Two weeks of last-minute panic-packed nut, gluten, and dye-free Kindergarten snacks!

Cheetos Natural, organic grapes
I got my poker suite picks from a local Asian grocery, but I've seen some nice wooden ones online.

Pirate Booty, organic grapes and sugar snap peas
Packed in a Hello Kitty bento box (similar to this one) that I *think* was a gift from my friend Candy Girl at Bent On Better Lunches for my birthday... Or else she sent a different box. I had just made a trip to the Sanrio store and had some other ones and they all got piled together... and my memory is like Swiss cheese...

Organic apples, Yummy Earth organic fruit snacks
The Yummy Earth fruit snacks came in one of my foodie subscription boxes, and they were a frantic last-minute grab. For some reason I forget to pack snack each morning, until we're getting ready to leave. Doh!

Organic mini apple, Cheetos Natural
The mini apple came from the organic farm where we get our weekly produce share. Cuuute!
This snack is in a Kiki's Delivery Service box.

She didn't get any more of the natural Cheetos after these, since I polished off the rest of the bag, plus another. Plus two more that I bought after. I made myself sick on all that dairy, but I was at a very low point in my life, emotionally. And I got lazy.
Not that the false highs of junk food helped any, when the crashes came... I still haven't gotten my diet back up to snuff. Still a lot of weak moments and lazy nights and bad nutritional choices. But I'm getting there. I didn't allow myself to buy a third round of bags...

Friday we played hooky. Well, we actually took a road trip down to Portland, since Hubby was going to Rose City Comic Con. He was a guest of honor or some such nonsense. But he'd have to drive down anyway, and they paid for his hotel room, so it was like a free vacation... where I was trapped with the kids all day while he played games and hung out with his buddies. It was worth it though! A nice escape from our everyday routine. Plus I wasn't trapped at home by myself with the kids for the weekend!

No clue what her Monday and Tuesday snacks were the following week though. I must not have had time to take photos. And as you can see, I've had to resort to taking last-minute pictures on the front porch while the kids climb into the car. So I must have been running really late, if there was not even time for that!

Naturebox Garlic Mandarin Peas, organic carrots

Did I mention life was hard around this time? Yeah. Missed taking pics for Thursday's snack too! Either that or I forgot to pack one until we were headed out the door and just grabbed some pre-packaged individual-sized stuff... I know I did that a few times...

Organic kiwi berries, GF BBQ Rice Snax shape crackers
This is in a snack box from a Totoro nesting box set. And I stuck a circle pick in the kiwi berries to go with the shapes theme.

She wasn't a fan of the kiwi berries, but she's not a kiwi fan either. But after seeing these on Instagram several times, I was squee-ing like a little girl when I found these at Fred Meyer!
