On the Go Meals{& GIVEAWAY}

Meals must be thought out ahead of time in our house… not because I am all sorts of organized(that would be lovely). Instead it is from a whole slew of food allergies that make it almost impossible for us to eat on the go.  The list is twenty-four foods deep and not getting any smaller.  So we make it work with a large and in charge diaper bag full of necessities, because honestly no one likes a hungry preschooler(or toddler for that matter).   AND? My kids like to eat.  Luckily, they LOVE veggies, chicken, and all sorts of things I wouldn’t have thought to add into our diets that were lovely finds after being diagnosed with food allergies. On our visits to the Phoenix Zoo, that happen weekly, I bring enough food with us to feed them for six or more hours… and they usually eat every last bit of it.
Brother Sister Time
Snacks range from our Allergy-Friendly Chex Mix, fresh fruit and veggies, and their most favorite snack of all-what we like to call a “treat” for them is plain greek yogurt with fresh blueberries.  My one year old and three year old LIGHT UP when they see this snack make its way out of the diaper bag.  Of course, we need to make sure to say hi to all of the animals, run out the crazies at the pirate ship, and do our first lap before we sit down for our Zoo Picnic.  We usually stop at two spots to eat. This morning we TRIED to stay at one because Emma Marie’s favorite thing in the world(this week) is birds.  So ducks galore was her happy spot.
Feeding the Ducks
Unfortunately, as you can see in the background the geese thought the ducks were being fed by us and swam their way over… and they are definitely not the nicest.  So as the hisses started we all dashed for our other spot. Emma Marie ran the fastest… last time we saw a grown adult get attacked by one(not feeding the birds) and another get landed on while walking with a stroller.  Rowdy birds.
Tonight We Feast
Our FEAST was moved.  All hail the travel set!
Nuby Giveaway
Sweet, sweet sanctuary! We found our secluded spot overlooking the lemur island and set about getting out the goodies.  Emma Marie knew EXACTLY what treat we were having for lunch when I propped that on the table.  Greek Yogurt for the win!  And Nuby is letting me give away one set to you- my fabulous readers!
