Preparing for a sleepover for a 4th grade keto/MAD diet kid can be challenging. Alena went to a birthday party/sleepover this weekend.... I spent most of a "night off" from work preparing for this sleepover.

Here is the list of things I had to make sure to send with her...

Graham Crackers, Marshmallow Sauce, Chocolate Sauce
Dinner (pre-measured carrots, olives, Parmesan cheese, seeds/nuts, gram scale)
Banana Bread
Sleeping bag
Clothes and PJ's
Book (and book light)

The "gels" are a substitute for Birthday cake. She loves them. Here is the recipe for "Gels".

The graham crackers, marshmallow creme, and chocolate sauce are a substitute for "S'Mores" - which they are serving at the party. Here is the recipe for the "Graham Crackers".

Of course I am sending her with her dinner, pre-measured, except for the protein (Bison Burgers!) which the other mom will measure out for her.

For breakfast she will have "Banana Bread", which she has almost every day - she loves it. All they have to do is warm it up in a toaster oven.

I also have to send her medication with her - with instructions... And some snacks (ChocoRite naked protein bar, and Moon Cheese - both commercially made and MAD/Keto friendly)

Alena has some truly good friends - and their parents are amazingly supportive and caring. I was nervous for her first sleepover, but I know I can truly trust her friends' families to take care of her. But I still panic. Just a little.

She had a wonderful time at the party and was totally fine - except that she only slept about an hour that night! What a party animal!
