Snack Ideas

I have a husband who loves to snack and because our baby girl watches her daddy's every move, she loves to snack too. Hubby often complains about me not buying enough snacks and that everything has to be cooked. It is true that I go to the store with a list for our next weeks dinners, but I just hate to buy a bunch of processed snacks that have no nutritional value whatsoever. Today I was looking at all of the wonderful blogs that I have bookmarked that I check daily and saw my friend Carrie B. had actually addressed this subject. I love cucumbers, but never really thought of them as just a peel and eat snack. I want Abbey to have good healthy snacks and her daddy really needs that in his diabetic diet too. For all of you wonderful healthy mothers out there, please give me some ideas on what you give your family to snack on (as many ideas as you are willing to share). Thank you!!!!

PS. Abbeyism - Last night after her bath Abbey went downstairs to give her daddy nite kisses. She walks into the kitchen where he is sitting at the table on the computer. He has his shorts on but no shirt because it is really hot in our house right now.

Abbey: Daddy, I give you nite suggies!

Daddy: Is it time to go to bed? OK then.

(They give each other nite kisses, then Abbey backs up)

Abbey: I see your belly.

Daddy: Yeah?

Abbey: It's purdy.

So, I have a husband with a pretty belly, who knew?

I'm afraid not. Abbey didn't care for them. Clark and I like them, but since I haven't made it to the farmer's market the past few weeks we haven't gotten any. They just aren't the same from Kroger. :)
