My son is 2 so he is at that age where he barely wants anything to eat but cereal. I try not to give my kids lots of sweets. What are some semi-sweet foods that can be healthy to eat on a daily basis that he might like: not including peanut butter, nuts, or fruit.

My son loves yogurt and granola. Have you tried dried fruit. Sometimes kids will eat dried fruit. It is a little sweeter and chewy like candy. Apricots, banana chips, dried cherries are good. My son likes peanut butter, and bananas, rolled up in a whole wheat tortia and then sliced. I know tyou said not those things. That is my eight year old. Rice pudding. Any pudding is good for you really. Cream of wheat, or oatmeal with cinnamon and a little brown sugar. whole wheat toast with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Whole wheat bread usually taste sweeter than white. honey ham

My 2 year old will eat Nature Valley chewy trail mix bars the Fruit & Nut ones. I break them into smaller pieces so he won't get choked (I know he has tons of teeth but I still get scared)!!

Nutella healthy??? http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2008/feb...

Making your own is the best bet, and usually cheaper! Many soft fruits don't have to be mashed - most kids love avocado. Mashed sweet potato and pumpkin, slices of cantaloupe and honeydew melon, watermelon (remove the seeds of course), wholemeal bread, toasted or untoasted. Yoghurt - you can make your own or try to but the one with fewer preservatives.

try toasted whole wheat bread with Nutella (you can get it from Walmart by the peanut butter) it's a healthy sweet hazelnut spread...my son loves it!

we do sweet potato, mashed up butternut squash, yogurt (he can put cereal in it), whole wheat bread or toast, cheesy toast, there are juice sweetened cookies and gummies out there with no added sugar, and v8 frusion juice has a little bit of veggies in it yet tastes sweet.
good luck

Our son really likes those small blueberry muffins, rice crispy treats, and pop-tarts. I'm sure he'd eat them every day if we let him.
