The Week in Bentos: November 18-21, 2008

by Wendy Copley on November 21, 2008

My kid is not eating anything these days! Frankly, I’m not sure why he’s still alive. I’ve read that a person can survive without food for two weeks, so maybe he’s just not far enough into his hunger strike yet. If things don’t change soon I’m afraid I’ll be posting an obituary along with photos of bento boxes next Friday.

OK, so I jest….but only a little. One wonders why I bother to pack these lunches in the mornings, just to unpack them again in the evenings.

Tuesday: peas, crackers, a cheese elephant, salami, a rice star and some grapes. As far as I can tell the only thing Wyatt ate from this lunch was the salami.

Why is there a hand in that photo? Well, my dad told me the other day that he’s having a hard time judging the size of the bento boxes we have, so I asked Wyatt to put his hand in the photo for scale. Here’s another one where he’s holding his lunch box. I’m not sure this is a great way to judge the size though because the fisheye effect from the lens is making his lunch look pretty gigantic in this photo.

Anyway….

Wednesday his lunch had a rice bear with a catsup face, strawberries and little smokies. There is also a container of catsup down below the sausages for dipping. Guess what Wyatt ate from this lunch.

One strawberry.

Seriously.

Thursday I gave him corn, strawberries and a thermos with buttered alphabet noodles with some peas and garlic mixed in.  He at the strawberries. At least he ate all five of them this time.

Today I was in a super big rush to get out of the house because I had to be somewhere by 9 am so this was the fastest lunch I’ve put together in a long time. Hot dog bun, strawberries, grapes and baked tofu. He ate the bun! He ate the bun! And the strawberries. Woooo!

    Well at least he is eating strawberries. Maybe he is saving room for his Thanksgiving dinner. The only thing Ben wants these days are White Cheddar Cheez-it crackers and blueberries. I love the rice bear.

    I’ll say it again… your cousin Willy grew to 6′ living on air. It’s frustrating to deal with but there you have it. I think that little rice bear is adorable too.

    oh your son is adorable……….and those bentos are way cool! if i were his classmate, i’d want to see what was in his lunch bag every day.

    dinner at my house is torture sometimes……..my little boy always complains about food if it’s not hot cheetos or cookies so naturally he has to sit by himself at the table until he finishes his food. i sound like a broken record but i say it over and over “do you know that there are kids who don’t have food to eat? you are so lucky to have the food in front of you.” they will understand one day.

    I just found your site and got so excited about making these lunches for my little boy! He’s only 8 months right now, but it’s never too early to start planning! Thanks for the great ideas!
    What kind of bentos do you use and can you tell me where you find them?

  • Beautiful work. I love the way the bento boxes make everything so tidy. And I get so frustrated to unpack a much less lovely creation at the end of the day. Grrr.

  • Too cute. (I got distracted by your bento tag because I just received my very first bento box in the mail. I’m a late adopter, what can I say?)
