SNACKS!

Posted by on Sep. 12, 2013 at 10:19 AM

I'm going grocery shopping today. I need ideas for the kids snacks for school.

I've been giving them granola/protien bars or cheez-its or applesauce. I'd like to go healthier and fresher.

Here's what I don't want:

-Something that has to be REALLY cold (every store I've been to since school started are out of ice packs and my ice packs are too big for their lunch boxes. They do have lunch boxes so it can be kept a little cold.)

- I'd rather not give something that needs a spoon/fork very often.

- Nothing strawberry (flavored or with real strawberries) can enter one of my son's class rooms because of a strawberry allergy (I guess they're afraid kids will share snack or something, I don't know, lol).

mine eats apples. every single day, apples. sometimes he won't eat anything else for snack. no crackers, no oranges. no applesauce, just apples. I don't cut them for him, he just gets it out of the fridge, runs it under the water, and starts taking bites. Easiest snack ever, if you think yours would eat them

Something that a favorite in this house is grape nuts.

No one has mentioned no peanuts/peanut butter/nuts so, sure! I'll check twice before I make them,

I'd have to cut and peel. Which would be fine...if they didn't turn brown, lol.

String cheese is my kids' favorite. And clementines, because they are so easy to peel and have no seeds.

I like my fruits and vegetables REALLY cold, lol. I can try and see if they'll eat it on the warm-ish side.

My oldest LOVES green pepper with ranch, but I can't keep the ranch cold enough until I find ice packs.
