Packing lunch

It's finally getting warm here in Massachusetts, and I'm using free parks, playgrounds, ponds, etc. to entertain my 2 1/2- year-old. I always pack a lunch for both of us in the cooler, but need some fresh ideas to avert boredom. I'm trying to lose weight, and I don't like her to have

    Default Packing lunch

    It's finally getting warm here in Massachusetts, and I'm using free

    parks, playgrounds, ponds, etc. to entertain my 2 1/2- year-old. I

    always pack a lunch for both of us in the cooler, but need some fresh

    ideas to avert boredom. I'm trying to lose weight, and I don't like her

    to have too much sugar, so even though PB&J sandwiches are easy, I need

    an alternative. She also gets impatient waiting in the morning while

    mommy packs lunch, so things that go together quickly would be a bonus.

    We don't have any other special dietary needs, although the only fish I

    can stand is tuna. Any suggestions?



    Thanks,

    Suzanne

    Maybe Tuna and crackers? I will do this with my son we share a can of tuna and add Ritz crackers with them he loves it. Maybe add some fruit or veggies like celery, carrots, apples. Just cut them up the night before and keep them in a container to throw in the cooler. Oh and we love pickles too, I throw a couple in a ziploc when we take lunches.

    <font size="2" color="teal" face="Comic Sans MS">11.0pt;font-family:"Comic Sans MS";color:teal;">Try a salad for
    you. Pack it in a Tupperware like container the night before (after she is in
    bed). Put the dressing in a small container you place inside the salad
    container – so the salad won’t get soggy. I add some feta cheese
    or finely shredded parmesan to my salads, then you can either toast some sliced
    almonds and add those, or in a snack baggie, place some sugared pecans (the sugar
    comes off them if you put them on the salad). They are real easy to make from
    scratch – just Google the recipe for them. You can always get a 6 oz salmon
    filet and cook that in the same salad dressing you will use for the salad (the
    night before). Put that in a separate container – then place on your
    salad before you eat it. Oh, from Target you can get the packages of dried
    fruit. I also add dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries to my salads.
    I generally don’t add the meat. It is enough for me.

    <font size="2" color="teal" face="Comic Sans MS">11.0pt;font-family:"Comic Sans MS";color:teal;">I forgot –
    you can also do your DD’s PB&J the night before. Spread (thinly)
    both sides of the bread with PB and then put the jelly thickly on 1 slice of
    the bread. The PB stops the jelly from soaking through the brad.

    Bread is very fattening, if you are dieting than maybe just make some

    ham & cheese roll ups without the bread

    or try sm. burrito or pita shells.



    You are lucky you have warm weather.

    Michigan has been rainy, warm, cold on & off.

    Today & yesterday has been cool.

    It feels more like fall weather our way.



    M.O.P.S. is an international group.

    It stands for mothers of

    preschoolers. You can go online and find a group in your area.

    It is a group of christian ladies non-demonination that meet about

    2 times per month & keep planned activties throughout the summer!

    There is nursery provided for children, while mothers have

    adult social time, breakfast, guest speaker, craft.

    I was a member and really enjoyed it.

    Just wanted to share that with you.

    It sounds like you are a proud active mom!!

    try some ants on a log-celery with alittle pb smeared across top and top that with raisins.
    carrot sticks sliced thin so she does not choke and some kind of dressing for her to dip them in.
    You can get the lunchable jr. meals that has the cubed up meat,cheese and crackers.They come two meals worth together for 1.95 here.

    You can also do veggie sticks, chicken drumsticks, slices of ham, wraps, crackers, there are litterly lots of options to chose from, and for dressing I always save those packages of condiment like dressing, ketchup and what not that are handed out at the fastfood restaurants - or if you buy ready prep salad at the deli in your local grocery store - small packs of dressings comes with for free...I always grab extra of those and keep for lunch bags etc..they are awesome.

    Thanks,
