I came across BentoLunch.net and was awed by the creativity that these moms have. It's wonderful how they lovingly prepared gorgeous lunches for their little ones. It's a great site for getting ideas, but I am nowhere close to artistry involved! I'm just happy that the kids have a somewhat healthy lunch.
All 3 kids' lunches are assembled in production line!
Baby's lunch: Maple leaf soy butter and jam sandwich, butterfly grilled cheese sandwich, steamed veggies, apple slices and goldfish crackers.
My 7-year old's lunch: grilled cheese sandwich, steamed veggies, apples and goldfish. He is growing up! Last year, he told me that he did not want his sandwiches to be cut in shapes. To make everything fit in his stainless steel Lunchbots container, I trim the crusts. Pretty soon, I will have to get him a bigger container. For now, he says it's enough food.
All packed and ready to go!
I found these super cute Hello Kitty lunch boxes at my local grocery chain. They were only $4.99!
