Can we share some ideas? It's been very hot here the last week or so. Yesterday was so bad we kind of OD'd on sugar (popsicles, etc.) and fruit. The result was H being up until 10 PM, wired and N getting a diaper rash. Ugh. Here are some of our hot weather favorites.
Cucumber (great dipped in hummus!)
Cold meats (roasted chicken or deli turkey)
Toddler trail mix (dried fruit snacks mixed with Cherrios, yogurt bites and broken graham crackers)
Yogurt (frozen tubes are a favorite)
Crackers and cheese (cream cheese is a fav, or hummus)
Cold pasta salad
Frozen veggies (only N will eat this)
I try to get a decent sized breakfast into them (eggs or some oatmeal) and then let them kind of pick the rest of the day. We give OJ at breakfast (calcium fortified, since they dont' drink milk) Lemonade as a treat and water otherwise. Sometimes I fill a snack cup with crushed ice and let them play/eat it.
I'd love to hear what you guys do. I'm kind of running out of steam. I hope this breaks soon.
