My children would like to bring some kind of snack to school for their class room.. there are about 25 students in the classes.. the teacher suggests healthy snack. So I need some ideas of things that will not be too costly, will be healthy and will be enough for that many students.. maybe let me know what snack you send with your child, or that you yourself bring to school.. Thanks for any suggestion, they are very appreciated! :)

try lumpia. INGREDIENTS * 1 tablespoon vegetable oil * 1 pound ground pork * 2 cloves garlic, crushed * 1/2 cup chopped onion * 1/2 cup minced carrots * 1/2 cup chopped green onions * 1/2 cup thinly sliced green cabbage * 1 teaspoon ground black pepper * 1 teaspoon salt * 1 teaspoon garlic powder * 1 teaspoon soy sauce * 30 lumpia wrappers * 2 cups vegetable oil for frying DIRECTIONS 1. Place a wok or large skillet over high heat, and pour in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Cook pork, stirring frequently, until no pink is showing. Remove pork from pan and set aside. Drain grease from pan, leaving a thin coating. Cook garlic and onion in the same pan for 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked pork, carrots, green onions, and cabbage. Season with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and set aside until cool enough to handle. 2. Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap to retain moisture. 3. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Slide 3 or 4 lumpia into the oil. Fry the rolls for 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.
