Toddlers are always hungry and down for a snack. These healthy options will keep them happy and full!
In a perfect world, we’d all have time to make homemade snacks and treats for our little ones whenever they want something. Unfortunately, that world doesn’t exist. When it’s snack time, many parents just grab something from a box to give to their child, rather than slicing fruits and veggies into bite-size pieces.
Sure, it’s best to feed your toddler fresh produce or homemade baked goods that don’t include a lot of sugar, but it’s just not always the most practical option. Fortunately, there are plenty of genuinely healthy and easy snacks for tots you can purchase at the grocery store (or on Amazon).
The options below are not only delicious, but you also won’t feel guilty for loading your child with sugar (although, for the record, there’s nothing wrong with an unhealthy snack every once in a while).
Once Upon a Farm Organic Kale and Green Apples Pouch
Refrigerated Once Upon A Farm pouches are the closest you can get to serving your little one fresh fruits and vegetables. Made of USDA organic, non-GMO ingredients, they’re also cold-pressed to lock in nutrients and preserve taste and texture.
We recommend using these as a convenient substitute for purees. They make really handy, healthy snacks. We particularly love the kale and green apple because it helps your toddler get greens in, but there are so many great flavors, including non-dairy smoothies and yogurts.
Once Upon A Farm, Organic Green Kale & Apples Pouch, 3.2 Ounce
Cold-pressed pouches full of nutrients.
Stonyfield Organic YoBaby Plain Whole Milk Yogurt
If you’re looking for yogurt, our pediatrician recommended Stonyfield Organic YoBaby specifically. The plain option is great, because there’s no added sugar, and then you can easily add more flavor and sweetness with fresh fruit.
These little containers make a great breakfast or lunch, but they’re also ideal for snacks when your kiddo is extra hungry.

Cerebelly Organic Blueberry Banana Sweet Potato Smart Bars
Cerebelly’s new organic Smart Bars are an excellent on-the-go snack for toddlers who can chew. They’re small enough for little bellies, but filling enough to keep them satisfied. They’re also packed with brain-supporting nutrients, like zinc, iron, and vitamin C.
The ingredients are clean and easy to read, and there’s a decent amount of protein with no added sugar (although, keep in mind, sugar might be in the fruits). As a bonus, the Peppa Pig collaboration makes the box fun!

MySuperSnack Organic Granola Bites
The MySuperSnack Organic Granola Bites are another of our favorites! Each bag contains six bite-size granola “cookies” that are easy for toddlers to hold and bite into. The ingredients aren’t quite as clean as some of the other options on our list.
Still, overall, these are a pretty healthy option with fiber, protein, and a low sugar count.

Nature’s Bakery Fig Bar
Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars are made with whole grains and real fruit. They also don’t contain ingredients like dairy, soy, or high-fructose corn syrup. They also taste really, really good (like, you’ll be stealing them from your kiddo), and are very filling. They’re a little high in sugar, but if you’re cool with that, these make a great afternoon snack or lunch addition.

These super crunchy and delicious green pea crisps, are a great snack option no matter where you are.
