My kid was eating the above while the other kids were eating ground beef, tater tots, applesauce, baby peas with snacks of yogurt and fruit. So I didn’t do too badly matching what he was eating to his little buddies’ food.
I made him mini-sandwiches with the sandwich bread I made. We also made our own muffins “together,” (if you can really do that with a two-year old) but I put walnuts in them and so I couldn’t send them to daycare because of the nut ban. So I sent the last one of these that I had in the freezer. The kids at daycare were eating cod nuggets, blueberry muffins, pineapple bits, green beans, with snacks of fruit and cheese and crackers.
The chicken nuggets I made were easy and fast: chopped up chicken thighs, breaded with crumbs, and dropped into a pan of oil I made a ton of them for dinner and then sent him with some leftovers. The kids at daycare had chicken nuggets, rice, diced peaches, diced carrots, with snacks of ice cream and fruit.
I packed this before I left so that my husband didn’t have to work too hard in the morning. The kids at daycare were eating diced ham and beans, mandarin oranges, peas, with yogurt and bread with soynut butter as snacks.
I asked my husband to take a photo of what he packed so I could share it. In comparison my son’s daycare buddies got tuna with pasta, pineapple bits, green beans with snacks of blueberry muffins and fruit. Props to my husband!
When my husband has a snack, my son will go up to him and ask, “has guten?” It’s adorable and hard to watch all at the same time.
