GiGi made this announcement last night, right after I had walked in the door from an especially sad funeral. (They all are, right? But this was for a 5 year old...just not okay. Hug your kids!) I was tired, I was done and I didn't want to think about any dietary restrictions. All I really wanted was to throw a cup of soup into a lunch bag with a banana and call it good.
Better yet, I put on pajamas at 5ish, and delegated dinner duties to my Hubby and lunch duties to G. His vegetarian dinner was mac-n-cheese and green beans. Not sure we met all the nutritional needs but whatever, I didn't have to cook. Oh and my ten year old, new vegetarian is a going to allow herself to eat; chicken, fish, steak and bacon; but other then that she's going to be a total vegetarian. ;)
Here's what she came up with....
They both have pepperoni bites (totally meat free! not!), whole wheat crackers, green grapes and cherry tomatoes, stretch island fruit leather and a granola bar. (Lili's is the "School Days" variety...made on dedicated peanut and nut free lines.) Those granola bars are not a normal thing in our pantry so the girls were super excited to have them. They also both have organic chocolate milk to bulk up the protein. (My add to this lunch...I would have liked to have seen some cheese too.)
For snack GiGi packed them pretzels and a plum.
