Snacks, snacks, lots of school snacks!

At one point during this last school year I thought I'd make a real effort to start documenting our packed school snacks. The problem is it wasn't a habit and therefore kept slipping my mind in the crazy getting-ready-for-school morning rush and 97% of the time I forgot to do it.

So these are just the random handful of snacks I happened to take pictures of. They spread over a long time period, and bridge a transition in Paige's diet (the more recent ones being lower in simple carbs and sugar and are artificial dye-free).

This snack was packed in our newish strawberry bento box. This is a 2-tier (stacked) box, but I just used the top box this time, so it was a single tier.  It holds a homemade banana walnut muffin (with lots of chia seeds and flax meal added), and there are pumpkin seeds in the lidded Mini-Dipper container:

This is 1 of 2 new little bento boxes Paige got for her birthday in March. This one is divided into three sections. On this day she had Goldfish crackers, roasted almonds, and a Babybell cheese. That larger section was big enough to also hold one cell of a Goodbyn icepack blanet also, which helped keep the cheese nice and chilled until snack time:

The super cute lid... it's Hello Kitty! The lid snaps on like a Lock & Lock box. I found this bento set on ebay (from this shop).

This snack was packed in the 2nd box from that Hello Kitty bento set, this one doesn't have built-in dividers, but is the same size and has an identical lid. This snack contained a clementine, turkey jerky, and in the tube (an old mini M&M holder) are sunflower kernels:

Same box again, the tube also has sunflower kernels. And two mini granola bars ("flapjacks" from our Graze Box subscription):

Packed in a Goodbyn snack box, this snack is mini organic peanut butter cracker sandwiches (from Trader Joe's) and almonds:

Packed in a small Lock & Lock snack box, fishie crackers and pumpkin kernels:

The Goodbyn snack box again, mini saltine crackers and a mini muffin (I have no earthly memory of what type of muffin that was):

The same snack sized Lock & Lock box as above, but I slid one of the included trays to the middle to make 3 sections. This one holds a granola bar, fishies, grapes. This was Ethan's snack, I'm pretty sure:

Some sort of crackers and itty bitty mini Hello Kitty sandwiches. Those tiny kitty sandwiches were made using larger "scrap" pieces of bread from leftover cut-outs. I used HK fruit & veggie cutters to make those (#5 from my Hello Kitty cutter round-up post):
