Hey J.! My daughter loves fruit, you can send her with cut up apples (a little lemon juice makes them not brown), bananas, peaches etc. canned (in fruit juice) or fresh makes a great snack. I also give my daughter raisins or fruit snacks (we only buy organic). She loves graham crackers with peanut butter which is a great treat too!

Banana bread or home made cookies or muffins are wonderful snacks too. I make all of ours from scratch so I know they have little sugar.

Cut up meat and cheese, cheese sticks, cereal, granola bars, 1/2 a pb&j sandwich (if there are no pb allergies), the cheese crackers you can buy, graham crackers, yogurt. I hope this helps a little.

I saw a cute spread in a parent magazine with different varieties of make-your-own trail mix. Try a variety of cereals, dried fruits, m&ms/chocolate chips, nuts, crackers, etc. Have your daughter help measure and mix as a little project for the week. My son is allergic to nuts so we have tried a few other things and it is fun for them to make...and eat!

Hi J., I have 5 little ones and each child is different. But one thing I have found to be true when I work in my kids classroom. What ever snack the teacher has in reserves is always cooler than the snack I send them (even if it is the same thing) First check you teacher's list of approved snacks. Someone in your child's class my have a serious allergy to peanut butter. You can never go wrong with fruit and veggies. Most teacher's won't allow anything that will make the floor sticky (juices, milk, yogurt but check with the teacher). All in all you have the right idea with the variety-what your child likes-just mix it up that way they won't know what to expect. Crackers (kids in my son's class loved cheeze its), pretzels, flavored bread like the previous mom suggested. Cheese and Meat cubes. popcorn. Dry Cereal.

Bananas! Grapes, apples, Cheerios, NutriGrain Bars. Good for you for taking a healthy approach to your childs snacks.

Hi J.,

You have some great suggestions but one I don't see is Goldfish crackers. You might want to check with your child's teacher first, though. When my kids wer kinders the teachers had each student on a rotating list of who was to bring snack for the whole class and when. That way everyone has the same thing and there is no trading snacks or jelousy over someone having what someone else has.
