1. Hard-boiled eggs
The best thing about hard-boiled eggs is how quick and simple they are to produce. Additionally, larger numbers can be produced. Add as many eggs (with the shells on) as you’d like to some water that has been brought to a boil. The refrigerator has a week’s worth of storage space for any leftovers. If you’re packing them in a lunch box, slice them up or cut them into smaller pieces. You can serve the egg whole if you’re giving it to a toddler as a nutritious snack.
2. Parsnip crisps
Parsnips should be peeled before being continued to be shaved till the centre is reached. Add a little oil, salt, and perhaps some mild spices before giving it a gentle toss. On a baking sheet, spread out the parsnips and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C/160°F fan/gas 4, while shaking the pan occasionally to get the pieces to crisp up. Once it has had a chance to cool, serve it.
3. Easy Broccoli Cheese Cups
This is an excellent option if you’ve had trouble convincing your kids to eat their vegetables. These tiny vegetable muffins are a delightful snack that even your pickiest eater will accept thanks to the combination of cheese and Ritz.
4. Berry Smoothie Bowl
Although I’ve always liked smoothies, there are occasions when I want to eat my breakfast slowly rather than quickly. I made this smoothie bowl with Jamba as inspiration at that time. Birmingham, Alabama native Josh Carter
5. Zucchini tots
Set the oven’s temperature to 400. One egg, one cup of seasoned panko bread crumbs, and one and a half cups of grated zucchini are combined. Scoop up the mixture with a tablespoon and wring off any extra liquid. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper after forming into a tater tot. 20 minutes in the oven, or until crispy and golden. Ketchup is recommended. Cut the tots into halves or quarters to make them small enough for your child to eat as a toddler-friendly snack.
6. Apple doughnuts
Slice an apple through the core to create 12 cm-thick discs. To make a hole in the centre and get rid of the pips, use a tiny cookie cutter or an apple corer. Spread cream cheese over the slices, then garnish with sprinkles, raisins, or flaked almonds.
7. Pinwheel Sandwiches
These tiny sandwiches come in a wide variety of flavours, including turkey and apple, Hawaiian pizza, and hummus and vegetables, to mention a few. Choose the one that your family will enjoy the best, or combine a few for a fun snack.
8. Elvis Banana Bread
We always had bananas in the house because my son enjoyed them as a toddler. We experimented beyond the realm of plain banana bread because we didn’t always eat them before they were too ripe. That is how we developed Elvis bread! Wisconsin native Liz Somppi.
