My kids are little and seem to like the same kinds of snacks year round:
Graham crackers and goldfish are a favorite, but I parcel those out because they get expensive.
Hummus and bread
Toast with honey
Apple slices with honey or peanut butter
Greek yogurt
Cheese sticks
Fresh or dried fruit
Popcorn
Trail mix
Smoothies
And occasionally ice cream or popsicles

I find that having plenty of cold water available that they can get themselves is the key to managing the heat for my kids.

Fruit.....all the time : We also eat out of our gardens a lot, salads, green beans, peas, cucumbers, and now the melons are starting. Just pair some fruit, garden veggies, and crackers and it's good enough for lunch!

Plus we make a lot of cookies around here. Right now, it's monster cookies because I'm nursing so it's a good excuse!

Yeah, we always have fruit, veggies and dip, fruit snacks, we make a lot of cookies too (they are so expensive to buy), crackers and cheese, granola bars, yogurt.

I don't buy a lot of popsicles because I despise them. They melt and get the kids all sticky. LOL

My kids eat waffles (homemade then we freeze them) and cereal like they are snack food too. Ohh and PB&J sandwiches on slider buns.
