As a new school Mum about to embark on her first foray into preparing school lunches, I thought it would be useful to compile a list of quick and easy snack suggestions for recess (or ‘little’ lunch) to hang inside my pantry door. I am guessing that this will be helpful both as I prepare my grocery shopping list each fortnight and when I am racing to pack Immy’s lunch before falling into bed the night before a kindy day.
Of course, because I am a sharing kind of gal, I have included a printable (black and white) version of the list for you to download for your own pantry or fridge door (it even includes some extra spaces for you to add your child’s favourite snacks). Just click on the picture below to download your copy.
P.S Have you entered our two back to school giveaways? Be in the draw to win one of two sets of re-useable sandwich wraps and pockets from 4MyEarth and one of two School Labels Value sets from Bright Star Kids. Entry open internationally.
P.P.S. In case you were wondering about my thinking behind the ‘easy to eat’ fruit, as a teacher I have observed many children who just want to go and play with their friends but instead are left behind sitting eating a large apple or struggling to peel an orange both of which can take forever for children (or alternatively, three quarters of the fruit ends up in the rubbish bin). Kids would much rather be playing than eating.
