For several years now I've tried to have a basket or bowl of some kind in my kitchen full of snacks for my kids to grab at snack times. Which has been wonderful, but it can also get expensive to buy all the pre-snack-sized snacks and they aren't always that nutritious either. I've been trying to be much more diligent with adding healthy snacks for my kids around the house since they are avid snackers too.
My snack basket usuals are various crackers, raisins, granola bars and all fruit fruit snacks. Occasionally if I have a coupon I'll get fruit cups or pudding. I alot of times I have an overflow of snacks, so I have a second basket with all the same things so I'm not making snacks and refilling it every other day.

I always have bananas and apples along with Cutie oranges and pears (if they are in season) in a bowl on my counter. Like I said, trying to promote healthy snacking. :)
What type of snacks do you have on hand for your kiddos? Maybe this gave you an idea for your own click of genius. Let me know what it is!
