It’s back-to-school time! Hopefully you love the snacks that your child’s preschool serves–ones that are healthy while being foods your kids will actually eat. If not, you are in the right place!

I am a registered dietitian nutritionist, mom of two little kids, chef, and author of Clean Eating for Busy Families. I created this preschool snack menu for my toddler’s previous daycare. These are all foods that parents can purchase pre-made from the grocery store and simply bring in for the childcare workers to plate and serve. No kitchen required. Even though we have moved away, the school and parents still love using this snack menu!
