My son's class is having a bunny brunch. The teacher has asked that healthy snacks be sent ie., fruits, veggies, or pretzels. Any suggestions for anything else? I imagine that everyone will send those things and then they'll have 20 of the same thing. This is for 4 to 5 year olds.

What about making a different healthy dip to go with the veggies, pretzels, etc.: hummus (gabanzo/chickpea spread) is a favorite with lots of kids I know and it adds some protein to the snack. If you feel adventurous, eggplant dip, or squash dips can be tasty and nutritious, too.


Or what about a drink. V8 or V8 Splash or other veggie & fruit mixed juices would be something different. (Our family especially likes the ones mixed with blueberries. Walmart has a store-brand version that is really good.)

As always with kids that age, don't tell them what's in it!
