- silicone cup of grapes
- half sandwich of all natural peanut butter and honey on white-wheat bread
- cheddar cheese squirrels and a fruit leather heart
- garlic-parm pretzel thins
- cucumber slices
- tiny pack of Annie's organic fruit snack bunnies (the package also acts as a nice barran (barrier) to separate the wet cucumbers from the sandwiches)
