    Lovely ideas and recipes! My mom and I love all of the suggestions for toddlers the most, seeing as I have a little brother who is exactly 16 years younger than I, I love getting to make him new snacks and meals all the time!

    I’m surprised you have popcorn on this list. I would caution giving popcorn as a snack for toddlers since they are a serious choking hazard. Many guidelines recommend waiting until a child is 3 or 4 yrs. old. With so many tragic stories out there of toddlers dying from choking on popcorn, why risk it? A great alternative are the puffed snacks that dissolve easily in your mouth.
