    Our Go to Snacks – Toddler Version

    When it comes to snacks for my little one I try to keep it as healthy as possible. I try to incorporate as many fruits and veggies  into her diet everyday. She has a well balanced diet and I’m proud to say she is a good eater but has her picky moments like any other kid. I know I’m always trying to find a new treat or something new to add to her snacks that way she doesn’t get the same things all the time but it can  be challenging coming up with ideas.

    Mommy Struggles of the Week
