So between last-minute grab-and-go snacks and absences due to illness, these measly selections are three weeks' worth of Kindergarten snacks.

|Organic satsuma, Glutino Rosemary Olive Oil crackers|
|Popcorners Kettle Corn, organic strawberries|
|Mini banana, Angie's popcorn (limited holiday flavor of some kind)|
|Leftover tater tots, organic turkey stick, crab meat, GF Lucy's chocolate chip cookies, Ghirardelli mint square|
Instead of Jojo potatoes from the deli, I sent leftover tater tots. And we found a healthy(er) turkey jerky stick thing at Whole Foods since they kids had each gotten one of some kind last year. The meat department had handed out samples of fake krab, which is not only full of fake Red dye, but also gluten. So I sent some real crab in a little disposable sauce cup, which ended up being a huge hit. And I sent some gluten-free cookies in lieu of the ones handed out at the bakery. And just to make up for anything awesome they might offer this year, I sent a mint creme-filled chocolate square that she loves.
To keep the crab fresh, I soaked some paper towels in water, and froze them in a small zip-seal baggie overnight, then used a rubber band to hold the box closed and pin the impromptu disposable ice pack to the box. Easy peasy!
Other than being told that the other kids got different stuff, I don't know how close her treats came to theirs, since Z couldn't remember. But she was thrilled with what she got (especially the crab and chocolate!) So, win!
