Melissa has some great posts for Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper food ideas for children. I'd like to add a big one for me:

Let's compile a list of snack foods for our children so we can refer here for a quick idea!

I forget from your previous questions how old your child/ren is/are. But when did you feel they could eat a cherry without swallowing the pit? It's so messy for me to cut the seed out with a knife or when I use my fingers they get dyed red - annoying. :) My daughter's (2 1/2) usually pretty good about not swallowing things, but cherries for some reason make me nervous. Maybe I'm being overly cautious...just wondering an age you've experienced this so I know if I should just try it with her. :)

Our kids always like snacks that look like something:

  • Ants on a Log (peanut butter on celery with raisins on top)
  • Ladybugs (peanut butter on the back of half a red apple with raisins as the spots and pretzels as the legs and antenna)
  • Teds on sleds (pudding/yogurt with teddy grahams and crushed Cheerios)
  • Fruit and/or cheese Kabobs (assuming they won't use the stick as a weapon!)
  • Yogurt Pops (we freeze those tubes of yogurt)

One kids' cookbook (and craftbook!) that they love is the Cheerios Cookbook.

Obviously they don't have peanut allergies but if they did, we could probably find a good substitute. And they are the age now (9 and 6) where they can help make them!

Mine all love berries, but they're expensive and don't keep very long. Between them they enjoy a variety of fruits but I often have to give them each something different which can be annoying.

Home-made pop-corn - not the stuff for microwaving since that's already got added salt. That way I get to decide how much salt it should have.

In the summer home-made ice-lollies, these are just frozen fruit juice, but the kids love them, even the daughter who won't usually drink anything but water.

Buttered malt loaf

Bread sticks (even aged nine my eldest still likes these)

Dried apricots, prunes or mango are popular in our house.

Raisins mixed with goldfish crackers. It's a nice contrast of textures and tastes.

This is one of our daughter's favorites. We use the whole grain goldfish crackers.

Bologna with cream cheese rolled up and stuck with a toothpick. You can substitute sliced turkey. My mom used to make this for me. Favorite snack of all time.
