The Week in Bentos: November 30 – December 4, 2009

Kindergarten Snack #45: November 30, 2009

Monday’s snack was dominated by a dinner roll. Do you see it? I do. I also put in some dried cranberries (in the red container), a couple of spritz cookies and the cutest little apple in the entire world.

I saw these lady apples at the grocery store and I had to get some for Wyatt’s lunches this week. He seemed really enthused about them when I brought them home, but he only ate one one day. I kept taking them out of his lunch box after school one day and putting them back in the next day. One would think I would have figured out that they weren’t going over so well sooner in the week, but no — I put one in his lunch every day, hoping he would eat it.

Tuesday:

Kindergarten Bento #266

Tuesday’s lunch was deli ham, an undesirable apple, carrot sticks and a dinner roll that is clearly labeled with food markers.

Kindergarten Snack #46

The snack had dried cranberries, a half banana and two spritz cookies.

Wednesday:

Kindergarten Bento #267

The primary component of Wednesday’s lunch was a thermos full of spaghetti and meatballs leftover from dinner the night before. The rest of his lunch and snack was garlic toast Christmas trees, an undesirable apple, pretzel sticks and dried cranberries.

Thursday:

Kindergarten Bento #268

I packed the laptop lunchbox with another stupid apple, carrot sticks, pretzel sticks, peaches, part of a whole wheat hamburger bun, baked tofu (cut with cookie cutters and colored with food markers) and two spritz cookies.

I put Christmas-y sprinkles on the peaches and the coloring on the green ones started to run immediately. Appetizing. Wyatt didn’t mind though so I’ll keep it up until he asks me not to.

Friday:

Kindergarten Lunch #269: December 4, 2009

I don’t usually take pictures of the lunches I give Wyatt at home, but this one was cute, so I thought I’d share it. Wyatt asked me to make him “Christmas tree tofu” (probably because we set our tree up the day before), so I cut and colored it with food markers

Kindergarten Snack #47

Snack was another dumb apple, pretzel sticks and a strawberry cereal bar (cut in half and stacked).

    I don't like whole apples, either. Would Wyatt be more receptive if you cut it into slices?
