Hi ABers,

My colleague and I are fresh out of ideas for snacks for the reception kids. This is what we have so far. But we need lots more ideas!

The main problem is that we need to keep fat and sugar low and have no nuts. Cheese strings are too expensive and things like celery go down like a lead balloon.

This is what we have so far.....

lol, night minty, sleep tight xx
Yoghurt tuna pasta with pitta milk grapes
Night peas xx see you soon
Hope some of these ideas help they require very little preparation. shop in aldi or lidl if poss their fresh produce is first class. Prepare bowls of rice risotto and serve up,also pastas with tuna. If you have a COSTCO boxes of mini pizza very cheap..large milk bottles also inexpensive at lidl or aldi..Good luck
I also thought that there's no need to go for brand names when there are just as good cheaper but good products around
Packets of rich tea finger biscuits. They are not too sweet, cheap to buy and you get a lot in a packet! They used to had these out at my sons nursery school when they had a glass of milk with them. The small size biscuits are just rightt for little hands.
What about slices of apples for finger food or some grapes?
