Day 2: Goldfish, plum, egg noodles with cottage cheese, hard-boiled egg, cocoa almonds
Day 3: Yogurt raisins, blueberry applesauce, pasta salad (with grilled chicken, feta, tomatoes and olives), celery with peanut butter
Day 4: Cocoa almonds, honeydew, ham and meunster sandwich, carrots and ranch
Day 5: The school orders Domino's pizza and kids can buy by the slice. Last week, Elliott let me know in no uncertain terms that "everyone except for me" got to have pizza. So I sent some money and a snack container of fruit and veggies to round out her lunch. Hopefully that scores some points for me.
We kept snacks simple so I didn't bother to document. Each day, I sent either a granola bar or yogurt for snack. I figured that her snack should be quite light so she'll eat more of her lunch--so far this is working.
It's so funny, because some friends and I were talking last night about how we didn't get snacks as kids--and now it's some sort of obligation. Snacks, snacks, snacks. Two of the friends who shared in the conversation are a couple from the Caribbean (the husband from Antigua, the wife from Grenada) and they went on to share not only their lack of snacks as children, but also the unique upbringing of Islanders. And I've thought about it all day long... our kids are so soft! Perhaps to their benefit and not to their detriment. I guess we'll see as time goes by.
