So to keep things quick and easy, I always make sure to have the staple items in our refrigerator and pantry, to create a snack that I can whip up in no time for the kiddos. Over time, I’ve compiled a list of ingredients and snack foods that work together really well, that can be used to create a lot of different snack recipes.

So if you’ve found yourself in a “rut,” and need a few new snack ideas for your toddlers, you may want to save my free printable, and take it with you, the next time that you head to the grocery store.
