T's lunches Week of 8/20

A new everyday responsibility was added since T started kindergarten. I've never had to worry about food since she started daycare at 4 months old, but now she needs lunch everyday. This is a whole new routine that I have to get used to. Funny thing is that I've fallen out of packing lunches for C and I lately. Here are her lunches during the first week.

8/20
8/20
Content: ham, colby jack cheese, cucumbers, berries, fruit sauce pouch, baked apple chips & freeze dried raspberries, pretzels and chocolate cheerios.

I stuffed way too much food in the lunch bag the first day. I had mistakenly thought she started dance class the same day as well and needed snack in between. I also have no idea how much food she would really need/eat either. She ate the cucumbers, fruits, and the baked apple chips/freeze dried raspberries. Didn't touch any of the other stuff. This is probably not a good start...

8/21
8/21
Content: canned refried black beans with shredded cheese, cucumbers, fruits, yogurt with chocolate shavings, pretzels and chocolate cheerios.

She ate all the cucumber and the beans. Most of the fruit and a few cheerios/pretzels. When asked why she didn't eat the yogurt, she said she thought it was ranch dressing. She said she would eat it if she had known it was yogurt instead.

8/22
8/22
Content: spam musubi (purchased), strawberries, baby bell cheese, small juice box, carrots and cucumber with ranch dressing, pretzels and chocolate cheerios. 
By far her favorite lunch so far (of course it's the most unhealthy one!) She didn't eat the carrots and cucumber because of ranch (she changed her mind about wanting it) and also too full after everything else. The pretzels and cheerios were mostly untouched, which is fine since it's only snacks if needed.
8/23
8/23
Content: stir-fry noodles w/ broccoli and hotdog, mixed berries, her usual snack mix of Cheerios/dried fruit/pretzels, baked apple chips

I think she said that she ate a broccoli but didn't like the noodle because it's not warm. She also ate most of the berries (then again, it's not like she ate anything else)...

8/24
8/24
Content: Chicken sui mei (purchased) from Trader Joe's, cheese, grapes, and raspberries. 

She ate everything except for the cheese.

I think we are both still trying to figure out what she likes and could be packed for her. We just got a Thermos for her, so she's thrilled to be able to eat something warm again (like how it was in daycare). I think I'm slowly getting used to it, even packed a couple of lunches for C and I again!
