Kindergarten Snack Box 2: She Did It Herself

6 Sep

Today’s Snack Box was 100% designed and implemented by my almost-4-year-old!

As soon as we got home from home care after her first day of school (!!!) we headed straight to the kitchen. She helped me wash out her Planet Box and then opened the fridge and cupboard and selected the contents of tomorrow’s box. The whole thing took about 15 minutes, and it was a great opportunity to spend a little bit of quality time together after her super busy day.

Lunch Box Contents:

Hard Boiled Egg Whites – today she decided she “doesn’t like the yellow part”, so she peeled the eggs (I sliced them in half) and popped out the yolks (I ate one and shared the other one with the dogs)
Strawberries – She even cut the stems off, with my help
Baby Cucumber – again, she insists they taste better whole; these baby cucumbers have taken the place of granola bars in our household…they’re not terribly filling (but neither are grain-laden granola bars), but they really are satisfying to crunch away at when water won’t cut it!
Rice Crackers & Raisins – for a reminder as to why my mostly-Paleo kid gets rice crackers, read this post 

I have a feeling the raisins are here to stay for a while. I’m hoping to find a way to ‘sneak’ egg yolks into her diet soon. That’s my next research project :).
