It’s no secret that I love my Yumbox lunch boxes. I love their bright and colourful design and I love how easy they are to pack. The sections help take the guess-work out of what to pack in the kid’s lunches and it also ensures that my kids are eating a well-balanced meal. When I am exhausted and packing their lunches at the end of the day, this is my go-to box. Here are a couple boxes that the kids enjoyed today:

Happy Saturday night everyone! The kids and I are watching Frozen for the millionth time (LOVE it!) and I thought I’d take a few minutes to share some recent bento boxes the kiddos have enjoyed…..
This first bright and colourful bento was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break and packed in one of our bright EasyLunchboxes. The large compartment held half a turkey and lettuce sandwich with a cute pink raccoon piece of baran. I also stuck in a marble cheesestring. The smaller compartments held a mini pear and a mini cucumber with pea pods. I added the matching pink raccoon pick for instant cuteness!
Camden had a very similar lunch for his afternoon nutrition break also packed in one of our EasyLunchboxes. The largest compartment held half a turkey and lettuce sandwich with a cute panda piece of baran and a soccer ball pick. I also stuck in a marble cheesestring. The smaller compartments held sliced strawberries, a mini cucumber with a panda pick and baby carrots.
This yummy bento was for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break and packed in a 4-section flat tray bento box. The sections held sliced strawberries and raspberries with a cute pick, pretzel goldfish crackers, a sliced cereal bar and a couple pieces of watermelon.
Lastly, here’s our lock and lock 4-square bento box that Camden had for his afternoon nutrition break. I removed 2 of the square containers and placed half a sandwich in the container. I put some fishy marble cheese cut-outs on top of the sandwich. The other 2 sections held fresh blueberries with a cute whale pick and some giant goldfish crackers.
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
It’s March break and I am definitely looking forward to a 1 week holiday from lunch-making. Don’t get me wrong, I love making fun lunches for my kids, but sometimes we all need a little break. Life has been pretty hectic with all the kids extracurriculars after school that I’ve been having a hard time getting it all done. My kids usual lunches have been less on the cute side and more on the quick and easy side. Here are a few recent lunches that the kiddos have enjoyed….
This cute owl bento is packed in an EasyLunchbox and Kirsten enjoyed it for her afternoon nutrition break. The main compartment held a full turkey, and lettuce sandwich. I made an owl on top of the sandwich with cheese, carrot and blueberries. I used a variety of bento cutters I had to make the owl. The other sections held fresh red grapes and a silicone cup with flower-cut cucumbers with leaf picks.
Here’s a fun yumbox that Camden enjoyed for his afternoon nutrition break. The protein section held ham roll-ups, the grains section held small whole-wheat crackers, the veggie section held crinkle cut cucumbers and sliced baby carrots, the fruit section held sliced strawberries with a cute froggy pick, and the dairy section held yogurt. I put some chocolate-covered sunflower seeds in the centre for a treat.
This bento box is a flat tray with 4 sections and Kirsten enjoyed it for her morning nutrition break. The sections held sliced pineapple rings, pretzel sticks, a blueberry muffin bar and fresh blueberries with a lion pick.
Finally, here’s a super easy bento packed in our lock and lock 4-square container that Camden enjoyed for his morning nutrition break. The squares held fresh red grapes, a minigo yogurt, a sliced cereal bar, and a sliced baby cucumber with a lion pick.
