I have a new challenge…snacks. The funny thing is, I’m pretty good at packing up snacks for my kids. I have eaters. Big eaters. However, as I’m getting into this Bento thing, I’m finding myself wanting to rise to the occasion of coming up with a “snack in a box.”
Some snacks are for after school, on the way to activities, like this one. My biggest challenge here is protein. Portable protein is hard when I have one kid who is allergic to peanuts (and dislikes other nuts) and another kid who wants to be just like his older brother…get my drift?
This year, I also need to pack a snack for my third grader. In previous grades, they all just got a handful of crackers at snack time. This year, we are supposed to pack them something quick and healthy. This actually makes me quite happy as she’d prefer a piece of fruit or a few quick bites of protein.
A few questions for you readers:
1 – What are your favorite portable protein snacks?
2 – Do you pack snacks for your (older) kids at school? If so, what are their favorites?
Thanks for playing!
