Having easy to make, nutritious and yummy snacks that are ready to go in our household is essential - especially with a hungry toddler running around! For me, it's so important to know just what I'm putting into his body, so I love making quick homemade snacks whenever I can that are handy to quickly reach for whenever he starts to get hungry.

These snacks are full of amazing, nutritious and wonderful ingredients that will leave your little one feeling satisfied between meals and are perfect for school lunchboxes too if you're kids are a little bit older! Plus, they're so yummy that I'm willing to bet you won't mind finishing them off if your bubba isn't that hungry!

These snacks are great for preparing in advance and storing in an air-tight container in the fridge or even in the freezer. They're also meals in their own right (fibre, protein, healthy fats etc...) that they make wonderful meals too depending on how hungry your little one is. So if you're looking for new meal/snack time ideas for your kiddies then keep on scrolling! (There's also a video at the end showing just how quick and easy they are to make!)
