Usually we don't do bentos on the weekend, but we had some new items & some leftovers that are photo-worthy.
Both kids had bentos, but Ben was eating his by the time I finished taking a picture of Faith's so pretend there are two of these here!
The kids had:
Cream cheese & strawberry jam sandwiches on Nature's Own Multigrain Sandwich Rounds topped with cheese animals (Faith had giraffes, Ben had bears)
2 happy eggs halves, leftover from Ben's preschool picnic
Celery & carrot sticks, and cucumber flowers for Faith
Sweet Potato Cupcake with cream cheese icing and a few sprinkles
All packed in their EasyLunchboxes!
Minimal work for me, the eggs & cupcakes were already made and the watermelon & veggies were already chopped in containers in the fridge. Just had to make the sandwich and cut out a couple of cheese animals. Bentos don't have to be time consuming!
I think I am going to add this one to KidsDreamWork's "Happy & Healthy" contest. I know it's healthy (even the cupcake is homemade with sweet potato) and the kissing giraffes and smiling eggs make me happy. :o)
