Why It’s Important Toddlers Snack + WIN Healthy Toddler Snacks

Organix Goodies Snacks giveaway

Just like us, toddlers are busy little people.

Always off discovering, learning and trying to push the limits. This requires a lot of energy which means they need to snack frequently.

Unfortunately for a lot of parents, their child is not quite old enough to speak or tell them they are hungry which results in them getting ‘hangry’. Yes that’s right, just like us they get hangry too. They could also appear tired, clingy or worse – be working up to a full blown tantrum. Feed the animals NOW!!

The importance of toddlers snacking

Toddlers need to snack!

There are many benefits to toddlers snacking and I’ll share a few with you below.

• Their bellies are small and cannot hold a lot. This means smaller but more frequent meals are required to keep them going.
• Even adults snack throughout the day so it is expected that toddlers will as well. Why? Because it keeps them going between meals.
• These snacks throughout the day ensure your toddler is getting top-ups of nutrients to meet their daily needs.
• Snacks add variety into their diets easily. Snacking encourages them to try new foods, new textures and different tastes. This is great for teaching your children about healthy eating habits from an early age.
• Parents cannot be expected to cart full meals around for toddlers while they are out and about, which is another reason snacks are great for toddlers. They are still fed and they are more content and happy for mum and dad while at the shops.

While it is not always possible to give your toddler healthy snacks, there are certain brands that make it easier and more achievable. I will be the first to tell you that my toddler does not only eat healthy and organic food, she is more than happy to chomp down a cheese stick or a non-greek vanilla yoghurt with chia seeds. While I try to limit the amount of crap my kids eat, I don’t always have time to prepare something junk-free and that is okay.

I will often look for healthier options of snacks that are convenient for my toddler and pre-schooler because I would like to avoid any shopping centre meltdowns due to them being hungry. This is just one of the reasons Organix toddler snacks are always in my handbag. All Organix products come with the Organix No Junk Promise that they are made with the best organic ingredients and contain nothing unnecessary.
The packets are small enough to fit conveniently in my bag or nappy bag, yet big enough to fill the hunger void and subdue the little monsters until we get home.

The favourites at the moment are the Organix Goodies Corn Puffs. These come in 3 flavours: Carrot Stix, Saucy Tomato Noughts & Crosses and Cheese & Herb Puffs. I couldn’t tell you which one the front runner is because they finish the packets with not a crumb to spare. These are fantastic at only $2 each!! Definitely value for money.

The Organix Goodies Farm Animal Biscuits are a box of small biscuits like the boxes of tiny teddies but these tasty little biscuits are made from wholemeal wheat flour, grape juice and added vitamin B1. (I know they don’t sound very nice but the kids do really like them). They are quite cute and the girls enjoy looking at each individual biscuit to see what animal it is before they eat it. I find it good to teach my pre-schooler the sounds animals make. These are available at Coles for $4.40.

My girls have also tried the Organix Goodies Mini Oaty Bites and while these individual portions are a great size, my girls only ever seem to eat half of them. I don’t know if the flavour is a bit too strong for them or if it is the oaty texture they aren’t keen on but they never finish the entire mini bite. They keep going back for more later so I think they are fans but obviously a smaller portion would be sufficient for them. There are 11x10g mini bites in each box for $5.99 at Coles.

    My bubba just loves any fruit.I always cut up little chunks in the fridge for easy snacks in or out and about

  3. 03/12/2016 / 8:29 pm

    I make my kids cold frittata, so it can be taken with you, so it has everything your kid needs, eggs and vegies. They love it, can’t get enough, you can put whatever you like in it. You can cut it into shapes to make it fun for them,

    I often cut carrot sticks and some sultanas and cheese chunks to my sons lunchbox, a bit of variety and flavour with added healthy nutritional vale

    Toddler eat, are you kidding, I think my boy lives on air some days:)
    I pack a “Snack plate” every day. It has olives & Pickles. Dry Biscuits, fruit, cucumber, hummus and other tid bits i have at the time. Takes me a little while and some days he hardly touches it, others he’ll eat it. Cheese is hit & miss.

    My little one is all about the snack life! When we’re out and about I have at minimum a box of sultanas, a kiddy fruit salad bar and a “squishy breakfast” that can stay out of the fridge. Anything we can grab and go is life! At home, it’s any kind of fruit, veg, rice cakes or the occasional biscuit.

    My kids enjoy Cacao and coconut oil crackles, a naughty but slightly more nurtitious option from the original.

    My not-so-toddler (3 years 3 months) still loves toddler snack bars, but he remembers to share with his 9 month old brother too. And there’s always free fruit at Woolies!

    Our little Miss 4 loves to munch on green capsicum….easy, healthy and portable.

    Fruit, boiled eggs and yogurt are big hits, especially during the warmer summer weather.

    My toddler loves cranberries (Craisins) and frozen peas to snack on! Bit of a weird combination but at least it’s healthy.

    Lovers of par-frozen pieces of fruit here!
    Pineapple, berries, sliced pear,
    Once they’ve been in the freezer they’re soothing for little ones who are teething,
    Very refreshing on a hot summers day,
    It’s a little burst of cool fruit that sweetness up the day!

    yogurt with real fruit for my one year old he loves it and all flavours he is only one and his legs start kicking and he claps is hands every time he sees the tub

    I can’t go past sultanas. Small, doesn’t leak (on a scale of 1 to yogurt, I mean), perfect for small hands, and I don’t have to prep much besides pouring them out of the packet. The trouble is how much else looks like sultanas – especially at the playground. Other kids’ sultanas left under the swing, small rocks, rabbit poop… sigh. There’d be no mistaking Organix biscuits, I’m sure!

    Fruit sticks because they are so easy to carry around in your handbag, they are mess free and you can eat them anywhere. Even I have snacked on one or two before

    Custard; it’s an easy snack on the go, and we can give it a healthy twist by mixing through chopped fruit!

    In typical toddler mode she demands ice when we’re out and about and it’s not exactly something I can have handy in my pocket!

    My daughter’s favourite traveling snacks are rice wheels and watermelon. Lots of crumbs and sticky fingers but in the car I prefer her happy.
