Snack Day

Today was my LM's first snack day at school. I had the best time making the snack for the little wipper snappers. I decided on cheese cubes and seedless grapes which I cut in half (because holy cow if they choke on a whole grape) put them in a zipper lock bag and separated the two items with a pipe cleaner and curled the ends so it looked somewhat like a butterfly. Very creative for a not so creative person I thought.

I wanted something healthy yet fun. I don't need my boy hyped up on sugar before picking him up to come home.

Sounds lovely. The kids should love it as it's visual. They probably won't even think that they are eating healthier cause you made it fun.

Lindsay - you're not a bad mom at all - I just have very creative friends and always feel like I can't do any of that stuff. So I figured I'd give it a try.

If it makes you feel better my child told me he didn't like the cheese that he had for snack. LOL Now, I'm the bad mom!! ;)

Surprised that they let you even make a snack. In our school district it is strictly forbidden to make anything. You must buy it from a store.
