and I'm sure it's all been done before, but I have 'flu, am feeling sorry for myself, and need to make a shopping list. Please tell me what to get!
Ds has a good breakfast before Kindergarten, and is home again for lunch at 12.30. He needs a small snack to eat while there.
So far, he has had (and enjoyed): - small jogurt - mini mozarella balls - cubed cheese - mini salamis or coctail sausages - cherry tomatoes - cucumber slices - various fruit, including raisins etc when no seasonal fresh stuff available
He has a toast or bread-based breakfast and usually a sandwhich or wrap for lunch, so I would rather not give him anything bread-like as a snack.
Ds will actually eat almost anything, but peer pressure means that some of the stuff that he happily eats at home (olives, sundried tomatoes) he won't eat at Kindergarten.
The snack-time is a very important part of his time there, he really enjoys sitting at the table with the other kids and eating. But he's been getting a bit fed up with always having basically the same stuff.
They are not allowed any cakes, biscuits, sweets etc. Is there something obvious I am missing? Really, any ideas at all would be great.
There are lots of delicious snack bars that have no sugar in them at all. Try the Nakd range; they are made of dried fruit and nuts with nothing added. What about sushi (very easy to make) or a rice ball. Applesauce
Mine love rice cakes, especially the Organix ones. And Lyme Regis do lovely oat and fruit bars which have zero added sugar. And yogurt tubes are fun. If you are feeling rich my DS loves Innocent fruit tubes which are just tubes of pureed fruit, clear spring do little pots of these too.
