Default Snacks

I am in need of snack ideas. After running a dc for 5 years I seem to be running out of ideas or have forgotten what I at one time gave the children. Any ideas of what you feed your children would be great. We do the basic yogurt, granola bars, gold fish, fruits.....other ideas would be wonderful!

I won't be much help b/c I think I do the basic too but I'll give you the things I usually give for snack:

Apples and sunbutter (sunflower seed butter)
wheat thin crackers and something like a cheese stick or some slices of turkey
sunbutter and cracker sandwiches
1/2 bananna and a yogurt
1/2 cheese sandwich and grapes
carrots and cucumber with dip
apples or any fruit with yogurt dip (make it really easy with yogurt, a few tablespoons of nut butter and a bit of honey)
pretzels with raisins

Those are our usual snacks around here.
