Lunch

It's been awhile since I posted any bento lunches. I haven't been doing anything too fancy but thought this would still be fun to share. Master's is on the left half a ham and cheese and some veggies, fruit and a marshmallow as a filler and there is sunshine dip (aka red french dressing) in the little blue container. I also sent a juice box and a mandarin orange cup. He didn't eat the oranges until we got home. I considered only sending one sandwich and doing a different filler like pretzels, sunchips or goldfish but didn't mess with it.

Dear Hubby has a ham and cheese wrap in a corn tortilla chipotle wrap, with veggies, fruit and some wal-nuts. The wrap was kinda small so I felt good about balancing it out with all the other healthy munchies. Some times I stick a piece of gum or candy or chocolate in as well!

I never know if the lunch is going to be eaten. Today's was a winner. Possibly more so because I couldn't get the kiddo to eat any breakfast. But thought I'd share how the container looked upon arriving home.

Thanks Jana! Packing bento style is super efficient and seems to produce less waste. I love that there is variety and healthy choices. Some Moms make it an art form my kiddos don't seem to care too much for the cutesy stuff. I still wish I could get my kids to try new foods but the older one is slowly getting more open minded! I can share lots of bento resources and ideas if you are interested let me know!
