    Anything but Sandwiches… kid-tested, mom-approved

So I’ll post a few lunches that are “kid approved.” Here are some examples of non-sandwich lunches that I’ve been given the “thumbs up” of approval on.

    Healthy snacks for Tots on the go!

    We’ve all been there, a list of errands a mile long and a hungry, whiney toddler melting down because they want a box of cookies they saw on Aisle 3.  Before you cave into grabbing that expensive, high-sodium, sugary “convenient” food, try a hand at this.  As parents, we all know we’re much better off…
