Maggie Ellison of South Carolina, USA writes:
“On the go, I grab a banana, cheese stick and an apple juice box for the kids. I’ve been working on adding carrots to that and so far, so good. If they need more, I will throw some pretzels or crackers in a bag. It all just depends what we have and what we will be doing.” (more…)
