Preschool Bento #213: July 14, 2009

Tuesday’s lunch consisted of blueberry mini-bagel (cut in half and stacked in the box) orange chunks, baked tofu, and blueberries.

This lunch was packed in yet another new “bento” box that I picked up a week or so ago at Dollar Tree. They had Strawberry Shortcake ones too. These weren’t marketed as bento boxes, but they’re sized perfectly. The one concern I have about this box is the quality of the plastic. It was made in China and I’m sure it’s chock full o’ BPAs, which we generally try to avoid. You can see that I’m still using it though, so obviously I’m not that concerned.

Wednesday’s lunch had a gigundo strawberry, blueberries, a turkey hot dog, catsup for the hot dog and some cheez-its.

Thursday’s lunch had leftover noodles from dinner the night before tossed with a little butter, some garlic salt and a healthy sprinkle of parmesan cheese.See them up there? Ha, just kidding — they were in the thermos. This side car had some peas, blueberries and strawberries.

You know how some days all your kid wants to eat are beige foods? Well, Friday was one of those days. The best I could do to brighten up the bun, banana, and tofu packed into Wyatt’s lunch was to decorate the bun with food safe markers.
