List Rules No junk food. That includes anything like 'lunchables' or chips.

It can be hard to get your kid to snack on something that's good for them, but there are plenty of simple foods that most kids will eat. This is a list of healthy snacks for kids that you don't need to buy in single wrapped packages and that they usually won't turn down. Vote for your favorite go-to snack, and add anything you think is missing.
