Snack today was green apple with peanuts for S and with cheese cubes for E. Does anyone have any ideas for protein that can go without refrigeration for 2.5 hours other than nuts and cheese? We are in a rut...
For lunch the boys both had a sandwich, cantaloupe, rice pudding and granola bars. The grandparents picked up the boys after school today and watched them for the weekend - hello second honeymoon!! Anyway, they didn't tell me how much food they ate but I imagine they ate most all/all of it or they would have mentioned it.

  1. Beef jerky or turkey jerky
    Sunflower seeds
    Sunbutter on crackers or as a dip for veggies or apples
    trail mix with nuts and dried fruit and cereal

    Since it is a couple of hours until snack time, here's one of my favorite tips: buy reusable ice cubes in dollar stores (or cut apart an ice sheet meant for coolers) and just pop a couple right into the little snack box. They don't take up much room, and they stay cold just long enough to get to snack time. This way, you can send something like a hard-boiled egg.
