The Week in Bentos: July 26-30, 2010

Monday

Day Camp Snack #123: July 26, 2010

For Monday’s snack, I sent Wyatt to camp with a cereal bar (cut in half and stacked), some blueberries and his beloved salami.

Tuesday

Toddler Bento #35: July 27, 2010

The main part of my toddler’s lunch for day care was a stuffed pepper half that was leftover from dinner the night before. I chopped the pepper up and mixed it in to the stuffing so it would be easy for him to eat. Blueberries and peas went along as the side dishes.

Wyatt’s snack was a biscuit (leftover from breakfast), some deli turkey and a yogurt tube.

Wednesday

Toddler Bento #36: July 28, 2010

On Wednesday, Augie had melon, strawberries, a banana chocolate chip muffin (pulled from the freezer) and leftover pasta and chicken in his lunch.

The five-year-old’s snack also had cantaloupe (his new super-favorite), a muffin and some deli turkey for protein.

Thursday

Toddler Bento #37: July 29, 2010

Augie had an extra day of day care this week to make up for last week when we were on vacation. His lunch had: chicken, green beans, a rice ball, blueberries and half an avocado. I dabbed the surface of the avocado with a little lemon juice and then wrapped it in plastic wrap to keep it from browning.

Wyatt (and Lego Woody) enjoyed blueberries and salami for snack. “There’s a blueberry in mah boot!” says Woody!

Friday

Seriously — this is so annoying! I took a bunch of pictures of Wyatt’s snack but I didn’t notice the memory card wasn’t in the camera. The snack today was pretzels, cantaloupe chunks and some deli turkey. You’ll have to use your imagination to visualize it, but I can assure you that it was extremely elegant in it’s graphic simplicity.

  • I was so meant to find your blog!!! First, I was hunting for Robot party theme ideas……and in the back of my mind, my August goal was to start ideas for Bento box lunches for my two boys! You have given me such inspiration!!!

  • Hi Irene! Thank you for your nice comment. My camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XSi.

  • Fantastic! I'd love to see pictures of your robot party or any bentos you make.

  • Very, very cute. But you have to pack a lunch for daycare? I'm suddenly feeling very grateful that our home daycare provider cooks awesome, wholesome food every day and totally lets me off the hook.

  • Yep! Our daycare provider provides breakfast and snacks, but she asks the parents to bring in lunches so she knows all the kids will have something that they'll enjoy and be comfortable with for lunch.
