this week in bento boxes

Sorry about the lack of posting this week! It’s been a crazy week and a crazy weekend. We’re doing a minor reno in our rec room and my whole house is out of sorts. We should be finished in the next 2 days and I can’t wait. I just hate mess. Anyway, here are some recent bento boxes that the kids have enjoyed. Really easy and super fun :-)

This was a fun bento for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break. The top tier held some whole wheat crackers and some turkey bologna roll-ups with cute animal picks. The bottom tier held a flower silicone muffin cup with butterfly-shaped cheese, a few slices of cucumber and some sliced baby carrots.

This was a perfect little snack for Kirsten for her morning nutrition break. These containers are small, but perfect for a snack or small meal. I find them to be a great size for my kid’s morning nutrition breaks. Her bento held a silicone muffin cup with sliced pineapple with a cute bunny pick. She also had a granola bar and some mini pretzels.

This cute Easylunchbox for for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break. I used my frog-prince cutter from the lunch punch set, but didn’t use the crown to make it more “boyish” for Cam. He didn’t like the crown on it, lol. He had a turkey sandwich and I cut eyes out of mozza cheese and stamped them with my food-safe black marker. He also had some crinkle cut carrots made using my crinkle cutter and a silicone muffin cup with mini pretzels.

Sorry about the bad lighting on this one. It gets dark at about, oh, 5:00pm here now and it totally sucks. I’m usually photographing my bento’s in less than great light lately. Anyway, Kirsten had this lego lunch box for her afternoon nutrition break. It held a square sealed sandwich filled with egg salad. I put a cute piece of elephant baran on top for easy decoration. It also held a silicone muffin cup with sliced cucumbers, and a sliced cheesestring. The smaller innner lego container held a box of yogurt-covered raisins.

And lastly, this cute little bear bento was for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break. One section held a circle-cut ham sandwich with a cute piece of bear baran on top for easy decoration. The other section held a silicone muffin cup with sliced cucumbers and some sliced baby carrots.

Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:

      I pack their lunches in insulated lunch bags and always pack 2 ice packs in each one. It seems to work well because their ice packs are still partially frozen when they come home from school at the end of the day. I hope that helps!

      Hi Liz! I live in a city that borders with the U.S., so we do buy a few of our grocery items over there. I buy my turkey bologna in the U.S. For some reason I can’t seem to find it at our grocery stores here. I thought it was just my stores, but maybe it’s harder to find than I thought. That’s so weird. It’s so easy to find in the U.S. I usually buy oscar meyer turkey bologna.

      Thanks Jill! We go to the US quite often for groceries too so I will look when I go in a couple of weeks (I avoid crossing right around American Thanksgiving)!
