Hey guys! It’s Libby from @babytoddlerfoods on Instagram here! I’m a mum to 2 young girls who LOVE using their Zip & Zoe Bags and sandwich bags so I’ve made a list of some of our favourite snacks to take out and about with us! 

Nut free energy balls

  • 200g organic medjool dates
  • 30g raisins
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil 
  • 1 1/2tsp cinnamon (I like them really cinnamon-y!!) 
  • Porridge oats 

De stone your dates and put them in a bowl, cover them with boiling water for a few minutes 
Drain the dates and whizz them with the raisins in your food processor 
Add the porridge oats a tablespoon at a time with the cinnamon, until you reach the consistency you desire (it can depend on how much water your dates soak up and how chewy you like your bites! So no proper measurements here) 
Roll into teaspoon amount balls 
Place in a airtight container – separating the layers with baking paper and store in the fridge 

Trail mix

Really easy snack that can contain marshmallows and chocolate chips for a treat if you like!

Just mix some whole grain o cereal with a few mini marshmallows, dried fruit, dark choc chips and off you go! Anything works,  any dried fruit, seeds etc. Perfect little snack! 


The easiest snack in the world is the humble banana! Bananas are high in potassium and contain good levels of protein and dietary fibre.

They’re also perfect for leaving your kids a little message on! 


Have fun out in the fresh air now the weather is looking up! And don’t forget to pack some snacks!
