Yesterdays Lunch & Handy Snacks!

Yesterday I packed the two oldest girls subs for lunch. The two younger kiddos had bag lunches for a field trip. Today I followed up on a idea I saw on Pinterest for making snacks handy for the kids. I tweeked it a little and used reusable containers for most and a few snack zipper seal bags. First let's see lunch.


This lunch for the middle girl. She has a Applegate ham sub, a side salad, carrots and grapes. She also has a Easter snack mix I threw together and ranch for dipping.

 
This is lunch for the oldest. She has a Applegate ham sandwich, broccoli. peppers, sugar snap peas and grapes. She also has strawberry applesauce and snack mix.
 
And here are what I like to call Handy Snacks!

 
In this basket I have proportioned snacks. There are Annie's White Cheddar Bunnies, Annie's Cheddar Bunnies, Annie's Chocolate Grahams, Goldfish, Goldfish Grahams, Cashews, Peanuts and Annie's Fruit Snacks.
 


In this basket: Homemade Easter snack mix, chocolate grahams and regular grahams.

 
These are the fridge snacks. Salads(meal), Cucumbers, Apple sauce, Gogurt, Apple slices, Celery. Clementine oranges, Broccoli, Sugar snap peas and carrots. I also have plenty of fresh produce on hand to refill the baskets. I have lots of snacks standing by to go into the baskets. Now these are what I call Handy Snacks. Enjoy your weekend and I will see you again next week. Bye for now!

  3. I love the idea of the pre-portioned salads. How long do your salads last? I read a tip once that to keep salad fresh longer, you should put a clean, dry paper towel on top of the salad and then store the container upside down so that any moisture catches in the paper towel, and then you just remove the towel before eating the salad.
