I went with the "four square" Lock & Lock box for Ethan's lunch today. Not exactly "bento", but it makes for a fast and easy waste-free lunch. As much as I love the bells and whistles and creativity of dabbling in bento lunches, at the heart of it my main goal is always a litter-free lunch. :)
Fishie crackers, pickles, cereal bar and homemade granola bite, raspberries.
Not pictured: Thermos Funtainer of ice cold grape juice, Gatorade and a huge bottle of ice water on a lanyard.
It's HOT and yesterday's Cub Scout activities left the poor boy dangerously close to severe dehydration. :( Hoping today he will be more cognizant of drinking water. Though I had given him a mommy lecture Monday morning about drinking water throughout the day, nothing could have sent home that message as strongly as him feeling like complete crapola for the rest of day like he did yesterday. If he's not in better shape after today's camp I'm not sure he will attend the rest of the week. Sigh.
