toddler bentos: nibble tray

For months and months now my nibble tray was missing. I emptied out my bento cabinets in search of it, and still, it was lost. And then the weekend before Halloween I was looking through my bin of sprinkles (it's a collection, yo) and there it was. I have no idea how it ended up there, but I imagine my toddler tornado (aka Tyler) had something to do with it.  I'm so glad to have it back, and it's been put to use a lot since being reunited.


A trio of bento-ish nibble trays...

- grape halves (they were big ones!) and cheddar cheese scraps
- clementine segments

Inside the third nibble tray:
- strawberries
- jack cheese pieces and Annie's organic bunny snack mix
- carrot pieces and a couple organic yogurt covered pretzels with craisins
- cucumber chunks

Happily, Tyler seems to think the nibble tray is nifty too. Just yesterday he saw it sitting next to the sink and pointed to it while plaintively whining, "dat one! dat one!". :)

LOVE the nibble trays - do you know where I could find some? This would be a great idea for my snackaholic girl. :)

I've never seen one at a "real" store. I ordered mine from Amazon!

We ordered ours from Amazon about a year ago after seeing it on your blog and my 3.5 year old STILL loves it!!

I send it to her Mom's Day Out "school" 2xs per week. Since she will not eat sandwhiches (she's weird, I know) this is the perfect box to fill with "finger foods". Her fave is when I put pretzel sticks in the long openings on each end and send some hummus in the green part of the tray for dipping! :)

Thank you, thank you for introducing me to this great tray!! :)

We love the nibble tray as well. I ordered it last year after seeing it on your site.

I am totally jealous that your toddler will eat those veggies. Not mine. Not even in her nibbler tray.

He loves his veggies! I can't get him to eat an egg to save my life though. :)

Love that tray! Perhaps Santa will bring one for my picky toddler. I'm hoping bento lunches will interest him enough into trying more new things. Your blog is full of inspiration-thanks for sharing! :)
