My four year old has gone through phases of what she'll snack on and what she doesn't. One thing I have found important is to make sure your child understands while fruit is healthy - it is also to be considered a sweet treat (no dessert if fruit was served in the meal).
- Strawberries - Pineapple (not as often as when she was little) - Banana (she's very picky if she sees they are too ripe, have spots, etc.) - Grapes (green are the favorite, she's always afraid red ones aren't seedless) - Oranges/tangerines (she also really likes packaged mandarins but these tend to be too sugary)
And kind of off topic, but my daughter LOVES salad greens and even snacks on cilantro leaves when we pick them from our garden.
