Need some healthy snack ideas? Try these the next time your toddler is hankering for a bite to eat:

1.Ants on a log — spread peanut butter on celery sticks and sprinkle them with raisins.

2.Apple slices with string cheese or peanut butter (if your pediatrician says it’s okay to introduce peanuts to your toddler now).

3.Frozen no-sugar-added fruit bars with a glass of milk.

4.Berries topped with a smidge of low-fat frozen yogurt.

5.Crinkle-cut carrot “chips” with hummus.

6.Whole-wheat pita-bread triangles or baked wheat crackers with melted reduced-fat cheese for dipping.

7.Dip a banana in yogurt, roll it in crushed cereal, and freeze it for a tasty frozen snack.

8.Whole-wheat tortilla chips with bean dip.

9.Low-fat yogurt topped with granola and fresh or dried fruit.

10.Cottage cheese with cut-up peaches, nectarines, pineapple, or bananas.

11.Whole grain, fiber-rich cereal with (or without) milk.

12.Graham crackers with applesauce for dipping.

13.Yogurt smoothie made with low-fat yogurt, milk, ice, and any fruit (toddler favorites include bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and cantaloupe).

14.Baked whole-grain crackers with almond butter, and four to six ounces of 100 percent fruit juice (you could also dilute the fruit juice in carbonated soda water to give your toddler a fizzy, fruity drink).

15.Canned salmon mixed with low-fat mayo and spread on baked whole-grain crackers or celery stalks.

16.A graham cracker sandwich filled with a scoop of frozen yogurt and sliced bananas.

17.A small baked potato with melted reduced-fat cheese and salsa.

18.Graham cracker with low-fat cream cheese, along with four to six ounces of 100 percent juice (you might consider diluting the juice to make it last longer and to cut the sugar quotient).

19.Whole-grain pretzels, soy crisps, baked pita chips, or rice cakes with a slice of cheese.

20.Cucumbers, celery, or red peppers with low-fat dressing for dipping.

21.All-fruit fruit leather with a glass of milk.

22.Mix one cup of whole-grain oat cereal with 1/4 cup chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup dried cranberries for a healthy trail mix.
