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. Of course, because I am a sharing kind of gal, I have included a printable (black and white) version of this Snack Suggestion 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).

To print: Click on the image above to open the PDF file. Select download. Open the document and print. Please note, to print you may need to select “Fit to printable area” (or similar) depending upon your printer type and local paper size.
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.
