  • I also bake savoury and sweet treats and also place them in little packs.

  • My daughter has hommus with water crackers, rice crackers with peanut butter or cream cheese, sultanas, cruskits, cheese, pretzels, greek yoghurt, dried fruit, homemade mini healthy muffins

  • Little homemade tubs with cheese and crackers and other sweet and savoury nibbles – a bit like your own version of a pick n mix tub.

  • My older daughter loves those squeezy yoghurts. They have plenty of flavours and some with veggies as well as fruit. Popcorn is always a hit, too. Carrots sometimes, and of course fruit. They change what they like, too, so it can get tricky finding something for everyone.

  • For under 3 I used to give them soft fruits eg soft pears, bananas etc. They used to love sultanas and just even plain bread without the crusts. ( wholemeal is best ). Then once over 3 when they are safe with chewing maybe dried fruits and nuts provided they are not allergic to them , celery , carrot sticks etc.. are good and cut not too thick .

  • My daughter loves carrot sticks, and it keeps her busy lol. She also loves those rice cake things too, reminds me of popcorn!

  • Nuts, but not dried fruit as it’s very high in sugar and sticks more to the teeth then fresh fruit. We also like roasted broad beans and roasted chick nuts. Another good one are vegetable fritters and things like onion balls in besan flour. My kids love also sweet potato waffles which I make with sweet potato, egg, raw vanilla powder and lentil flour.

  • I agree with MoM 90758, nuts and dried fruits. Cheese on toast, or peanut butter on toast is also filling, so long as your child doesn’t have nut allergies.

  • Raw broccoli??? That’s something quite unique!! :-)

  • Hummus and brown rice crackers and/or carrot sticks. My kids also love raw broccoli…..?

  • For me it’s nuts and dried fruit like dried apricots and cranberries.
