Healthy Toddler Snacks – Energy Balls

This recipe for Healthy Toddler Energy Balls is the most-viewed post, and my most-pinned pin.
We’re always looking for great healthy toddler snacks to bring along on our outings with our grandkids. We love to take the kids to the zoo, but WOW the prices at the snack bars there. And the choices are less than healthy. The kiddos are ages 2 and 3, and are at the stage where they only eat tiny portions. When we feed them something, we want it to be full of good nutrition. So when I found this recipe for No-Bake Energy Balls, I thought I’d give them a try.
How to Make Energy Balls
They are simple – only seven ingredients. I had most of them already on hand. No cooking or baking needed. Just mix, roll into balls, and refrigerate. Easy! But they are healthy snacks for little hands.
Taste-tested and approved by a three-year-old boy.
This recipe is adapted from Smashed Peas and Carrots. I actually made most of the balls about the size of a marble, for little toddler hands. And I made a few larger ones for me. I like healthy snacks too. Did I mention that these are delicious? After sitting in the fridge for two days, I think they taste even better.
