5 Favorite Toddler Snack Recipes

Try these toddler snack recipes for your family this week!

A few months ago, I started a little tradition of making a snack recipe every week to pack for my son to have at daycare. I’m not 100% consistent, but I make it happen most weekends! I used to love baking, and it’s kinda fallen by the wayside (like many other things in my life) since having T. Some weeks are total fails, like the time I decided to wing it with a baked oatmeal snack cup without a recipe, and you know how baking without a recipe typically turns out. Total gloppy failure. But I’ve also come away with a few favorites, so my ego can handle a few fails every now and then. 😉

I’ll post another time about some of my favorite packaged snacks, since we use those plenty often as well.

The great thing about a lot of these recipes is that I can freeze part of the batch to pull out on a day when I don’t have anything fresh on hand.

Here are some of our recent faves! (more…)

We typically have at least three different milks in our fridge at any one time. I will admit…I am one of the most indecisive people in the world. It’s nice to have options! But the milk situation just kind of happened.

Here’s the deal. My son drinks either whole milk or 2% milk. I usually buy whichever organic option is cheapest that week. I’m lactose intolerant, so I could just buy lactose free milk for both my son and me. BUT… I really like almond milk in my smoothies. (#highmaintenance) My husband, well he got hooked on coconut milk in his coffee one time when his brother made him try it at Starbucks. So now I buy a carton of coconut milk for him every week.
