Lunch can be so boring. Luckily, K has a pretty awesome mom that makes cutesy, bento-esque lunches for her. All of her classmates and friends get excited to see what her lunch looks like each day. What's even better is that, despite being a picky eater, she eats every bite. The ticket to battling a picky eater is to offer bite size portions of numerous foods so they can experience a new taste without it feeling like a chore to chow down. Well, it works for us, anyhow. ;)
She isn't a fan of cheese, or condiments, so her flower sammies are just turkey and ham. The box is filled with raspberries, broccoli, toasted cinnamon flowers, a strawberry (for good measure), all rested on a bed of romaine. Veggie Crisps, celery with Sunbutter, and Apple & Eve juice to finish it off. While this was a simple lunch, the possibilities and variations are endless!
I ordered bento supplies and over the summer I'll be perfecting the art of cute food for K's lunches in 4th grade. (Fourth grade! Yikes! I'm getting old!) Sooner or later, I'm sure you'll see, yet another, blog from me dedicated to our bento experiments.
