My children never cease to amaze me with the amount of food they can consume in one day. 3 meals a day is not enough! Therefore, we go through a large amount of snacks every day. Mostly things like grapes and bananas, or cheese. But we do like graham crackers, goldfish, vanilla wafers, things like that. They are great for throwing a bagful in the diaper bag to pull out in the middle of Walmart (a trip there always takes at least 2 hours somehow, even if I am not buying much.) And somehow, I had run completely out!
I was out of anything remotely connected with portable snacking. Fruits and veggies I have plenty, but nothing long lasting. I tend to buy large packages of these edibles, and I guess they don't last forever. And generally they stagger themselves when they run out, but not this time. So I took myself and the kids off to the store while I was in town today for Nathan's therapy, and stocked up. Walmart has HUGE boxes of goldfish crackers for like, 5 bucks. Large bags of animal crackers, cheapo graham crackers... Austin brand has those little cracker sandwhiches in little packages that come in flavors like PB&J (tastes like it too) and grilled cheese. Those are great for Boise trips. Or lunches.
So now, when my children complain of hunger midday, midmorning, midevening, sundown... I can confidently stroll into my kitchen, peel a banana, and throw in a handful of fishy crackers! Voila! Snack time!
