The most popular word in our house is either “No” or “Snack” and I’m sure other moms can agree. I’m sharing my 10 healthy snack ideas for toddlers to keep them happy. *This is a paid partnership with Beech-Nut® Naturals™
Most assume that popcorn is not qualified as a healthy snack. I beg to differ, because when you keep the butter and salt and any other toppings off, you’re left with a healthy whole grain snack for your toddler. A favorite in our house is Skinny Pop!
Celery and Peanut Butter
This one is fun because you can let them spread the peanut butter on the celery stick. I love to snag a few for myself and throw some raisins on top for a sweet treat.
Apple and Almond Butter
One of our favorite snacks during the Fall is Honeycrisp Apples with almond butter. So juicy and yummy! The portable nut butter packs are great for taking your snack on the go. We grab these Justin’s Butter from Amazon and the boys love them!
Animal crackers are so easy to pack up and take with you for shopping or a trip to the park. Choose an organic brand and keep the sugar low for a healthy snack.
A new brand we recently discovered is Beech-Nut® Naturals™ Baby Food and Snack Bars. Elliott still loves to have purees for breakfast in his oatmeal and their snack bars are great for on the go. You can’t miss them in the baby food aisle, they have an adorable honeypot jar with a green lid!
We’re also promoting Beech-Nut’s new #Infantfluencers campaign. It seems like everyone is an influencer these days, doesn’t it? And some of the most opinionated influencers in the game are our babies!

Cinnamon Raisin Bread
Not only is this a favorite in our home for breakfast, but I can slice these into sticks and they’re great to have as a handheld snack. Toddlers love the sweet cinnamon taste and the fun raisins as a surprise!
The boys are obsessed with olives! Not only are they packed with powerful antioxidants, it’s also a healthy fat. They have so much fun throwing them on their fingers and eating them right off! We grab these handy Olive Packs on the Go for lunch boxes.
Grapes and Cheese Stick
Create a little mini charcuterie board for your toddler! Grab green and red grapes, slice into quarters to reduce choking hazard and add in their favorite cheese sticks.
These are the best for on the go and running errands. Pouches have come a long way and they provide the whole milk fat that toddlers need for development.
While some of these snacks are already pre-packaged, we like to grab a few of these lunch and snack accessories to keep in the diaper bag or in the car.
These are our favorite healthy snack ideas for toddlers so they can feel full and energized throughout the day. We try our best to minimize processed foods because our family knows the behavior changes when things are not natural. Which is why our favorite is the Beech-Nut Natural Snack Bars!
