With a little toddler running around I find it helpful to have healthy snacks ready to go for her often growling little tummy. Here are a few of our standbys that she loves and will often beg for more.

  1.  Raw cheese with sliced organic apples and pears
  2.  Sweet potato chips or fries. For the fries I just slice the sweet potatoes thin, drizzle olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in the oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. For the chips I dehydrate thin slices in my oven on the lowest setting for 6 hours. (time will vary with ovens)
  3. Fruit Milkshake. Just combine 1 cup of milk (raw cow, almond, rice, and so forth) in the blender with one cup of frozen fruit and a tablespoon of honey
  4. Frozen banana's dipped in melted high quality organic chocolate then rolled in walnuts and coconut. (This is a summer treat for us)
  5. Home-made honey custard (sorry this is dairy based). I love the recipe from Nourishing Kitchen.
  6. Hummus (or peanut butter) and carrot or celery sticks. Olivia loves celery. 
  7. Kale Chips (One of Olivia's favourites!)
