Currently, I have three preschoolers. When we need a snack, it's to tide us over to the next meal... a meal I want my preschoolers to be hungry for. In addition, our snacks are frequently on the run--tiding the kids over until we back home from our errands, a quick post-nap snack before heading out to play, and so forth.
Here are the top 5 full tummies preschool-friendly snacks: portable, healthy, and reasonably quick/uninvolved.
- sliced apples with peanut butter
- homemade popcorn
- cheese stick with mini-box of raisins (our favorite portable snack)
- In-the-Moment Trail Mix (a compilation of whatever's on hand: peanuts, raisins, mini marshmallows, cheerios, chocolate chips, pretzels, etc.)
- other seasonal fruit with or without some sort of protein complement (peanuts, peanut butter, cheese, etc.)
