An Easy Guide To Kid's Snack

Being a first time parent sending her child to school, one of the things that still confuses me is the list of food to prepare for my child. At first, I thought that pre- packed fruit juices are fine. But early today, during the school orientation, I found out that it is not actually advisable for kids to have them.
The school gave us a list of preferred food and dishes for the child to bring to school and to be eaten at home.
Let me share some of them with you...
Vegetables:
Fresh lumpia
Boiled Potatoes
Baked Potato
Coleslaw
Buttered Mushrooms
Boiled Kamote
Cucumber and Carot Sticks
Meat:
Chicken Sopas
Tacos
Siomai
Beef Strips
Fish Fillet
Lumpiang Shanghai
Noodles/Pasta:
Spaghetti
Pancit
Lasagna
Baked Macaroni
Eggs(protein):
Egg soup
scramble eggs
leche flan
quail eggs
Dairy:
cheese sticks
Yogurt
Sandwiches/ Bread:
French Toast
Grilled Cheese
Pizza
Egg Sandwiches
Fruits:
Best if fresh or freshly squeezed
Beverages:
Milk/ Milk products
Water
Fruit Shakes
Fresh fruit Juices (calamansi/dalandan)
Wheat/ Grain/ Nuts:
Oatmeal
Soya Based products
Sopas
Cereals with Milk
Note: Best prepared and served using natural/ fresh ingredients without using any preservatives and too much salt.

Gusto ko fresh lumpia, pero I do not know how to make the wrapper. Gusto ko yung parang crepe.

Hindi ako nagpapadala sa mga anak ko ng fruit juices at school,only a (roasted) barley tea.And it's healthy.

Thanks for sharing this list of healthy foods for kids. I will try to prepare foods from this list for my son starting today, especially since he's going to school already on June 17. Our kids need to be healthy, especially with the swine flu threat.
