  • Peanut Butter and Jelly on Whole Grain Gold Fish Bread (he “doesn’t like sandwiches” maybe this would help??)
  • Mini sweet peppers
  • cut up cantaloupe
  • Gushers (ugh. His “Treat”)
  • Water

What Came Home?

    I use the Planet Box for my daughter, and I love the built-in portion size. BTW, I just made home-made fruit rollups! I know there's still sugar in them, but they'd be a better alternative to the Gushers because at least you can use real fruit and there's only 3 ingredients. I just made raspberry ones today! Reply

    I love that you get to see what he doesn't eat. When my kids were that age - they had to "dump" the remains because the classrooms had ant problems! Reply

    Goldfish bread now that is a cool idea. They make some great organic all natural fruit snacks with no dyes (yeah!). Annies is a good brand. Making your own fruit leather is a good idea I will have to try that. I guess I am lucky because my kids have never been allowed anything with food dyes so they never ask and don't feel deprived. They get enough of it from friends houses! They would much rather have homemade pretzels or power balls. Reply

    I thought that Ryan couldn't have peanut butter in school? Did you use one of the alternatives? I work in a day care center that is also peanut free and we have a "school safe peanut butter alternative" which I have never tried. It sounds scary to me. lol Reply
