Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope everyone is having an awesome weekend! Valentine’s day is over, and tomorrow is a holiday in Ontario – Family Day. Oh how I love three day weekends!! I wish every weekend was 3 days. It’s amazing how much more I can get done with just 1 little extra day. Here are some recent bento boxes the kiddos have enjoyed….
First up is this super cute Lego bento box that Camden enjoyed for his afternoon nutrition break. He had some fancy sliced cucumbers, a sandwich with the crusts cut off, a silicone muffin cup with sliced cheesestring and some mini pretzel twists. On top of the sandwich is my sorry attempt at cutting out a lego guy head out of cheese. It’s not perfect, but you get the point, lol. I drew on the face with food-safe markers. Cam LOVED this lunch!
Next up is a super easy bento in our 4-square lock and lock container that Kirsten enjoyed for her afternoon nutrition break. I removed 2 of the containers and put in half a turkey sandwich. I stuck a piece of panda baran on top for instant cuteness! The other squares held goldfish crackers, and crinkle-cut cucumbers with a cute panda pick!
Here’s a really simple bento that Kirsten enjoyed for her morning nutrition break and it’s packed in our 4-section flat tray bento box. The sections held honeydew melon cut into small flowers, a blueberry muffin bar, some pretzel sticks, and some sliced fresh pineapple with a cute bunny pick.
Next up is a green yumbox that Camden enjoyed for his afternoon nutrition break. The protein section held turkey bologna roll-ups with an elephant fork pick. The grains section held Canada Maple Leaf Ritz crackers (Go Canada Go!!), the veggie section held a silicone muffin cup with peas and flower-cut carrots, the fruit section held fresh green grapes and the dairy section held sliced cheesestring. I put some fruit chew snacks in the centre.
And lastly, here’s a cute lunchbots bento box that Kirsten enjoyed for her morning nutrition break. One section held a square silicone cup with a sliced blueberry muffin bar, the other section held a couple naval orange slices, some fresh strawberries and some fresh blueberries with a bee pick.
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
I can’t believe it’s February already. Where did last month go?! Time is flying. I made some fun bento boxes for the kiddos this week and they really loved them. Here they are…
What does the fox say?? As annoying as this song may be, my little guy learned it at school and just loves it. I wanted to make him a special little lunch and he got a real kick out of it. I packed it in an EasyLunchbox. The large section held a turkey sandwich and I made a fox on top with cheddar and mozza cheese, carrots, a red grape, and black currants. The other sections held red grapes, and a silicone container of sliced cucumbers with cute music picks.
Here’s a special lunch I made for my little lady for her afternoon nutrition break. The largest section held a turkey sandwich with the crusts cut off. I used a large letter ‘K’ cookie cutter and some cheddar cheese to give her a personalized sandwich. The other sections held a silicone muffin cup with sliced cheesestring and a cute flower pick, some mini pretzel twists, and some fancy cut cucumbers.
This pretty pink yumbox was for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break. The protein section held black forest ham, the grains section held mini whole-wheat crackers, the dairy section held strawberry yogurt, the fruit section held sliced kiwi, fresh blueberries and a flower pick, and the veggie section held crinkle cut cucumbers and sliced baby carrot. I put a few jellybeans in the middle for a treat!
This easy little bento was for Kirsten’s morning nutrition break and was packed in a lunchbots pico container. One section held a silicone cup with a sliced muffin bar, the other section held sliced naval oranges, fresh strawberries, blueberries and a cute ladybug pick.
And this easy little bento was for Camden’s morning nutrition break. It’s packed in a blue steeltainer snack container. One section held a rectangle silicone muffin cup with a sliced granola bar. The other section held sliced naval oranges, fresh strawberries and a cute lion pick.

