A Sweet Little Snack Bento for Ben

The boy gets hungry after taekwondo. And before taekwondo. And probably during taekwondo.

And at a whole host of other times during the day.

He's a growing boy and eats like one! We do a lot of simple snack boxes throughout the day to keep him hopefully semi-full and at least eating healthy. After his taekwondo class, he often has to wait for our class (another hour), then the drive home and dinner prep (another hour total) to eat, so it's a delicate balance between bringing him a full dinner or just a good healthy snack.

This time, we opted for a nice healthy snack.


He has a parmesan zucchini muffin, topped with a cute cheddar bunny (sugar eyes, mozzarella nose). He has some deli turkey rolls, with a few of his favorite picks to hold them in place, and a mixture of fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries & blackberries) plus purple grapes. Lots of his favorites in this box.

And a cute Ben story--at church the other week, they made collages of their favorite foods (maybe something related to feeding the multitudes with 5 loaves/2 fishes?). Anyhow, Ben comes home with his, with the typical pictures of cookies, ice cream, and ... a zucchini. Zucchinis are his favorite vegetable you know.

  6. Thanks girls!

    Those picks were from California, a friend brought them back for me. We have a few little stores in Dallas, but nothing to the extent of CA. Wilton usually has cute stuff available at regular craft stores.

    ~julybentos Bienvenue! J'adore rencontrer les nouveaux amis de bento!
