Bento box finally
Well the search is over.
As just after 3 weeks lunches are getting boring I have been on the lookout for a bento box so I could start getting a little more creative. And have less food come home uneaten. After searching Target, Container Store, and on and on I happened upon the prefect items at TJ Max.
We were ready for our first bento. It was a hit and this was just with leftovers. I am excited too.
MB is such an eat with your fingers girl. She is going to eat so much better this way. For example. I set out grapes, cut up strawberries she digs in. I cut up a chicken breast into bite size pieces she devours the whole thing. I leave it for her to cut herself she eats about half. Maybe it is lazy, or probably just distraction. Yet I know the bite size will be a success for the year ahead.
I also found a great blog, Bento Lunch. Everyday they post a new creation. After a few days of seeing the cute cut-out cheese slices I think I am going to have to start looking for cookie cutters. Love it.
This bento is not fancy, but it was our first! So much better than the lunchables she is always begging for too!
Anyone else bento box? What are your favorite things to put in the lunch box? Always looking for some new healthy and fun ideas!
