Little Bat Boiled Egg

Kid's Lunch 01/23/14

Jelly sandwiches, pumpkin muffin, boiled egg (with a fish container holding salt), tortilla chips.

My four year old will only eat the yolk of the egg if he can sprinkle a little salt on it. This is my first time sending salt in his lunch. It should be interesting to see if the fish container makes it back home!

Half Circle Sandwich

Toddler Lunch  01/10/13

Half circle sandwich filled with jelly; banana; blueberry zucchini muffin, rolled up egg omelette. I added a cheese stick later.

I've been experimenting with a circle sandwich cutter/press made by Pampered Chef. It cuts through the bread much easier than the plastic cutters I've tried to use in the past.

Zucchini Carrot Muffin

Toddler Bento 02/17/12

French toast, banana, zucchini/carrot/oat muffin, and sweet potato hearts.

I tried a new muffin recipe to sneak some more veggies into our son's lunch. He normally enjoys zucchini muffins. This recipe includes zucchini, carrots, wheat flour, and oat flour. (Recipe here.) Last night he would not finish the muffin at dinner, so I wonder if his Spidey-sense tingled at all the added healthy stuff in the muffin. We'll see if he eats one today in his lunch!

I'm also trying this new Lock & Lock box which is part of a lunch set. The other one from the set has dividers. I love them both!

Bento Buddy Container

Toddler Bento 01/27/12

Ravioli, Babybel cheese, banana, pineapple, and clementine segments.

The blue container is a "Bento Buddy" from Laptop Lunches. It fits nicely in this square Lock & Lock. My other Lock & Locks are shorter, so the Bento Buddy wouldn't fit in them.
