The Week in Bentos: August 1-5, 2011

by Wendy Copley on August 5, 2011

Monday

Snack #167

Monday’s snack for camp was super simple — half a hot dog bun and a handful of strawberries.

Tuesday

Toddler Bento #135

On Tuesday, Augie had fancy teddy bear tofu, peas, a yaki onigiri rice ball from the freezer, a soy cheese bear and some strawberries.

Snack #168

Wyatt’s snack for camp was a stack of crackers with Batman-shaped cheese cut-outs and some strawberries. He didn’t eat it because he said it all got mixed together and was “disgusting”.

Wednesday

Toddler Bento #136

Augie had a mini hamburger bun decorated with a food safe marker, leftover pulled pork bbq, peas, blueberries and strawberries.

Day Camp Snack #169

Wyatt chose blueberries and crackers for his snack.

Thursday

Toddler Bento #137

Augie had an extra day of day care this week because I went out of town. He had leftover spaghetti from dinner the night before, strawberries, peas and blueberries all packed into the panda bento.

Big Kid Lunch #465

Wyatt also had a full day at camp, so he had lunch and snacks packed into the Laptop Luncbox: animal crackers, a few potato chips, deli ham roll-ups, strawberries, blueberries and a jam sandwich. The bottom half of the sandwich was made with strawberry jam and the top half was made with peach jam — both homemade.

Friday

I was out of town this morning so my husband made Wyatt’s snack for day camp and I have no idea what he packed!

  • I don’t really get how cheese & crackers & strawberries could be disgustingly mixed-together. Maybe in a blender? But not in the normal course of events.

  • I know, right? Kids are weird.

    I wish I could get my boys to eat tofu.  The 4 year old says it’s baby food.  The 1 year old spits it out.  Do you buy the rice balls at Trader Joes?

    I love both your adorable healthy lunches, and the fact that your son sometimes refuses to eat them for various reasons. It helps to know you have “real” kids : )

    I’m sure it’s been asked before, but how much food will the laptop lunchbox hold? And do you buy it with all the compartments, or are those silicone cupcake things? My son is hungry all the time and I know if I send him to school with lunch, he needs extra. LOL

  • The Laptop Lunch box holds a lot of food — particularly if you’re just using it to pack a lunch. I don’t remember how old your son is, but when I send it with my six-year-old, I’m usually packing food for his lunch *and* one or two snacks. It comes with the four rectangular boxes (plus a little dip box), but not with the silicone cupcake liners. I bought those separately and use them all the time.

    do your kids heat up the pulled pork? I am trying to come up with lunch ideas for my 10 and 7 year old for school and I do not know if they would eat cold pork. One has to watch her sugar and I thought this type of lunch would be good for her.

  • My younger son’s daycare provider heats his lunch for him, but my older son would either eat it cold or I might send the pork warm in a thermos. I was surprised by all the things my kids will eat cold though!
