  1. Grapes + String Cheese
  2. Nectarines + Goldfish Crackers
  3. Juice-Sweetened Yogurt
  4. Dried Fruit
  5. Mixed Nuts + Applesauce
  6. Trail Mix
  7. Apple Slices + Peanut Butter
  8. Pear Slices + Cheese
  9. Carrots + Hummus
  10. Wheat Thins + Pesto
  11. Cottage Cheese + Peaches
  12. Hard Boiled Eggs
  13. Ants on a Log
  14. Spinach + Ham Wraps
  15. Chips + Salsa
  16. Avocado Slices + Crackers
  17. Refried Beans + Corn Tortilla

And our House Rule:  if you’re still hungry before dinner time, grab any fruit or veggie, but nothing else until dinner!
