In spite of an unfortunate Bento Box incident(Isabelle's new bento top busted into pieces!), I have been trekking along with the healthy lunches for my kids. When they were in home care, I liked the fact that I didn’t have to worry about packing lunches for them, BUT now that I do pack them I really like the fact that I know what they are eating (mostly).
I thought I would lose steam on this, but really, I look forward to packing their lunches and it’s another little creative outlet for me. And, if truth be known, I probably mostly Bento to keep myself motivated to pack healthy lunches. THEY would probably prefer a Lunchable and a baggie of carrots. You KNOW that’s the truth.
In the top box you have Beloved Mac and Cheese, paired with Nitrate free hot dogs (ummm that's supposed to be cut to look like an octopus..but oh well) In the little monkey head you have ketchup. In the bottom bento you have Strawberries, cucumber butterflies, and teddy bear cheese. In the little box's are white chocolate chips for a treat, and the closed one has a bit of ranch dressing for dipping the veggies.Yum!
