Healthy Toddler Snacks from Amber Massey

I'm Amber and so excited to share some healthy toddler snacks for you today! My kids snack all day. They don't eat a lot at one meal sitting, and sometimes hardly at all - therefore snacking is our favorite hobby. Parker is always (and I mean always) hungry. If the girl moves to a 'hungry' state, we are all in for it. The struggle is real, folks. We started snacks when Parker and Jolie were around 8 months old. We offered things like puffs, and the yogurt melts to start, and then moved to more 'real' foods as they approached the 1-year mark. Goldfish, crackers, whole milk Greek yogurt, diced up soft fruits (strawberries, grapes, banana), and applesauce. I know there are a lot of babies with lactose and gluten allergies and I've done my best to include dairy-free options, so hopefully this will be found helpful to my mamas with babies that have those needs.
