Healthy toddler snacks

My son asks for "snacks" all the time!!! I have run out of ideas!

He loves cheese & crackers, yogurt squeezes frozen, frozen fruit, tangerines, cliff bars & goldfish crackers.

Other healthy snack ideas that are healthy & simple to make?!

My 2YO really loves seaweed chips - the Annie Chuns brand, you get them in the grocery near the other Asian items. They are crispy and slightly salty, we call them green chips and she thinks they are a special treat. They are a little $$ but we all love them and DD and DH scarf down large quantities of green veg happily :-)

My dd likes to dip cheese crackers in pb. She also loves fruit leather, the little applesauce pouches, sliced strawberries, cubed cheese (bought pre-cubed)

ETA- she also loves cottage cheese, tortilla chips that she can dip in her own salsa, red peppers with some sort of dip..

She's in a dip loving phase...

Re: Healthy toddler snacks

Nuts, Soy Nuts, dried fruit (prunes, raisins, cranberries, apricots), banana ice cream (blend frozen over ripe bananas with just enough milk to make it soft serve consistency, can be frozen to sorbet consistency), Dried veggie chips, Apple slices with peanut butter dip, cottage cheese, string cheese, fresh veggies with hummus, popcorn, bran muffins, graham crackers, tortilla rolls (cream cheese, ricotta, or refried bean based, with finely chopped fresh veggies snuck in, slice up like pinwheels), drained fruit cocktail mixed with yogurt .....
We do smoothies quite a bit, for meals and snacks, you can really get creative with what you put in them (I can get a whole serving of spinach down DS, if I sneak it in a smoothie). You can also do the sneak approach with muffins.
