Lunch today is a kid favorite: hummus with crackers and veggies. I also threw in some tropical trail mix with: almonds, banana chips, dried pineapple, dried cherries, dried papaya, mini dark chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. Without the white chocolate chips, this lunch would be completely vegan.
The kiddos just love a snacky lunch with lots of little nibbly things. The snacky lunch should have good variety and color, so it’s fun to eat. This lunch has slices of swiss and sharp cheddar cheese served with some Wheat Thins and edamame. For fruit, I packed chunks of pear and apple, and a few dried apricots. I also threw in a little baby carrot and a couple of Fig Newmans. And, yep, that’s a big marshmallow for a treat, again. I’m not sure what to do with the big bag of marshmallows left over from the Epic LEGO Cake Project.
I decided to do a small bites lunch today with lots of little nibblies. The apple slices have sunflower seed butter and raisins sandwiched between them. I dipped the apple slices in some lemon water to prevent them from browning. The assortment of fruits and veggies includes: carrots, grape tomatoes, a medjool date, mango chunks and a satsuma. There’s also a little serving of plain yogurt with honey. The treat is a couple of cocoa Somersaults. This lunch was on the light side, as evidenced by the amount of popcorn and assorted snacks consumed by the kiddos after school.
