Something I do for me is portion out dried fruit and nuts into one serving pkg. which I put into snack size ziploc bags. Some I put half fruit and half nuts. I jumble the pkg. up and store in a counter canister (or a cookie jar).

I have also created my own trail mix. recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=2466148
It's easy to switch out ingredients, If you follow that recipe, don't use the Trader Joes freeze dried bananas, they get leathery. I'd recommend using banana chips instead. I package the trail mix up in one ounce pkg. also.

They will probably want chips. Decide what you feel is healthy. I prefer baked to fried, and usually make my own chips from xtreme tortillas spread with roasted garlic, cut into wedges, and then toasted in the oven. Great with salsa, chili, hummus.

And you really can't beat a bowl of fruit on the counter stocked with bananas, apples, cuties or tangerines (easy to peel).

And your girls are old enough to help you choose and portion package things.

One of my favorite mom's on my Eat to Defeat team keeps bowls of prepped fresh fruit and veggies on a bowl in the refrigerator at a reachable height for her young daughter, and she actually uses that when she wants a snack. I think that's the coolest thing!!

Welcome to the team and good luck. Remember set small goals and take it one day at a time. My nephew and his wife make grilled cheese, mac and cheese, turkey sandwich, etc. They try all new things with their 4 year old sun and he eats good. Some days better than other days. I'll see if they have any other ideas.
