It’s forever my goal to somewhat “fill in the blanks” with our snacks and seize opportunity to sneak in extra nutrients we may miss at mealtime.

Snacks for us are typically more on the casual side, and fall into a more intuitive eating sort of routine. Some days we’re positively snack happy while others merit one substantial snack sesh that’s more of an unofficial pre-dinner meal. Sometimes we go so overboard when 5pm hits that our pre-dinner nosh turns into dinner itself!

Often if there’s a missing component from our standard breakfast-lunch-dinner routine I’ll try to make it up within a balanced snack. It’s always a great opportunity to sneak in some much needed lean protein (chickpea hummus and greek yogurt, I’m looking at you!), fresh fruit, or veggies.

We try to keep the focus on whole foods when possible (kettle corn counts as a whole food, right?) and serving up snack trays makes things fun and delicious!

Some velvety hummus here…. crisp veggies there… and a sprinkling of carbs for good measure make for the ultimate snack plate. I like to top my hummus with a simplified version of my go-to bruschetta topping, making a quick and easy pre-dinner snack feel like a fancy Oscar party appetizer.

Of course that adorable little hand above belongs to my now two and a half year old chickpea who is also allllll about the snack plates!

Though let’s be entirely transparent about just how picky toddlers can be…

Along with the obsession with mandatory food spacing, there’s some sort of prehistoric hardwiring that flips a switch, causing a squishy baby that eats anything in sight to turn into a sassy 2 year old with more food rules than Michael Pollan.

(I love you Michael!!!)

This newfound pickiness is actually a defense mechanism meant to keep little cave babies from wandering over to a poisonous berry bush and chowing down, but these days it translates into a power struggle at mealtime.

Enter this momma’s lifesaver: deconstructed eats.

Deconstructed Toddler Snack Plate with Hummus + Veggies

:: pin it for later ::

Though she lets me heavy hand everything from pesto to curry seasoning, my opinionated toddler insists that I keep her eats as simple as possible. While prepping our meals and snacks, I simply deconstruct each element and space them out on her little school bus plate.

Suddenly my offerings are deemed “soooooo nummy, momma!” and I can focus on the real fun: stuffing my own face!

Turning a pre-dinner snack into an unofficial meal also gives us a chance to pack in some extra nutrients that may have gotten snubbed during other meals of the day. AKA this is my chance to throw yet another combo of protein, fruit, and veggies at my toddler in hopes a few healthy eats make their way into her face. More often than not this is a total win, so when a certain someone decides dinner shall consist of nothing more than garlic rolls and pasta, I can rest assured that snack-time picked up the slack.

Though when all else fails, we eat chocolate chip pancakes and popcorn and call it a day.

  • I’m loving all of the toppings for Sabra hummus floating around the web this week. You can never go wrong with bruschetta!

    • Me too! Their hummus is good with pretty much everything under the sun! <3

  • What a delicious way to liven up store bought hummus. Looks wonderful!

  • I love how you dressed up the hummus. It’s a staple here…I have one kid who brings it for lunch all the time. We’ll definitely try this! 🙂

    • Thanks Michelle! Hope y’all loooove it!

  • I like the toppings on the hummus. We go through hummus phases in our house and I think it is time for another phase.

    • Love it! Another phase is totally in order! <3

  • What a lovely appetizer! So colorful and full of flavor, too!

    • Thanks Sheila! We can’t stop making it!

  • We love hummus but do not buy it so often. This looks incredible!

  • I am so obsessed with hummus, this looks amazing! My 3 year old is the same way! PICKY!!!

  • I am so there with you with my 2.5 year old son. Picky, picky, picky! I NEED to get those school bus plates to see if it helps! And he LOVES hummus too, so we have to have it in the fridge at all times!

  • So healthy…this would be great for an after school snack. Great choices in here!

  • Hummus is one of my favorite snacks and I LOVE what you did with this one! It looks amazing!

  • Andi @ The Weary Chef

    I can devour that bowl of hummus all by myself! Looks yummy!

  • Sabrina

    I love hummus! It reminds me of my childhood!

  • Those trays are beautiful! Love the little hands and the recipe looks amazing!

  • LOL at “more food rules that Michael Pollan!”

    My toddler literally eats 2 things regularly: hummus and guac. Go figure those were my pregnancy and postpartum staples. At least they’re sort of healthy?

    I wonder if I could sneak in this bruschetta topping to his normal classic version? If not, I know what will happen…he’ll toss it to the dog! 😉

    • Hummus and guac are staples for the chickpea too and SO healthy – I vote we should be proud of that 🙂 One thing I have really awesome luck with hummus is either blending the veggies into it (I have a pea hummus and pea pesto on the blog that were created to trick the little one haha) or taking the adult version and not offering her a bite at all. I kind of hoard it with the hubs and hope she will ask for some. Sometimes it works and she actually tries and loves something new! Other times she’s like – nice try mom go get me some black beans and guac!

  • Call me crazy but veggies and hummus has not sound appetizing at ALL while I’ve been pregnant. I hope I revert back to my normal self pronto when baby girl evacuates!

    • Literally all I wanted postpartum was fruit, veggies, hummus, and bagels. You’ll get it back 🙂

  • Oh man this looks so good. My mouth is watering right now. I love all of the colors and the combo of toppings. Simply beautiful!
