Beyond Spinach Nuggets and Zucchini Tots - what else for a toddler's lunchbox

mickeygee | Jan 5, 2013 06:41 AM

When packing food for my 2 year old, I need to provide her a lunch, snack and "dinner". Since we do dinner at home around 7, the 5:00 dinner at daycare I use a second snack and try to make it a veggie based snack so that if she doesn't eat her dinner, there's been some nutrition. (Her lunch is pretty balanced, and her snack is usually fruit and crackers or fruit and cheese). We do spinach nuggets, hummus and raw veggies or zucchini tots, but after a year I think she's getting bored of these options, as she's not eating them much anymore.

Any other suggestions for a vegetable based packable snack? Whatever I do I like to make a huge batch of and freeze for distribution over the week or two.
