So you're looking to pack a lunch for your toddler or your 17 year old high school senior/college sophomore who eats like a toddler? I've got you covered!

Chef Salad Bento Lunch

Always a favorite for my girl--a big salad in lieu of sandwiches or other main courses for lunch.

We don't do anything special for these, each one is a bit different based on what is in the fridge, but I never have any complaints.

Mini Quesadilla Bento Lunch

A little bit of fun for my girl last week, since we still had some mini tortillas in the freezer.

What could be better than using mini tortillas to make mini quesadillas?

Extra Simple Sandwich Bento Lunch

I'm still having fun trying to figure out how much food the boy might need for a day.

Generally speaking, I make one lunch, then add in plenty of separate snacks and things for him to enjoy as he goes about his day.  Long ago, I taught both kids about eating perishable items first, so we don't have any food waste issues.  If food comes home (unlikely), it's shelf stable items.

Quick Goodbyn Croissant Bento Lunch

Back to school time with a high school boy means figuring out more ways to pack more food.

I've been using our Goodbyn Hero box a lot lately, since it holds the most food out of ay of the boxes I own.  I'm thinking I may need to order another one, so it's easier to pack daily.

Mini Tortilla Wraps Bento Lunch

Week two of school is wrapping up and I have now found the most perfect sandwich wraps!  (All puns are totally intended.)

I found these teeny tiny tortillas at the grocery and knew I had to buy a pack to try.  I was right--they made the cutest little wrap sandwiches.  Next up, I'm making mini-quesadillas with them.

Back to School Bento Lunch

Once upon a time, I started this blog, in order to catalog the lunches I made for my daughter for a friend of mine who wanted to see them.  Our kids had just started kindergarten that year and I was worried that mine might not have enough time to eat.

A whole lot of years later, and today is the first day of senior year for that kindergartener.  She will graduate high school this year as well as earn her associate's degree.  But she still needs lunch, so I had to pack favorites for her.
