I’ve been making Sadie’s lunch to take to daycare for quite a while now. The other day, though, I kind of started to panic (okay, maybe panic is a strong word) that a) I wasn’t sending her with enough food, and b) I was running out of ideas. So I surfed the web a little and polled my more experienced mom-friends, and I hit the store. This is what I sent with Sadie yesterday for lunch.
She’s got wheat tortilla pinwheels with avocado-cream cheese spread and sliced turkey (no preservatives or fillers!); chopped kiwi, cantaloupe, watermelon and honeydew; pasta with a touch of red sauce and some vegetables; and lima beans. For once, she wasn’t a starved maniac when we got home in the evening. I’m sure they didn’t feed her ALL of this at lunch time–some was saved for her snack. So I think this was a good choice. Upping the ante.
Oh, and here are a few places I’ve been getting my inspiration for Sadie’s lunches:
What’s for lunch at our house. I don’t know who the heck this lady is, but she is either amazing or nuts. Or maybe a little bit of both…
Weelicious. Not crazy about the name, but it’s got some cool recipes. I think this is where I got the carrot pancakes I made. Trevor and I liked them. I can’t remember if Sadie did.
My Food Looks Funny. Or not. I just like this one.
Oh! And check this out–I’ve finally written something for my organization’s blog.
