Our First Sack Lunch



As I mentioned yesterday, Henry and I had fun on a pumpkin patch playdate with friends from the local babywearers group. It was also the first time I have packed a sack lunch for us. I was in a rush to head out the door, so here is what I quickly threw together for us to share.

  • Two pieces of Swedish rye bread smeared with cream cheese
  • A few strips of tuna jerky
  • A snack bag of Veggie Pirate Booty
  • A whole plum
  • A whole pear

It was a scattered assortment of flavors, but we hit all the major food groups. I assumed there would be picnic tables or a grassy lawn, so I didn't bring Henry's travel high chair. He did a great job sitting on the chair all through our meal.
Henry gums on a strip of tuna jerky.
The tuna jerky and Pirate Booty were new items in our pantry. Jerky is definitely an unconventional choice for babies and is a little high in sodium. Obviously Henry wasn’t able to chew it, but he just held on to a strip and gummed away. He did eat several of the Pirate Booty puffs since they quickly dissolved in his mouth.

The plum was extra juicy but easily cleaned up with a baby wipe. And I suspect that sharing the pear was his favorite part of our lunch.

What are your favorite on-the-go lunches to share with your little one?
