I’ve blogged about our little snack station before and it seems that you loved it! I thought I’d share what we’ve got on offer at the table this week.
The table suits us greatly because I hate being chained to the kitchen and the kids love to graze. I keep the jars and fridge stocked with time-tested favorites as well as new bits and pieces. I do prep and baking every couple of days instead of all day and the kids just help themselves as their appetite dictates. It’s a winner all round at our place.
Last week the fridge looked like this
Tannah and Harper eat baby cucumbers like they are going out of fashion. And the yoghurt is awesome on the granola
And the table looked like this
I know people love to pay out activated nuts…but they are awesome and easier to digest.
We are going through apples like nobody’s business at the moment. Thank goodness they are cheap and in season!
When we initially went to a “help yourself” style of snacking there was a lot of excited pigging out by the kiddos. We went through LOTS of food in the early days. Especially stuff like crackers and dried fruit. But the novelty wore off and now they eat for their appetite and what sort of food they feel like and they are just as likely to eat a square of cheese or wait for dinner if something good is on offer.
It’s a system that really works at our place.
