An Appetizer Lunch

Yesterday morning the girls and I attended a Princess Birthday Brunch at the “castle” of one of Charlotte’s classmates.  The brunch was from 10-12 and included an egg casserole, an oatmeal bake and some mini pigs-in-a-blanket.  Followed by a huge cupcake with loads of yummy frosting.  Were the girls hungry for lunch when we got home?  Um, no.  But I wanted them to eat something that afternoon.  So I put together an appetizer plate around 1:30 not expecting much.  Some carrots, raspberries, cheese, wheat thins, peanut butter pretzels, and mini pepperonis. 

I thought they could snack a bit while they played.  No real expectation that they’d eat much.

About 15-20 minutes later I glanced over because they had run off into the other room.  And the plate was practically empty.  Snacking success!  We may do lunch like this more often.  I think the fact that it was presented in a new way and was “fun” helped.
