HELLO! I’m not dead. I was just on vacation. A LOOOOOOONG needed vacation. To add to that lovely break, I am finally getting a break from something on the daycare front. Starting Monday, I no longer have to send tiny bits of food to daycare for lunch! Yes, I realize I am lucky and spoiled. I pay good money to NOT do it 🙂
Starting at 11 months, the kids get lunch and snacks via the daycare here. They have a great variety (honestly not at much as L did but I think things will change since L’s old director is now O’s new one!). But since Oliver eats everything, I have been dicing tiny bits of food every night for months to make him 2 snacks and a lunch every day. This isn’t pack a sandwich, carrot sticks and an apple type packing. This is cut up chicken, broccoli, fruit, pasta, etc. I AM SO TIRED OF IT but I am happy I did. He is a master at finger foods. There is no baby food here. He feeds himself. He loves a wide variety of stuff. It played out well.
But as I did it, I realized once again that people might want some examples of what to send to school. I mostly sent leftovers or just known staples but I figured those posts were pretty buried. So here we go. I didn’t do rankings because the kid eats everything. Really. Everything.
This was just a handful of them but you get the idea. So what do you send your little with to daycare?
New here and want more examples? I have WEEKS of this stuff from Landon’s days all waiting for you! And always follow the hashtag #toddlerdinners and #infantdinners on Instagram and Twitter for other ideas from around the interwebs!
