i do have biscuits but they must eat fruit before they get one. i have got cheesy biscuits to.

But u could maybe have carrot sticks or cucumber!!

Bread sticks i have found go down rather well aswell.

All mine seem to be really good fruit eayers which is good

Hope this helps

I have always done some different fruits that they may not be used to seeing as well as apples, bananas and grapes. Not always successfully didn't like lychees or plums:D. They do tend to like raisins and dried fruits.

mini pitta bread, toast, croissant, bagel, cheese scone, fruit scone, plain scone, I used to try to vary things.

bread sticks or veg sticks with dip, cheese & crackers, rice cakes, fruit smoothie ice lollies. I also quite often give homemade muffins, cakes, cereal bars all with "hidden" goodies in.

Breadsticks (although you have to watch out as some makes do have high salt content) dried fruits and fruit mainly.

Houmous and dips always go down well, pancakes, cheese and apple are lovely together. I don't give too much dried fruit due to high sugar content and the fact they stick to their teeth.

Homemade cakes/pancakes/scones- this way you include a baking activity and snack!!!

Yogurts & shortbread go nice together. Muller rice pots, pots of custard make a nice change. Cheese and pineapple or grapes go down well. I have a fussy eater so I give him those mini sausages. A vegetable platter with a dip that they like.

Toast, bagels, a plate of sandwiches or pitta pockets, cheese and crackers.
