My daughter has recently started school (she’s in Grade 1!) and I’ve decided to be the one to do all her baon. I will be documenting her baon so that 1) I have a convenient record of it; 2) I can track which types of food she likes/dislikes; 3) I can track whether I am giving her healthy food or just giving in to convenience; and 4) my readers can get ideas on what to give their own children for baon.
Hopefully I can get pictures to go along with this diary, but since her classes now starts early there will be times I won’t have accompanying photos. Another thing to note here is that I give her food for both recess and lunch breaks (unlike last year where she only had recess food).
Recess: Jack n Jill Animal Bites, Alaska Choco chocolate drink (tetra pack)
Lunch: Rice, 3 pcs fish cake (shaped bunny, fish, and shell), 6 pcs grapes
Recess: Bread Pan (small pack), Alaska Choco chocolate drink (tetra pack)
For the first week she did not have a full day schedule so there isn’t a lot of food. She did not like the fish cakes. She really liked the apple. She ate everything else.
As for the preparation, I set an alarm about an hour before the school bus arrives. I prepare baon for the first thirty minutes, then in the next thirty I wake up the daughter, get her dressed, and eat breakfast. Most of the time though I go through two snoozes of my alarm, and end up with only 15-20 minutes for baon preparation.
Comments and suggestions are definitely welcome! I would love to hear about your ideas for a kid’s baon, or what you prepare for your own kids.
