Ava loves grapes and little cherry tomato's. We also give her raw snow peas to snack on. She has a medical condition that doesn't allow her to eat high potasium foods like banana's and she can't eat anything that needs a great deal of chewing so we stick to things like baby food and rice cakes !

my son (Sept 26 09) looves nilla wafers, peaches, bannanas, cheerios and other cereals, graham crackers, cheese, i also try to give him vegetables but hes going through a phase right now where he only wants sweets, and he is persistant about it! so i bought this Kohls cook book by jessica seinfeld called "deceptively delicious" and her recipes are AWESOME!!! i recommend it to anyone with picky eaters!!

Sounds like we all gravitate toward the same snacks! :) Christine likes yo baby yogurt, nutrigrain cereal bars, chewy granola bars, goldfish, cheese strings, crackers, fruit (grapes cut in half, bananas, etc), toast with peanut butter and of courses cookies! :) She gets picky too though when it comes to meals; if I give her an option, she'll say "Yay, chicken" or whatever but then when I give it to her it's "no chicken". So, I have to make her meal and present it and she then says what it is and usually eats it but not a lot! I've heard toddlers do not gain a lot of weight their second year.

my boy, 7/910 will not snack, period. anything other than his normal meals is a no no. if you gve him anything he plays with. he will stick it into his mouth and frown and spit, or if he does attempt to eat if he gags and often brings up the contents of his last meal. all he does is drink. he loves his tea, juice, more tea and juice.

My little one loves all sorts of fruits. We try new thing all the time and I still have not found anything she would say no to! I give her grapes often and what i do is slice them in 4 and put then in a bowl for her to eat. she love apples and i cut them into thin chip like slices. She love melons, bananas, kiwi, goldfish, broccoli, yogurt, berries, cantaloupe . I gave her frozen yogurt tubes a lot when she was teething! I would not try raisins, i too would be affraid of her choking because they are very chewy...

I give my son cheddar cheese, cheerios, little crunchies cheese puffs(made by gerber) and fruit. He loves banana's, cantelope and honeydew melon. I alos give him crackers and toast with jelly or sometimes just a smidge of butter. I never thought to give him raisins though. I would be afraid of him choking on it. Has nayone had a problem with that?? Do you cut the rains in half or give them whole. What about grapes, does anyone cut them in half? I have never given him grapes either, but he would probably like that!

My little one will basically eat anything, but some of her favorites are bananas, string cheese, yogurt, anything that looks like a cookie:) teddy grahams, cereals, granola bars, all fruits, and the latest is edamame!! (soybeans in pods) just pop out the bean (don't eat the pod) and both of my girls LOVE THEM! So good for them and tastey too:) Keeps the older one busy to get the bean out herself and lasts a bit longer. Great find!

My daughter gets yeast infections from grapes too. strange!! Hannah's cutting her 1st yr molars and can chew on one side. She likes raw veggies and soft or shreaded fruits, Gerber graduates snacks, nilla wafers, whole grain saltines/crackers, and anything her 2 yr old cousin is eating! We still give her watered down juice to cut the sugar and caloric intake. She's discovered lemons so I make her catnip tea flavored with lemon. What can I say: she's definitely my daughter LOL!

I used to make a little snack party mix for her that included mini wheats, cheerios, and craisens or raisens. But everytime she has craisens, raisens, or even grapes, she breaks out in an AWFUL diaper rash! ;(

I love Gerber graduate snacks! They have Fruit and Veggie flavored wagon wheels, little veggie puffs that look like cheetos, and dried fruit perfect for little fingers. My daughter also loves crackers. Just plain ol Ritz or Saltine crackers. I also give her grahm crackers, goldfish, cheese nips, animal crackers and 100% fruit juice fruit snacks, raisins, and bananas. Oh, and those snadwich crackers like wheat crackers with peanut butter in the middle. I would stay away from the ones with PB&J because wow they have loads of sugar!!

My little guy likes raisins, diced peaches and pears, bananas, cheddar/whole wheat/graham bunnies, cheese, yogurt, cereal bars, puffs and bread with jam.

He's going through a phase right now where he won't try many new foods, so some days it seems like the foods on this list are the only things he eats!
