Snack today was crackers, cheese and grapes.
For lunch there was pasta int the Thermos and veggies, salad dressing dip in the green container, blackberries and sugar coated almonds. S rejected the sugar coated almonds. I guess I'll have to give up on getting him to eat almonds if he doesn't even like them coated with sugar!!!
A and I juoined the boys for lunch tpoday and used our new blue dragonfly containers - woo hoo! My lunch is above. I had nuts, apples and cheese in the top container and veggies, turkey and crackers in the bottom.

A had blackberries, carrots and peanuts (he rejected the almonds too and insisted I pack peanuts instead) and pesto pasta in the bottom container.

Deli Skewers

E's snack on top - cheese sticks and orange slices. S's snack on the bottom - nuts and dried fruit and oranges.
Lunch was apple slices, half of a pumpkin pie granola bar, tortilla chips, cheese and deli meat skewers and some hummus (for S) or guacamole (for E). S has never been a fan of deli meat but I'm finding that he will eat it occasionally on a skewer.

Chicken Salad and Stuff

Cheese, cracker and pears for snack today. S left two of the crackers - but hey, he ate two!
A smorgasbord for lunch today! Pasta, oranges and chicken salad on top and beans, cheese crackers and a no bake oatmeal cookie below. I go back and forth about offering a lot of choices or just a few. I think a lot is good as long as they don't have to open many containers...

Looky what I won!

I won all these goodies from Eileen at the Sublurbs! You can see some of the cute little food picks in the beans in the post above. I'm thinking I might make the boxes mine instead of letting the boys use them.... :)

Thanks Eileen! Oh and check out Eileen's latest post of the time lapse photos of her family decorating the Christmas tree - too fun!

Pizza and cinnamon apple sause

E LOVES guacamole so today he had carrot sticks and some guacamole. S had hummus and carrot sticks (a lot this time..) Not much in the protein department but they are making up for it by eating a lot of veggies which they never eat enough of - nor do I for that matter...
Here is lunch. Yes, pizza again. The two pieces of pizza are packed this time with some very cinnamon-y apple sauce, half of a banana nut muffin and some grapes.

MTM- Christmas Breakfast

I had thought that making a Muffin Tin Monday breakfast on a Monday morning would not exactly work for me but I woke up eary so decided to give it a shot. Here is A's Christmas-y breakfast. Top row = "fairy" bread tree (toast with cream cheese and sprinkles, scrambled eggs, and very cinnamon-y apple sauce. Bottom row = grapes, a star shaped piece of ham and more eggs. We actually usually have cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning breakfast (when we are home at least) but I didn't make any. I figured the applesauce and fairy bread would suffice as something "treat like".

A liked his breakfast a lot. His big brothers liked it also since of course I had to make them a special breakfast too. They were ok with just eating it off a plate. :)
