I love this idea. As a mom and as an on-call teacher who sometimes (ok often!) gets a last minute call to go to this school or that, it is nice to have some ready-to-go lunch snacks.
In my house we have a snack bin for dry snacks, granola bars, fruit snacks, yougurt bars, cereal bars, crackers, cookies, etc. I also have one of those bins in my classroom for kids who don't bring lunches or miss breakfast. (Last year I also had a small fridge in my class where I stored yougurt tubes for kids in similar situations)
But I love the idea of having cold snacks and even sandwiches or wraps ready to grab and go at any time.
COLD SNACKS BIN:
String Cheese, Babybel cheese
Yogurt smoothies or other yogurt cups
Carrots ( I found little cups with lids at Cash n Carry that I add ranch dip to them sometimes)
Mandarin Oranges, whole
Green Peppers, sliced thinly
Grapes, Cherries, Canteloupe or other seasonal fruit cut up
DRY SNACKS BIN:
Crackers or Pretzels
Brownies or Homemade Cookies ( I bake up a bunch and individually bag them up)
Special Treats ( usually for a holiday – like a single candy on Halloween…)
