Bento lunch for a spunky two-year-old:
This is a bento lunch for my 2yo daughter to take to preschool. It's a pretty typical bento for her.
- On the left side there are cheese cubes and a half sandwich of peanut butter & jelly. Luckily there are no allergies in her class so we don't have to avoid sending in an old fashioned PB&J.
- On the right side there are fresh blueberries in the top dish with a granola bar and some pretzels to the side.
The box I used to pack this lunch can be found really easily, it's made by the Sassy brand and you can order it from Amazon. I think it's also available at Babies-R-Us, at least I remember seeing one there a year or so ago when I was there last. It comes with 3 inner compartments and each one has its own tight-fitting lid to keep contents from dripping. I don't usually use the inner lids unless I'm packing something extra messy - which I try not to do for preschool. This box works very well for my daughter's lunch as it holds just the right amount of food for her. On this day the box came home with only 2 pretzels left uneaten.
Bonus, this box fits perfectly inside her prized piggie lunchbox. :)
