Monday’s snack was quick and dirty: tortilla chips and pineapple salsa (in the pink box). I also included a red heart candy because I love him.
Tuesday’s lunch/snack was: a half mini baguette, strawberry jam (in the little blue box), a hand full of grapes, blueberries, some Pirate’s Booty, a little red heart candy (in the yellow box), a square of cornbread and cubes of pork tenderloin. You’ll be happy to know he was able to eat the Pirate’s Booty with no interference from the teachers at the club house.
For Wednesday’s lunch I sent baked tofu cut into giraffe shapes, grapes, blueberries, a square of cornbread and ranch dressing and sugar snap peas.
I have to crow a little about the peas and the ranch dressing. This is one of my favorite snacks and I have offered some to Wyatt every time I ate it for years. I’m guessing that I started asking him if he wanted some when he was 2 years old. Usually he just flat out refused to try it. Very rarely he’d try it and tell me he didn’t like it. But I kept asking just in case he changed his mind. The other day he was willing to try it, which in itself was a big deal. But then…
He ate it all!
And then he asked for more!
I don’t have the crazy expectation that he’ll eat it every time I give it to him just yet, but it’s a start! Keep the faith, people!
For snack, I made a blueberry muffin and banana monster. Raaaaahr!
One of Wyatt’s friends at school has a laptop lunchbox, so he’s been requesting that I use it to pack his lunch and snacks more frequently. Now that he’s eating more, it makes a lot of sense to use it and it’s pretty easy too, so I’m happy to oblige (when it’s not in the dishwasher, that is.). Thursday’s box had whole wheat pita wedges, toasted, spread with a smidge of butter and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, leftover pasta with red sauce from dinner the night before, blueberries, baked tofu cut with cookie cutters and colored with a food marker and a chunk of banana.
Friday’s snack was a bun with a bunny drawn on it (BUNny! Get it? Ha ha! I amuse myself.) and some clementine wedges.
