The Week in Bentos: July 18-22, 2011

by Wendy Copley on July 22, 2011

We are back on a regular camp schedule this week. Phwew! I like having the kids home with me, but I also really like having a break for a few hours per day too.

Monday

Day Camp Snack #159

On Monday, Wyatt’s day camp snack was a rose made from strips of deli ham and a bunch of farmer’s market berries.

Tuesday

Toddler Bento #130

Augie’s lunch was a heart-shaped onigiri rice ball, strawberries, bing cherries, ham and turkey roll-ups and some peas. He still swallows the pits if I give him whole cherries, so I pitted them and cut them in half.
Day Camp Snack #160

Wyatt’s day camp snack was a whole wheat mini bagel with cream cheese on it and strawberries. This was  the first time I’ve given him cream cheese since he was about 3 years old.  I’ve offered it to him every time we’ve had it in the house for those 3 years, but he only now decided he likes it again. Never give up, people!

Wednesday

Toddler Bento #131

On Wednesday Augie took leftover spaghetti with butter and garlic, turkey roll-ups, peas, more cherries and some undetermined soy cheese animals. I’m not sure what those are. Cows? Dogs? Your guess is as good as mine. The leftover cheese scraps were packed under the turkey.

Day Camp Snack #161

Wyatt loved his bagel the day before, so he got another one of those along with cherries. (If he wants them pitted he has to do it himself, which he did.)

Thursday

Toddler Bento #132

Augie had an extra day care day this week as a make-up for being home last week, so of course he needed a lunch. He had rainbow goldfish crackers, a turkey sandwich cut into a train shape, some navy beans and strawberries.

Day Camp Lunch #464

I decided to capitalize on my extra day of day care and sent Wyatt to camp all day too. He needed lunch and snacks so I broke out the Laptop Lunch box for the first time this summer. I filled it up with pretzel sticks, a Laughing Cow cheese wedge, a chocolate no-bake cookie (recipe coming soon!), strawberries, and turkey sandwiches cut into bat shapes.

Friday

Day Camp Snack #162

There were some repeats from yesterday’s lunch in today’s camp snack: strawberries, Laughing Cow cheese and whole wheat pretzels.

    Personally, those look like tofu bears to me.
    IDK about you.

  • What great ideas! My daughter has been begging for bento box lunches but I never knew what to put in them.

    Hi! I haven’t been visiting the site for a while since it’s summer but came back just now! Love the changes. And fresh (summery) bento ideas are great as always. Thanks Wendy!

    You know what? My little comp did not display the margines…. That”s why it looked like there was a new design. Oops!
