The girls love Edamame beans. They are pretty costly if ordered from a Japanese restaurant and I do not like it that salt is often sprinkled on the beans. The best is of course home-prepared, sans salt and washed before briefly cooking them in the microwave oven. My girls love to bring Edamame beans to school as snacks during recess.
This picture was taken this morning. Last night, Cass asked me if she could bring the green soy beans to school and I told her yes on condition that she does not dilly dally and can get herself ready for school on time. She promised me and kept her promise this morning. So here she is... getting her favorite snack ready for recess today by removing the beans from the pods.
In Cass' pre-school, Mondays are bright green colored green cakes for snacks *shudder* and I usually let her bring something to school
instead of letting her eat the 'green monster'. Thursdays are usually
corn flakes (which Cass always tells me that she hates them as they are
dry) or belly button biscuits with neon colored and hardened icing on
top (aka biscuits to be offered to children ghosts during the Ghost
Festival!). Most pre-schools these days offer junk food as snacks to
toddlers and pre-schoolers, all in the name of greed and selfishness so
that money is saved from buying better quality snacks.
