As I said in yesterday's post, I usually sit down with Molly and we discuss what she might want for lunch. Today was no exception. As we finished our dinner, Molly chimed in with, "Mom, I know what I want for lunch tomorrow." I was thrilled. I didn't have to think of anything to make. Sometimes she'll say, "anything but peanut butter and jelly." Sometimes she'll only say that she wants apples as her side. But today, she told me everything that she wanted and a few extra things just in case we didn't have something. Most days I kind of guide some of her decisions so that we can include all of the food groups and I had to remind her to include a vegetable today. Other than that, this is all Molly.
Our vegetable side is cucumber sticks. Molly agrees that cucumbers don't have an overpowering flavor and that they will go well with our breakfast for lunch. Plus, cucumbers are crunchy so they add a great texture to our lunch.
Finally, our dairy/dessert side is Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla yogurt. Molly really likes this yogurt at just about any meal. We added some fresh raspberries at Molly's request. They are so flavorful and the crunchy seeds add a different texture to the creamy yogurt.
