Snacks!! I found this interesting. The images from previous posts in this series came from a 1939 picture dictionary for children. There was no entry for the word “snack” . . . interesting . . . because it seems as though children today would starve to death without snacks. (Just ask my boys. “We’re STARVING. We need a SNACK.”) So snacks . . . we usually have one in between lessons, one in the afternoon during storytime and another one before bed. The snack before bed is easy (no choices): toast with hot milk – easy, peasy. Snacks during the day vary.
- avocado and tortilla chips
- cheese quesadillas
- english muffin pizzas
- english muffins with cream cheese
- fruits and nuts
- peanut butter on toast
- ham roll-ups
- banana, milk and peanut butter smoothies
- popcorn (have you tried this recipe yet? Oh, my. It’s good. And we just use Old Bay.)
- cold cereal with milk
Have you seen/read about Melisa Nielsen’s snack tray ideas? How about these energy balls from Rachel over at Clean? And Mama and the girls, read what they have to say about snacks and books. What little bits and bites are you eating at your house?
