Every morning, mothers face the question “What should I bring my child to school for a snack?”. But in order not to puzzle in the morning, I suggest doing it in the evening. Extra 10-15 minutes to your sleep are provided. A trifle, but so necessary in the morning.
The main principles by which I assemble a lunch box for my child are the following:
- Food should be eaten cold. With a warm-up at school, the child will definitely have difficulties, but cold soups or cereals are not pleasant for anyone, for example. Cutlets, whole pieces of meat and side dishes are also not a good option for a child at school.
- Food should be as non-staining as possible. As practice and observations show, in elementary school children will find what and how to get dirty. Rarely does anyone return home without being smeared. Personally, I am not very happy with the possibility of washing a school uniform every day, even if there are spare clothes. Thus, I am fighting against unwanted stains on clothes and for extra free time.
- Food should be hearty, healthy and tasty, of course. The main thing here is the child’s response, “I want more” or “Don’t do this again.”
- Recipes should be quick and easy to prepare.
Despite the fact that we went to school quite recently, in my piggy bank there are several delicious options for school snacks that the children have come to taste.
1. Oat-curd wafers with nuts and dried cranberries.
This option is great for both snack and breakfast.
You will need:
incomplete glass of Hercules, 1 egg, a teaspoon (with a slide) of honey, a mixture of nuts and dried cranberries, 2 tablespoons of soft cottage cheese
Combine all ingredients, let stand for 5 minutes, then bake using a multi-baker or waffle iron.
From this amount of products, 6 waffles are obtained. The cooking time takes 15-20 minutes.
2. Envelopes from wheat cakes with cheese and baked turkey in spices.
You will need:
wheat tortilla, cheese (any to your taste), baked turkey.
I try to buy sausages infrequently, so I prefer to bake meat for sandwiches in the oven myself.
Wrap cheese and turkey (or other meat/sausage) in a wheat cake with an envelope, fry in a multibaker until crispy. Ready.
3. Lavash roll with cottage cheese and apples/mango.
You will need:
cottage cheese 400 grams, 2 eggs, 40 grams of sugar, 40 grams of semolina, milk, 4 small apples / 1 mango, pita bread.
Beat cottage cheese, eggs, sugar with a submersible blender. Soak semolina for 10 minutes in a small amount of milk. Add to curd mass. Peel apples. Distribute the curd mass over the pita bread, put apples or mangoes on top. Roll up into a roll. Brush the top of the roll with beaten egg to get a golden crust. Bake for 25-30 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees.
Also great for lunch boxes are pancakes, pancakes, rolls with fillings, canapes with vegetables, fruits and much more. We will share the most delicious and fastest options with you.