Here’s another adorable bento box from CuteZcute. I shared a baby penguin bento box with you last month, and now I’m showcasing the sweet baby owl. It’s an awesome 2 compartment bento box, holding a of 440 ml. (8 FL OZ). The top tier has a fitted lid and is 240 ml and the bottom tier is 200 ml. The iuncluded elastic strap helps secure the bento box pieces together. It is not leakproof. It is just so cute!
And here’s a fun baby owl bento lunch that I made for this baby owl bento box:
The top tier held a circle cut sandwich that I turned into an owl using 2 slices of baby carrot for the feet, 1 cucumber sliced in half for the wings, 2 mozza cheese circles and olives for the eyes, and sprinkles for the ears and nose. The bottom tier held fresh strawberries, and flower-cut cucumbers with baby carrot centers.

Happy Sunday morning! I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I’m getting back into the swing of making bento lunches for the kiddos after a much needed 2 week holiday over Christmas. The kids are enjoying having a little fun in their lunches again, which makes me happy. Here are some recent lunches they have enjoyed…
This bright and colourful yumbox was made for Kirsten’s afternoon nutrition break. In the protein section she had turkey bologna roll-ups with a cute bunny pick, the grains section held Canadian Maple Leaf Olympic edition Ritz crackers, the veggie section held a silicone muffin cup with peas and flower-cut carrots, the fruit section held fresh green grapes and the dairy section held a sliced cheesestring. I put a few Mott’s Fruitsations fruit snacks in the middle for a yummy treat!
This yummy bento is packed in a Lunchbots duo and was for Camden’s morning nutrition break. I made a fresh batch of homemade blueberry muffins last weekend and the kids really wanted one in their lunch on Monday morning. I gave Cam a homemade blueberry muffin and some mini pretzel twists, along with some fresh blueberries, and sliced starfruit with a cute panda bear pick.
You can find my delicious blueberry muffin recipe HERE.
Here is Kirsten’s version of the bento above for her morning nutrition break. It was packed in a cute two-tier polkadot bento box. In the bottom tier I put her homemade blueberry muffin. I filled the top tier with fresh blueberries, sliced starfruit and green grapes.
Here’s a Lego lunch box with a toadstool mushroom theme for Cam’s afternoon nutrition break. It held a whole sandwich with just the crusts cut off. I put some toadstool mushroom baran on top for instant cuteness – the baran sticks on nicely with a little dab of cream cheese. He had a rectangle silicone muffin cup with fresh blueberries and 2 toadstool mushroom picks. He also had baby carrots, sliced cheesestring and mini pretzel twists.
Finally, here’s another morning nutrition break bento for Camden packed in our Lock and Lock 4-square bento box. The sections held a Yoplait Minigo yogurt, a sliced cereal bar, fresh red grapes with a lion pick, and some goldfish crackers.

We were back to school this week, therefore, back to bento boxes. I slacked a bit in December with fancy lunches for the kids because I honestly was swamped with stuff to do. I found myself making the kids lunches late at night – rather than my regular time which is before supper. When I make them later than usual, I can’t photograph them. It also doesn’t help that we’re in the dead of Winter here and it gets dark at about 4:30-5:00pm. I’m not joking. I go to work in the dark and I go home in the dark. This is definitely my LEAST favourite time of year. I did manage to make a few cute lunches for the kiddos this week, and here they are…..
First up is a fun bento box for Kirsten featuring Keroppi the frog from Hello Kitty and packed in her white Lego lunch box. She had a chicken sandwich with the crusts cut off and I stuck a cute Keroppi decorative topper on top for instant cuteness! She also had a silicone cup of blueberries with a cute froggy pick, 4 baby carrots, a sliced cheesestring and some pretzel twists.
Next up is a Lego lunch box bento that Camden enjoyed for his afternoon nutrition break. He had a chicken sandwich with the crusts cut off and a cute little bear on top for instant cuteness! I love cute that comes easy!! He had a mini blue lego box inside which contained fruit snacks. He also had baby carrots, sliced cucumbers and sliced naval oranges.
Here’s a fun little snack bento that Camden enjoyed for his morning nutrition break. It’s packed in our white steeltainer snack container.
