My 2 year old seems to have hollow legs at the moment,
She generally eats healthy food but snacks are off the scale at the moment,
Of course crisps/ treats etc are more appealing just like for grown ups & I don't want to be hitler about it but need some ideas please to make sure I keep it balanced.
She snacks on carrots / cucumber / apples as well as "shite" but wondering what others give there wee ones for snacks especially before bed!
Thanks

Before bed if still hungry, a bowl of cereal with milk or a digestive biscuit with a cup of milk. Daytime snacks, strawberries, grapes, yoghurt, Jaffa cake, biscuit, kiddilicious snack range.

Malt loaf, breadsticks and dairylea, raisen bars, rice cakes, peanut butter on toast, cheese straws, obviously fruit and dried fruit.

Mine is a completely hollow-legged snack monster.

She has some snacks of dubious nutritional quality like mini chedders, quavers or mini cookies but I try to limit them.

Other things include toast.
Pretty much all fruit with strawberries, nectarines or plums being her favourite.
Cubes of cheese or babybel.
Raisins.
Sticks of cucumber and carrot.
Breadsticks.
New potatoes (keep a bowl of boiled ones in the fridge).
Healthy(ish) muffins or flapjacks if I've had time to make any (rare though).

My 2yo DS has just regained his appetite after God knows what and he has turned hollow too!

He loves fruit and nut mix, raw radishes (weirdo, he won't touch cucumber), malt loaf, licking the butter off bread and butter, cheese, breadsticks, little liebniz biscuits, all the fruit.

Sorry, not much different to what you do already!

Thanks guys !
No that's helpful to know that I'm not going to go to mummy hell for giving her Jaffa cakes / mini cheddars !
