I forgot to post on Wednesday, sorry! I had a few work engagements last week & got a little distracted, but I did remember to take the pictures, so here is Wednesday’s post, via Monday!
One thing that took me a little while to figure out, was how to pack lunch for my son when he had MDO (Mother’s Day Out). It took some trial & error, but eventually I figured it out. You just feed him like you do at home. I feel like it has also gotten easier as he has gotten a little older. Sometimes he gets left over pasta from the night before & sometimes he gets a more traditional school lunch. Here’s what he took last week:
1 Slice of Rudi’s Honey Wheat bread sliced in half with Mara Narth Sunbutter (Sunflower seed Butter) & Cascadian Farms Organic Strawberry Jelly, Kind Vanilla Blueberry Bar (which has become one of his new favorite things), Lundberg Seaweed & Sesame Rice Chips (these are soooooo good!), & 4 washed, sliced strawberries. I always give him Organic Apple Juice cut with water. I know I have scored when his lunch box comes home empty…this lunch was for sure a winner.
For snacks he has discovered what he refers to as “crackers”. A cracker to him is a Lundberg Rice Cake with sunbutter & today a small drizzle of honey. I have noticed with him, like me, he really thrives on a varied diet. He will rebel if he gets the same thing over & over. So I try to continually introduce new foods, textures. & flavors. Plus i really don’t want him to become a picky eater.
