November Snacks: A Few of Our Favourite Things!

In November, we looked to our snack-loving staff to provide inspiration for the menu at Buddings Broadway. Inspired by the Julie Andrews song A Few of My Favourite Things, the teachers took turns making their own favourite dishes with the kids.

It was such a fun and tasty month of snacks, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to write a Buddings version of the Sound of Music classic. If you’re up for a challenge, try singing along with the Buddings lyrics below:

Blueberry pancakes                                                                      And cornbread with baked beans                                                Veggie quesadillas and fresh strawberry tartines                      Smoked tofu with rice – stir fry fit for a king                        These are a few of our favourite things!     

Chocolate chip waffles and crispy fried noodles                  Pineapples and oranges                                                            Fruit salad of nature’s jewels                                              Avocado toast that’s easy on your purse strings                          These are a few of our favourite things!


Organic ketchup with golden brown home fries                                                                                                                                    Crudités plate with veggies cut lengthwise                                                                                                                                            Apple crisp with vanilla Greek yogurt topping                                                                            These are a few of our favourite things!

When it’s snack time                                                                                                                                                                                  And we’re hungry                                                                                                                                                                                        When we’re feeling sad                                                                                                                                                                               We simply remember our favourite things                                                                                                    And then we don’t feel so bad!

Oh my, was that ever fun!
