Poppet and Pixie have two breakfasts during the week: one at home and one at school. They also get a cooked lunch at school (so I feel less guilty when supper consists of fruit and sandwiches). I do have to send a mid-morning snack, though, and it’s hard to keep from falling into the rut of Mini Cheddars, yoghurt and a banana every day. Luckily for me (and you) there’s Pinterest.
