Two field trips in a row for E! What fun! On field trip days the boys don't get a snack time. When I'm packing their field trip lunch I try to pack the same amount of food that I usually pack them for snack and lunch. From the field trips I have attended, they seem to get close to a half hour to eat (vs the 15 minutes they get for school lunch) so I figure it would work out. It is not however working for E. The kid eats veryly slow so the other kids are finished before him and he wants to play with them rather than finish eating. I think I'll have to start packing less food for him on field trip days. S on the other hand seems to have no problem eating the bigger lunches on field trip day. One of the many ways my twins are different...
For lunch today I packed E a tortilla roll up with cream cheese and jelly, some water melon, grapes and cheese, a granola bar, and a juice box. All he ate was the roll up, the juice and half of the granola bar.
For snack today S had grapes and cheese.
For lunch S had a cream cheese and jelly roll up, watermelon, a cookie (cut in half to fit), cauliflower and a date with peanut butter. He ate every crumb.
