So Cynthia has half days for the first month, and doesn’t need to take a lunch. She does need to take a snack. We were advised to send ‘one item to eat and one item to drink’. This is good and all, but what on earth do I send, that I can be sure will be what she needs at snacktime? She has yogurt and granola for breakfast, so that means what she really needs at snack is vegetables, but veggies are not filling. So I went the ‘overdoing it’ route, and sent in a couple bites of everything.
We have here a… roughly 3×5″ box. I didn’t measure before it left this morning. It contains a 2×3″ (I guess?) turkey sandwich, a small tomato cut to fit the box, a slice of cheddar cut into a heart, and a few sugar snap peas. She can eat what she likes, I’ll see what comes home.
It worked pretty well. I have cheddar flowers and hearts in a box in the fridge, and watermelon hearts and flowers in another box. I don’t know how the watermelon will work, it might get drippy. The sandwich is the size of a piece of bread folded in half, I squared it and ate the curves. It was fun, this morning’s prep was fast (I did the hearts and flowers over the weekend), and Cynthia was thrilled.
Now I just have to figure out what to feed her after school!
