As I mentioned in another thread, I'm being anal and writing myself out lists of ideas so when I get to internet grocery shop night I don't go completely blank.

Anyway, we've got into a bit of a rut food wise, and the one thing I'm struggling with is snack ideas that both me and ds (2yrs 9mths) will enjoy and find appetising!

I don't mind some "convenience" stuff mixed in because I have "healthy" stuff other days. So, what do you give your toddlers as snacks?

My list of ideas so far is: biscuits, raisins, grapes, cheese (either cheddar, babybel or dairylea strip cheese), bread & butter, sausage rolls, cold sausages, crisps (usually the salt & shake kind with the salt omitted).

Any other suggestions for a bit of variety please?

Have you been peeking through my window?
That is more or less what I give DS1, but ham instead of sausage rolls and also applrs and grapes and cold chicken drumsticks

I can't come up with any inspiration either
but if it ain't broke, don't fix it

Try more adventurous cheeses, you may be surprised. Dd likes quite strong ones.

How about sandwiches. Hummus and pitta bread.
Bagels and cream cheese.

Iced Gems (prob not vg for you but divine IMO!)
