Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.
As many of you noticed upon entering this week's giveaway, our sponsor's shop is currently empty. Due to unforeseen circumstances we are afraid that we will not be able to follow through on this particular giveaway as planned. We apologize! We have posted a new review/giveaway for eebee's adventure's dvds in place of this for this week.
We’ve had all summer to test and enjoy reusable snack pouches and sandwich wraps at the lunchtime concerts in the park, the beach, our camping trip, Vacation Bible School, Lego Camp, and more!
Using reusable packaging is a great way to teach your child about:
~Making good choices on nutritious snacks
~The economics of packing your own snacks/lunch
~ Reusing/reducing trash
Teacher Suggested Snacks for Back to School!
This list is courtesy of 2nd Grade teacher Mrs. H.
~Fruits and vegetables are the best, but often costly for some families
~Crackers & cheese, pretzels, graham crackers, and popcorn are acceptable choices.
~Lots of students bring granola bars or trail mix.
~Kids bring yogurt and jello too
~Some children enjoy dry cereal
~Fruit roll up & Fruit snacks are discouraged
~Water is encouraged :)
This 2nd list is from Kindergarten teacher Mrs. M.
~Nothing with peanuts, it is just easier to say that due to the large peanut allergies.

~Fruit already cut up is helpful
~Dried fruit & raisins are popular
~Crackers, pretzels, cheese sticks, veggie and dip
