My ‘lil stinker!

Sometimes finding healthy snacks can be a challenge. I wanted to share what Sophie enjoys snacking on (which is mostly anything and everything). Picky, she is not! It seems there are better ‘snacky’ selections for adults, but most kids snacks are full of sugar and fake ingredients.

Thankfully, we have a great eater and she is very good about eating fruits/veggies.

Trader Joe’s is our go-to for all things produce. They have fantastic red grapes and strawberries. Other favorites…bananas, baby carrots, spinach, broccoli, blueberries, sliced apples, & oranges.

If you can, I suggest buying organic produce. If NOTHING else. I mean, have you walked through a Wal-Mart produce section lately? Enough said.

Another TJ favorite…mild cheddar cheese sticks. The BEST!! I even snack on them.

We both like these because they are a low calorie snack but have good protein. Plus they are organic.

Z Bar & Z Fruit Ropes

I am a HUGE fan of everything Cliff bar. Their Luna bars, granola bars, and kid snacks are the best! Cliff products are organic and these bars are baked. We both love the Iced Oatmeal Cookie. Sophie actually calls them cookies. You can’t go wrong with Cliff snacks!

Quick breakfast.

I was so excited when I ran across these. Organic whole grain oats & quinoa w/ blueberries. These are a great, quick breakfast. Target carries these.

Happy Baby pouches

So, think applesauce in a pouch. But with MUCH better varieties and even veggies thrown in the mix. This one is banana, beets, and blueberries. All organic, found at Target.

Gerber pouches

Even Gerber makes organic ones! I posted a few different brands, because these are the ones we like best. Gerber seems to have a better variety of fruits. Sophie loves all the combinations.
