Easy Toddler Bento Lunch Idea

One of the cool products Chobani sent me for the lunch series we are creating was the Chobani Tots Greek Yogurt Pouches.  We received the Winnie the Pooh ones, which come in either Banana-Pumpkin or Mango-Spinach.

I definitely wanted to create an easy toddler lunch to show them off, and, with my sweet little friends moving nearby, I finally have reason to MAKE toddler lunches again!


Bentos are awesome for toddler meals, especially with separate compartments and small bites of their favorite foods.  For older toddlers, using mini food forks, like these Pooh ones, makes for a great *supervised* fine motor skill activity.  The Pooh picks were a gift from a friend in Japan, but there are plenty of other varieties on Amazon.

In this lunch, we have a peanut butter sandwich, cut into bite sized squares with a FunBites cutter.  You can substitute whatever fillings your little one likes.  The two side dishes hold chunks of strawberries and grapes, quartered for safety purposes.  This lunch is packed in a Sassy On-The-Go Feeding Set box, with separate lids for each of the smaller containers

We added a Chobani Tots Banana & Pumpkin Greek Yogurt Pouch and accented the food with little Winnie the Pooh forks.  My kids loved picking up food with tiny forks when they were little and it helps with all sorts of hand-eye coordination development.
