    It depends on how old the toddler is. Most of the snacks mentioned are fine as long as your child is not a gagger or a choker. My granddaughters love cheese (low fat), fruit, and yogurt, too, though they make a huge mess with the tubed stuff and it is more expensive. I cut up seedless grapes into halvesor quarters for safety. They like not as healthy snacks like Goldfish, too. Cereal is a good snack once in awhile. They like it dry with a cup of milk on the side.

    Cut up strawberries, apples, bananas, any kind of fruit they like. I'd be careful with citrus because they are sometimes kind of stringy (gagging again).

    They also like peanut butter and are fond of peanut butter toast. They only eat whole wheat bread so that's a good snack, too.

    Veggies dipped in ranch is good and my daughter makes a "rainbow" dip mixing ranch with a tiny bit of Italian that all three girls love.

    Low fat lunch meat like ham slices are good with the cheese and crackers. We use small cookie cutters and cut the meat and cheese into fun shapes.

    Fruit snacks made with real juice are good for traveling.

    A variety is the best thing so they don't get bored. I baby sit my granddaughters and I overdid the Goldfish.

    Anything without too much refined sugar in it, and nothing too hard to chew. Organic fruit cut into slices, like apples, oranges, bananas, and also low-fat cheese and sandwiches on wheat bread.

    When I was a toddler, I really liked apple slices and peanut butter, and also peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
