  • Snack & Lunch Ideas

    I have a rotating menu, but still am looking to break things up a bit and add a few new snack and lunch meals to my menu! Anyone have any kid-favorite ideas?
    Right now, the favorite snack for us is chocolate-dipped frozen bananas rolled in peanuts. Another kid favorite is real strawberry lemonade (buy lemonade or use the powder mix; then add some frozen sliced strawberries! YUM!)
    What are some of your favorites?

          i buy yogurt in the individual containers for my own kids - i get yoplait strawberry flavor and put them in the freezer. when they're frozen solid, they're reeeally good like ice cream but not messy. it takes awhile to eat them too.

          jello with mixed fruit is good and cheap.
