With the first week under my belt, I was feeling a bit more confident about putting together a decent morning snack and lunch for Kale. I did some research (i.e. spending way too much time drooling over all the amazing bento-dedicated websites and blogs out there), and decided to try adding a couple new things (like an english muffin with goat cheese and strawberries). It's hard to say whether the new additions were a success or not because not eating something isn't exactly an indication of not liking it when it comes to Kale. One day he won't touch it and then next he's all over it. The good part is, whatever he doesn't eat comes home with us and either: (1) I eat the leftovers on the drive home, or (2) I put it in the fridge and use it for a snack after his nap.
The favourites this week were definitely the pinwheels with turkey, hummus and spinach wrapped in a tortilla, and the chocolate chips I added to his pretzels and goldfish (we use these yummy chocolate chips from Enjoy Life which are made in a dedicated nut-free facility, since one of the kids in his class has a severe nut allergy).
What's your kids favourite snack or lunch item? I'd love any idea's!
