We had some party mix leftover from Wyatt’s birthday party, so I gave him a bag of that for his snack, along with some clementine wedges. He also got one of the leftover juice boxes to drink.
Tuesday’s primary lunch component was leftover lamb from the night before. Wyatt has been really good about trying new foods lately, and even better, he’s been keeping an open mind when he does. For a while, every time he tried something new, he said he didn’t like it even if he likely did. (We could tell because he would swallow stuff that was OK, but gag and pretend to vomit on foods he really didn’t enjoy. Let me tell you how nice that behavior makes dinner.)
Anywho, he tried the lamb and declared it “super yummy” so I cubed some leftovers and threaded them onto skewers for little kebabs. He also had some strawberries, wedges of flat bread that I toasted and spread with a smidge of butter and garlic salt and a few cranberries to fill the last bit of space.
I call this “Snack Box: a Study in Orange”. At first, I didn’t mean to make an all orange snack, but after I pulled the cheese crackers and the clementines out I thought I’d just go all the way and use the orange box and the orange dividers. A few months ago I came across a blog where a mom was making color-themed bentos for her kid — red one day, orange the next, etc. Blue was really hard for her. I looked around a little and couldn’t find the blog to link up to it. Does anyone know who that was? It was really cool.
Wednesday’s lunch saw some baked teriyaki tofu, clementines, baby baguette and a few strawberries.
The snack also had some strawberries, dried cranberries and some cinnamon tortilla strips.
Superstar! This lunch had more tofu, peas, a cheese star and some garlic naan cut into star shapes.
Snack was clementines and pretzel sticks. I do not recommend combining these two in one box because the pretzels got super soggy and pretty gross, frankly — even with the food divider.
Friday’s snack was some cheese crackers, honey wheat pretzels and a half banana decorated with food markers.
