Life with a toddler and a baby is busy. I am breastfeeding my new daughter. She is a bit of a cluster feeder, which means that I am often in my chair feeding her for long periods of time. Breastfeeding makes me extremely hungry, as well. Making food for another human being is hard work! I needed to come up with a way to have food available for my toddler and I to grab quickly when one of us needed a snack. I decided to make bento box style snacks to have available in the fridge.
I purchased silicone baking cups and Ziploc containers to make my 'snack boxes'. I do my best to fill them with nutritious food that will keep me satisfied. I try to have a fruit or vegetable, a fat and a protein in each snack box. When I have time (usually during my youngest daughter's afternoon nap), I prepare the boxes and put them in the fridge. They are easy to grab when we need something quick to eat and they provide the nutrition that we require.
Here are some recent snack boxes that I have made for my daughter and I to enjoy:
