Hi Moms!
My son is 17 months old, and I just wonder what everyone thinks are good ideas for the snack between dinner and bedtime.

Graham crackers and milk make a nice snack. I agree with Sarah as well. Yogurt and fruit make excellent snacks too.

Cheese and crackers or cheese toast, veggies and dip, cheerios or shreddies. I personally would go easy on anything sugary before bed.

My daughter likes to sit with us when the family eat their dinner so she gets a small amount of what we are eatting. Usually she just investigates it and pushes it around her plate. If she has eatten badly and I want her to have something to eat before bed then she gets either malt loaf or toast. I found giving her fruit at bedtime gave her a tummy ache. If we are eatting away from home my daughter has breadsticks and raisins or dried fruit sticks.

Our little guy, 16mths, is usally in bed 20-30mins after dinner, hehehe so no need for a snack. But on the odd occassion I'll give him some fresh fruit chopped up that I have in the fridge pre-cut (usual afternoon tea snack).

Thanks everyone. I often do give my son the snacks currently suggested (except for peanut butter-he's only 17 months old). I love the input!

My son is 4 and usually eats something with peanut butter and my 13 month old gets some variation of fruit and yogurt.

My daughter tends to eat a lot of yogurt throughout the day so cheese or cheerios is usually our choice.

Agree with Sarah. If my kids need to eat between dinner and bed it is a piece of fruit or yoghurt.
