This coming weekend, we are hosting 15 Middle School boys for their Walking Wisely Weekend through Browns Bridge Community Church. Wow! I am going to be in extreme food prep mode all week.
These are kids that are used to eating and drinking LOTS of processed food and drinks…which I try REALLY hard not to serve any more. I’ve already made the concession to buy soda ( 😦 ), but I want them to have lots of other options too. So I’m going to be making sweet tea concentrate and lemonade, and have lots of water bottles available. That way, they at least have healthier options around – which could make all the difference. 🙂
For the food…well, I could really, really use an infusion of ideas. We will be serving a post-session large snack on Friday night, Saturday morning breakfast, Saturday lunch, snacks all throughout, and Sunday morning breakfast. Here are the recipes I’ve compiled thus far, most of which have some component that I can get ready days in advance and throw into the freezer.
Homemade Sandwich Rolls (I figured I’d also buy some different kinds of deli meats and cheeses).
Veggie tray with Homemade Ranch Dressing (again, they need non-sweet, non-junk options, people!) 😉
BUT, I still need some lunch ideas. Here’s where you come in. If you could PLEASE share some tasty, healthy options that will appeal to 6th grade boys, I would be most grateful! Also, if you have any other easy, tasty snack ideas, please share those, too. Comment below with your ideas, your web sites, or your Pinterest pins.
