    Fruit is #1 for us. DD also likes the dried fruit in individual packets that you can buy in bulk at Costco. Those are nice for on the go snacks.
    She loves crackers and cheese.
    Cheerios or chex
    Fruit roll-ups
    Yogurt melts (she loves these but won't eat regular yogurt)
    Birdseed (sunflower seeds)

    I tend to do the same things as PP and OP. One thing I figured out though is that sometimes if you make it more interesting DD eats more. I made a snack that looked like Ernie from Sesame Street out of oranges, raisins, marshmallows and a little fruit strip. Super easy and she was so impressed, although she said it looked like Dora. Either way.

    I get a lot of fun ideas about food and snacks now from Pinterest.

    Fruits are a big staple in our house, as is yogurt. Goldfish are another favorite. Pretzels.
