The Week in Bentos: March 3-6, 2009

Preschooler Bento #149: March 3, 2009

Tuesday I sent baked tofu cut into chunks and arranged in a checkerboard, a piece of banana, some grapes and these weird crackers that Wyatt loves.

Wednesday’s lunch was not a bento, but it was a super hit with the boy. He got leftover mashed potatoes (in the Thermos), sliced strawberries and some Transformer fruit snacks (aka: candy). This isn’t the most balanced lunch I’ve ever packed and I don’t send total crap treats very often, but once in a while I think it’s nice to give your kid a meal that will make him deliriously happy. Nutrition be damned!

Thursday’s lunch box had a home made mini dinner roll, hot dog chunks, catsup (in the little yellow box) and strawberries. Looking at this photo after the fact, I realize that this lunch probably got completeley jumbled up on the trip to school. It’s not packed tightly enough for everything to stay in place, so it’s likely that everything¬† got tossed around in the box.

Today’s lunch was peaches with sprinkles, a bun (not the home made ones) and a new kind of baked tofu, honey sesame.

Have a great week everyone!
