My DS and DD are currently eating for Britain (both under 2). I can't get enough food into them between meals. Can anyone recommend me some healthy snacks? Finding the stacked shelves in the supermarket a little overwhelming...

My children go through phases of liking cheese straws, the packs of little breadsticks (they come in little packets like crisps), marmite rice cakes, cucumber and carrot sticks and baby bells.

If they are super hungry, I’d focus on healthy fats and protein. Boiled eggs, nut butter on toast, avocado on toast, avocado and banana smoothies, oatcakes or rice cakes with nut butter. And then whatever raw veg and fruit they like.

My 20 month old usually has one of the following:-

Pom bears
Cucumber strips
Pepper strips
Suckies (yoghurts you suck!)
Ginger nut or digestive biscuit
Apples cut in pieces
Oranges cut in four skin left on
Dry cereal in a bowl (handful of cornflakes/rice cripies or alphabears)
Snack box of raisins
Pitted olives in a bowl
Toast with butter
Corn on the cob

Thank you so much, that's given my plenty of ideas.

Have you ever tried some of the supermarket baby snacks?

Yes I have used them a lot when my daughter was just starting to wean for the first 6 months or so.

I liked the organix range. They did carrot puff crisps that my daughter loved but be warned they are very messy and turn everything orange!! They do cereal bar type things which are so yummy and soft so easy for little ones to eat - the carrot cake ones were a hit here.

Organix also do some lovely oat and raisin biscuits, little bags of breadsticks.

Ella's kitchen do puff crisps too which my daughter liked.
