Simple Snack to Keep Your Toddler Entertained

I am very proud to announce that I came up with this nifty looking snack all on my own!

Impressive, I know!

This simple and easy snack completely freaked my son out at first and he fully examined it before deciding it was safe to eat. After the initial  shock of my rare creativity wore off, he dove right in and spent 20 minutes enjoying this snack… that’s like an hour of mommy time so I will take it!


Slice up an apple

Throw a glob of peanut butter on a plate

Stick the apple slices in the peanut butter

Serve to suspicious toddler

Final Step (the most important step of all)

*QUICK! Run to the bathroom and pee alone before your toddler notices!*

  1. We eat apple slices with peanut butter or almond butter all the time, but I never thought of presenting them like that! Cute idea!

  2. We love to do peanut butter and apples here – sometimes to get them really excited, I might sprinkle some cashews or jimmies on it to “dress it up”.

  3. Amazing how a simple change can make them interested in eating it. My son hates many vegies, but I cut a bunch up one day and had him make his own pizza-he chose almost all of them then ate the entire pizza!

  4. Love it! However, my three year old would carefully pull the apple slices out and lick off every speck of PB and then ask me for more “plain pb”. 🙂

  5. Hahah, pee alone… it’s nice when that happens, isn’t it? I think my son would love this! I have apples and peanut butter right now, so I’m thinking this will be his snack before nap time!


  6. Yes I agree run to the bathroom before they notice your gone .Peeing without an audience is rare even for us grandma’s
    This is good but my grandson will not eat an apple if the skins are not totally peeled off them. That way I can fib and say yes this is a yellow skinned apple LOL

  7. This is a great idea. I am going to use for my 4 year old son. His favorite fruit is apples so it works out great.
