Finding snacks for your toddler that are both tasty and high in fiber can be tricky, especially if you have a picky eater at home. While your toddler may want to reach for the fruit snacks instead of the actual fruit, we’ve compiled a list of snacks we think they’ll enjoy just as much!
One of the first solid foods you’ll feed your bundle of joy are bananas and for good reason; they’re easy to chew, have a sweet flavor, and are considered healthy. Bananas are also a good source of fiber, clocking in at around 3 grams for every medium sized banana.
Oatmeal is another great food for toddlers for similar reasons to bananas. Easily digestible, this popular breakfast food is another source of fiber packing 4g per cup of cooked oatmeal. Not to mention, you can top oatmeal with Natierra® Freeze-Dried Fruits for even more fiber!
Apple slices are a great way to incorporate more fiber into your toddler’s diet. If your little one normally strays away from traditional apples, Natierra® offers Organic Freeze-Dried Apples that will surly win them over! Not to mention, each bag of Natierra® Organic Freeze-Dried Apples has 7g of fiber.
4. Whole Grains
Whole grains are in many different products which make it easier to sneak into your kid’s diet. You could use whole grain bread for sandwiches, or whole grain pasta for their favorite mac and cheese recipe. Regardless, they won’t notice that they’re eating healthy food which will make your life a little easier. Parents do need an occasional trick up their sleeve after all.
