Healthy Snacks for Toddlers

By Kim Roach

As a parent, it's important that we teach our children good eating habits. This tender age is when healthy habits are started.

Apple Sauce:

Here is a favorite among toddlers. However, apple sauce provides more than a tasty treat. It's also packed with vitamins and nutrients for leading a healthy lifestyle.

Apples contain 50 percent more Vitamin A than oranges. Vitamin A promotes digestion and growth. It also promotes healthy eyes.

In addition to Vitamin A, apples also provide an abundant supply of other items. For example, they contain more Vitamin G than almost any other fruit. Vitamin G is often referred to as the "appetite vitamin" and promotes digestion and growth.

Apples are also rich in Vitamin C, which helps eliminate free radicals throughout the body, protecting us from a wide range of diseases.

Bananas are another great choice for toddlers.

This tasty fruit is loaded with vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, and Phosphorus.

Banana's are also a good source of fiber, helping you to stay full and satisfied. In addition, they are one of the best sources of potassium, which helps your muscles and nerves function properly, maintains proper electrolyte balance in your body, and helps lower your risk of high blood pressure..

If you're looking for healthy snacks for toddlers as well as quick energy booster, banana's are a perfect choice.

Strawberry Banana Smoothie


1 banana
4 strawberries
1/2 cups skim milk
1/2 cups apple juice

Here is a refreshing drink that your toddler will love. Not to mention, it's packed with nutrients. Simply combine all of the ingredients into a blender. Pour in the liquids last and blend until you reach the desired consistency.

In minutes you will have created a tasty treat that is filled with Vitamin A to promote digestion and healthy eyes. The banana also provides plenty of potassium to maintain proper electrolyte balance in your body and help lower your risk of high blood pressure. Lastly, the strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C, which helps eliminate free radicals from the body.
