Back-to-School 2014 - Preschool Snack Ideas for Toddlers

I really cannot believe that I am about to type these words...
Next month, my Little J will be starting preschool 2 mornings per week!

It is going be a huge change for us. We have never been apart for very long, and I have a little anxiety about how this is going to go. Ok, if you know me in real life then you know I have a LOT of anxiety...but that's a topic for another day! :)

Little J, on the other hand, says he is very excited to go to school. He is s super social little guy, and loves making new friends. So, I think he will love the interaction with other kids, and feel that he is going to enjoy the time spent at school. 

The kids have to pack a snack for preschool, and I started thinking of what I can actually pack him, since there isn't a refrigerator available for the kiddos to use. Healthy and can stay for a few hours without going bad....

So, for all of the mama's that need some preschool snack ideas, here is what I recommend:

Little J loving his blue Rover Planet Box

1. Use a reusable lunch box to reduce waste and save money. We love the Planet Box Rover lunch box! It's made from safe, non-toxic, recycled materials. It's made from high quality stainless steel, which means no yucky stuff like PVC, phthalates, BPA....and it looks cool and has a fun carry handle too, which means Little J is happy to tote it around! Add the Planet Box Cold Kit, and your kid's food will stay fresher longer, and you can pack a wider variety of food options. 

2. Choose healthy, kid-friendly, finger foods that they can easily eat at school. 

Things we like for our lunchbox include:

- Fresh veggies (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower) with dip (guacamole, hummus, yogurt)
- Fresh fruit (apples, oranges, clementines, strawberries, blueberries)
- Pretzels, Puffs, Veggie Straws, Pirate's Booty, or cereal also make great quick snacks that won't perish by snack time
- Applesauce
-Mini Babybel Cheese
- WATER! Avoid empty calories in juice boxes, and keep your child hydrated. Use a reusable water bottle or sippy cup to reduce the waste of plastic bottles. 

3. Be aware of children that may have food allergies in your child's class. 

Hopefully, the school makes parents aware of this (if not, ASK) but you can never be too safe when it comes to kids and allergies! Here is a helpful list of allergenic foods of what to avoid in your child's lunch box.

While your child may not be allergic to any particular food, kids tend to share food at school, which can lead to a very dangerous situation. So, please make sure to find out. 

Have a healthy and safe back-to-school season and school year!
