“Mommy, I hungy. I hungy.” My youngest is very persistent, and this is something I hear several times a day. I have to weigh whether he’s truly hungry or just bored. He does need something mid-morning. Four hours between meals is just too long for anyone to go without becoming cranky. During the morning I need to have quick and easy snacks that don’t interrupt my teaching. Below is a list of things we like to snack on that are fast and don’t really need any (or much) prep:
- apple slices with peanut butter
- yogurt with honey or maple syrup
- raisins or apricots
- bread with peanut butter or jam
- leftover pancakes with a topping – They truly are good cold.
- pickled eggs – super easy to make
- one or two slices of salami – This is one his dad gives him. I can’t stand even the smell of salami. ☺
- Ryvita crackers
|He prefers to lick the peanut butter off. ☺|
