Breakfast/ Lunch/ Snack ideas

My sister-in-law and I were talking yesterday about challenges keeping each of our galloping hordes of children fed (we each have 4 kids). Some of the eaters are pickier than others. Usually mealtimes are not a challenge, my sister-in-law said, but snacks. It is a challenge to find snacks that are healthy (no cookies), don't take lots of work (smoothies) and don't cost lots (fancy cheese?) So I decided to post my meal ideas lists for breakfast and lunch, and some snack ideas. Maybe it will help my sister-in-law, and some other moms/ dads too!

It may just give you and your kids some great ideas for snacks, breakfast or lunch, or get you out of a rut! You may not have all of these items in your home ALL the time, but you may, and it can be a delicious discovery!



John 21:11-13

11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.



Luke 12:28-30

28 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! 29 And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30 For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them.
