My kids have milk break everyday at school

I have to send a snack of them, just them so it can be homemade, it is suppose to be healthly, what does everyelse send. I have been sending chocolate chip cookies, one week, granola bars on another week, brownies, poptarts, and I am making zuchinni bread. What does everyone else send with their kids?

  • my son doesn't have a snack break, but i send a snack in with his 1/2 sandwich for lunch. i send little box of raisins, some cheese cubes, some pretzels, animal crackers, cut up fruit or cherry tomatoes. it has to be something he can open so it has to be something i can put in a ziplock baggie. if he could open yogurt or applesauce cups i would send that, but he can't do that by himself yet lol. maybe next year

  • None of those options are healthy. I couldn't imagine feeding my children cookies, brownies, and pop tarts every day to school. Raisins, wheat crackers, fruit, string cheese, nuts, peanut butter crackers, etc.

  • My son is older, but he needs to eat every three hours, so he gets a snack at school. His snacks need to be high protein, so I typically send him in stuff like pistachios, sunflower seeds, sunbutter & crackers, hummus & pretzels or high protein brownies (made w/garbanzo or black beans & low GI).

  • We'd send in carrots, dry cereal, crackers, pretzels...this was in Kindergarten only.

  • Water break, I understand. Why milk?

  • The parent sends milk money, but the child can buy milk or water or juice, nothing and just save the money for candy later in the week( i hate that last one!)

  • My son likes to have oatmeal cookies and have them everyday...he is picky so this is all he will eat with his milk break so it works for me
