Tots are notorious for always wanting a snack, at home, on-the-go, and everywhere in between. And since little ones are inclined to eat small amounts often, making sure you have plenty of healthy foods on hand tucked into your diaper bag is an invaluable tip for avoiding sugar crashes and hunger pangs. Here are several ideas to keep your snack rotation fresh and interesting!
