ‘sweets’, blend 245g of natural yogurt, 245ml of almond milk and 133g of your favorite nut butter, then freeze in ice-cube trays. You can top with mashed raspberries or strawberries for flavor, or stick lolly sticks in before freezing to turn them into ‘lollies’.
