    Question What frugal snacks do you feed your kids?

    Popcorn is top on our list, along with a couple of other snacks such as carrots, apples and bread sticks. Most of their snacks are fruit related that I purchase in season.

    My kids' favorite snacks are carrots, homemade muffins, apples, grapes, bananas, applesauce, yogurt, or popcorn. They also eat a lot of toast...

    Of course, my kids love the junk food, but I dont buy it often...sometimes for their school lunches.
    They love to eat strawberries, grapes, apples, chex mix and some others.

    Well, our favorites are like many already listed. Popcorn, graham crackers, toast, apples or bananas (or something in season) and they really like it if I make cookies and muffins.

    Fruit, homemade yeast bread with butter, homemade yogurt, homemade quickbread or muffins. They do not often snack - it's usually just three meals a day.
