Gluten-Dye-Nut-Free Kindergarten and Day Camp Sister Snacks!

Several weeks of nut, gluten, and dye-free snacks for Kindergarten, "Mommy Meetings," and Day Camp for my girls!

Tuesday, 3/25/14 - Sister Snacks
Sweet Potato PopChips, Brach's Natural Gummi Candy
I've been going to a class for parents at Z's elementary school for helping to instill good study habits from an early age, and they provide childcare. Woop! So I pack matching snacks for my girls.

I put E's snack in a Take N Toss sectioned bowl (I don't recommend these. They work okay for baby mash and snack pots, and they're affordable so it isn't as big a deal if they get lost (if you have a kiddo who loses things often.) But the lid is a pain to get on all the way. For me, anyhow.
Z got a Kinderville Bigger Bites storage pot (I mix and match the lids.)

Brach's Natural Gummi Candy, Kettle Corn PopChips
I had packed some of the natural gummies in a Bumkins snack bag the night before, per a special request by Z. I didn't have time to pack a snack that morning, so just grabbed a bag of PopChips to go with. Not the healthiest snack ever, but the snack parents usually send a fresh fruit or veggie, so I really only need to worry about a suitable "crunchie."

GF Schar Cheese Bites, organic carrots and apples
Both girls got to go to a day camp at My Gym during Spring Break, so they got matching snacks! Z got the box on the left (a Disney Store exclusive, no longer available) and E got the Monsters U sandwich box. She's really into those characters! She even picked little boy "big girl panties" because some of them had these Pixar characters on them!

GF cheese Qwackers, GoGoSqueeze, water (for Z)
For our final weekday of Spring Break both girls had day camp, but this time they had them separately! Z went to a camp at Little Gym (I LOVE Little Gym!) while E went to the same gym as the day before. My Gym is a bit overwhelming for my big sensory girl, and she had a hard time the day before letting Little Sis play without her (I had to pick her up early due to a meltdown.) Ironically, while E does better with Big Sis around, Z does worse. And with the louder music and constantly shifting activities, Z can only handle one session a week (or less!) at My Gym. But E thrives there.

So though it meant that I only ended up with two hours to myself (E had camp from 1-4 and Z went from 2-5,) splitting them up was the best plan. They still got (pretty much) the same snacks though!

Tings, organic apples and carrots
A quick Kindergarten snack packed in a snack bag made by a WAHM and some reusable dye-free food-based Eco Eggs!

Sister Snacks
GF Schar Cheese Bites, Enjoy Life Brownie Bites, organic apples (for E)
Usually Z gets the bigger snack, but E had been sick and wasn't eating much, so I packed a little extra in hopes that she might eat something healthy. Newp. But she wasn't too sick to go to childcare with her sister at the elementary school while I went to my Tuesday night class for parents.

Z got the snack in the little box on the right, and E got her favorite Monsters U sandwich box.

GF Schar Cheese Bites, Motts's Medley fruit snacks, 1/2 organic banana
E was sick all week, and had woken up freakishly early this day, so I had plenty of time to pack a "real" snack for Z while Dadda took her to the pediatrician (she got extra sick that morning.) But still I copped out and just threw something together. I was tired!
