Toddler Lunch Idea #4

What you're looking at:
  • Wheat crackers
  • Kiwi
  • Hummus
  • Cucumber with a splash of Italian dressing
This is a great example of the lunch formula I've adopted since I decided to spend less time on cooking (see also, photo from the last post of kids covered in contents of spice cabinet). I'm doing a fruit, a veggie, a grain, and a protein. Seriously, I just scribble down a few choices of each on the grocery list before I go to the store and then reach into the fridge/freezer/pantry for one of each when it's time for lunch. I'm still feeling pretty confident about the nutritional quality of their meals, though in this case I would make sure that at least one other meal in the day is higher in calories). And you know what? The kids are still pleased as pie when I put their trays in front of them. Score one for Mommy.
