Perfect Snacks For Toddlers 3 & Under!

Since it’s only been the twins and I during the week, we’ve been doing groceries trips together. Usually twice a month I will have to refill the snacks in the pantry. So here’s some great snacks for toddlers 3 and under, plus a question I tend to get a lot:

How do I shop with twins?

Now it depends if I’m going by myself or if my husband and I go. If this trip is the twins and I alone, I will use my Bebefit Baby Carrier to carry King. King usually more upset if I am not holding him, and Queen is my sweet laid back baby girl. I will mention that Costco has the two babies seat and I will forever love that. Some places will have it where they both can sit by each other.

I try not to spend more than 30 minutes if I’m just getting the essentials. If I know I would need more items I will do grocery store pick up.


This Triple Berry Blend is perfect for smoothies, or simply a great snack before lunch or dinner. It’s kept in the freezer and had been pretty good for my teething one year old twins!

What toddler can say no to Cheerios? There’s a small snack cup that you could buy so that you can put dry cereal for your child. Since King and Queen have a hard time grabbing it, I would just hand it to them (hence the plastic bag.)

Applesauce is so yummy and all my children loves it. Sometimes I purchase the squeeze one, but Queen likes to squeeze them sooo hard it’s all over the place.

Gerber has these small oatmeals bowls that the twins fight over! They would literally eat the whole thing by themselves and then some more.

I mean, cantaloupe is bomb. I give them in cubes to my 3 year old daughter and for the twins I would slice them up bite size.

King and Queen don’t eat grapes because of the hazards of choking, so this is for my 3 year old. Even for her I still cut it in half.

Bananas are giving whole to my three year old and my twins bananas are cut as well as the strawberries (which can be messyyyyy.)

Like I said, the twins are teethinggg soo bad and I’m not sure if this helps but we’ve been buying it for a couple of weeks. It comes with two in one pack so it works amazing for the twin beans! Have you tried this?

**Some of these would be given to my older two boys as well for snack time at school. It will last for roughly a week and tends to cost $100.

What are some of your toddler snacks? Share them below!

Until next time,

    Love these ideas! My daughter is 3 and eats most of these. She loved the teethers when she was younger.

    Wow I love this post mama! Fruit is a definite favorite in this house too! All three kids eat it so it’s a win! We also love applesauce pouches and fruit leather strips for on the go snacking too!

    My daughter used to love those tethers! I love that you shared healthy snacks. Hats off to you for tackling the grocery store with twins! I’m about to have to take two but my husband usually joins on the weekends.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this! It’s always great to mix it up so I really appreciate your ideas. My boys eat me out of house an home as well and I’m bracing myself for the teen years. 😉
