this week in bento boxes

Happy Saturday everyone! I’m getting back into the routine of making school lunches and the kids have been loving every single minute of it. Here’s this week in bento boxes…

This easy bento was packed in our new framboise (raspberry pink) yumbox. We just loved our pomme (apple green) yumbox so much that we had to get a pink one too! I packed some turkey breast in the meat section, some butterfly crackers in the grain section, some cucumbers and carrots in the veggie section, some cubed marble cheese in the dairy section and some raspberries and blueberries in the fruit section – with an adorable little pick. I added some colourful chocolate covered sunflower seeds for a treat!

This fun lunch was packed in our lego lunch box for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break. She had a sandwich (I cut the crusts off) topped with a cute piece of frog baran. I packed a smaller lego container inside and filled with fruit snack chews for a treat. There was a rectangle silicone cup with sliced cheesestring, some baby carrots and some sliced cucumbers with a cute frog pick.

This cute bento was for Camden’s morning nutrition break and was packed in our blue snack steeltainer. One section held a rainbow chip granola bar and a few blueberry yogurt-covered pretzels. The other section held fresh strawberries, fresh raspberries and fresh blueberries with cute whale and penguin picks.

This snack bento was packed for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break and it’s packed in our new pear-shaped bento box. The divided section held a blueberry muffin bar. The other section held a peeled clementine orange with a leaf pick, and some fresh blueberries and red grapes.

And lastly, a fun yumbox for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break. The meat section held sliced turkey sausage, the grain section held whole-wheat crackers, the veggie section held alternating slices of cucumber and carrot, the dairy section held cubed marble cheese and the fruit section held a peeled clementine orange with a leaf pick and some fresh blueberries. I added some rainbow chocolate-covered sunflower seeds for a treat!

Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:

    Just became a follower and your website is adorable! Your kids must get so excited to open their lunchboxes each day. Do you have a favorite bento container to recommend for someone who’d like to get started making cute lunches?

    Thanks!

      Hi Wendi! Thanks so much! If you’re just getting into bento, I would probably start with something basic that can still be used if bento isn’t your thing. I like EasyLunchboxes. You can make some really cute bento boxes in them, and then if bento isn’t your thing, you can still use them to pack regular lunches. I’d do that before jumping into the cutesy stuff. I hope that helps!

      Thanks Rhonda! The butterfly crackers are made by Pepperidge Farm (the same company that makes goldfish crackers) and they are sold at major grocery stores. They are called “Golden Butter.” I hope that helps!
