Back to school = back to bento-making. I’m not going to lie, I did enjoy my little break from making school lunches. It was nice to get back to routine this week too though. The kids NEEDED to get back to routine. Here are some recent bento boxes I’ve made, as well as a couple new boxes!
Here’s a fun new bento box I got for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break. It’s a circle-dome shaped box with 2 tiers each with their own lid to keep everything separate. It also comes with an included ice pack that fits on the inside to help keep everything cold! In the top tier I put a sliced cereal bar, and in the bottom tier I put flower-cut cantaloupe and kiwi with some blackberries. I used a cute flower stem pick in it too! Kirsten loves this new container!
Here’s another colourful bento for my kiddo’s morning nutrition break. One tier held a lovely fruit salad with orange segments, raspberries, plums and a cute pick. The other tier held rectangle silicone muffin cups with a sliced granola bar and alphabet pretzels.
This was a fun lunch packed in our Easylunchbox for the kiddos afternoon nutrition break. I used a dino sandwich cutter to make the sandwich (it makes 2, so each kid got one). I also added a cute little sun made of cheese and carrot. The other sections held a silicone muffin cup filled with yogurt covered pretzels and sliced cucumbers with an adorable tree trunk pick.
For those who love their EasyLunchboxes, they’ve come out with 4 new bright colours:
I definitely plan on getting them!
Here’s another fun new bento box I bought. It’s an adorable froggy-shaped box with an included froggy ice pack that goes on top. It’s really awesome and the kids have really enjoyed this box. It has 2 tiers – 1 tier held a circle-cut sandwich with a keroppi the frog (from Helly Kitty) on top. I also snuck in a few baby tomatoes and pretzel twists. The other tier held flower cut cucumbers and carrots.
And lastly, a bento for the kids morning nutrition break packed in our favourite steeltainer. One section held a rectangle silicone muffin cup with a sliced granola bar, and the other section held flower-cut cantaloupe with a cute pick!
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
