I saw this in a news letter I get. My daugher loves it. Take a plastic ice cube tray and put different snacks in each section. I do a couple blue berries. strawberries, some cereal, cheese, crackers & edemame. She loves trying a littel out of each section.
Try cottage cheese mixed with crushed fruit. I did this with strawberries and my 1yr old loved it. (try blueberries or peaches) I have a mini chopper so I just tossed it all in and whipped it for a bit until mixed. Try some spices too. . nutmeg or cinammon? Also, shredded cheese is quick, healthy and she can eat on her own. Have also done string cheese but I cut it half, lengthwise and then slice it into bite size pieces. Little 4oz yogurts are good too.

Mac & cheese was a favorite for our family, so I'd add peas or carrots to that. It was easy to keep frozen veggies on hand. That's not really a snack though....Frozen or chilled grapes are yummy ;p Depending on her ability a sandwich made with graham cracker 'bread' peanut butter and sliced strawberries for filling. There are so many options if strawberries get old.

I highly reccomend getting the book The Sneaky Chef by Missy chase Lapine. Its got so many ways to trick your toddler into eating healthy stuff without them knowing it. Since its summertime, here is a teasty, healthy way of giving her a popsicle.
Frozen Strawberry applesauce:
1 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup strawberry juice (2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries, 2 cups water, 1 cup sugar) Bring water berries, and sugar to boil in a medium pot, simmer on low 10 minutes, mashng berries occasionally. Strain the juice from the pulp.
In mixing bowl, combine juice with applesauce, pour into posicle containers and freeze until firm.
You can store the strawberry juice up to 3 days in the refridgerator. Hope this helps!!
