The Week in Bentos: January 25-29, 2010

by Wendy Copley on January 29, 2010

Monday:

Kindergarten Snack #63: January 25, 2010

Monday’s snack was quick and dirty: tortilla chips and pineapple salsa (in the pink box). I also included a red heart candy because I love him.

Tuesday:

Tuesday’s lunch/snack was: a half mini baguette, strawberry jam (in the little blue box), a hand full of grapes, blueberries, some Pirate’s Booty, a little red heart candy (in the yellow box), a square of cornbread and cubes of pork tenderloin. You’ll be happy to know he was able to eat the Pirate’s Booty with no interference from the teachers at the club house.

Wednesday:

For Wednesday’s lunch I sent baked tofu cut into giraffe shapes, grapes, blueberries, a square of cornbread and ranch dressing and sugar snap peas.

I have to crow a little about the peas and the ranch dressing. This is one of my favorite snacks and I have offered some to Wyatt every time I ate it for years. I’m guessing that I started asking him if he wanted some when he was 2 years old. Usually he just flat out refused to try it. Very rarely he’d try it and tell me he didn’t like it. But I kept asking  just in case he changed his mind. The other day he was willing to try it, which in itself was a big deal. But then…

He ate it all!

And then he asked for more!

I don’t have the crazy expectation that he’ll eat it every time I give it to him just yet, but it’s a start! Keep the faith, people!

Kindergarten Snack #64: January 27, 2010

For snack, I made a blueberry muffin and banana monster. Raaaaahr!

Thursday:

Kindergarten Bento #286: January 28, 2010

One of Wyatt’s friends at school has a laptop lunchbox, so he’s been requesting that I use it to pack his lunch and snacks more frequently. Now that he’s eating more, it makes a lot of sense to use it and it’s pretty easy too, so I’m happy to oblige (when it’s not in the dishwasher, that is.). Thursday’s box had whole wheat pita wedges, toasted, spread with a smidge of butter and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, leftover pasta with red sauce from dinner the night before, blueberries, baked tofu cut with cookie cutters and colored with a food marker and a chunk of banana.

Friday:

Kindergarten Snack #65: January 29, 2010

Friday’s snack was a bun with a bunny drawn on it (BUNny! Get it? Ha ha! I amuse myself.) and some clementine wedges.

    I have to say I look forward to your photos of your bentos every week. I love the bento boxes, but unfortunately we don't have any place around here to buy them in Indiana. So, I live through yours. Thanks for your blog.

  • Hi Wendy! I've been lurking around your blog for a year or so now and just want to tell you that I adore it. It is an inspiration to me when making my own kids' lunches. And I just had a robot birthday for my now 4 year old boy and your nuts and bolts idea and the topper you made was heaven sent! Loved it and so did everyone else. Thanks!

  • Thank you so much, Crystal! Very nice of you to say.

  • Thanks! That's awesome that you did the robot party too. I went and checked out your blog and your bentos are terrific!
