The Week in Bentos: June 4-8, 2012

by Wendy Copley on June 8, 2012

Woo hoo! Schooooool’s out for summer! I’m heading over to pick Wyatt up from school in about a half an hour and I’m so relieved to kiss this school year good-bye. Can you relate? Here are the lunches my kids ate this last, wonderful week of school:


2nd Grader Bento #604

Monday Wyatt’s lunch was packed in the Laptop Lunch box (as usual): strawberries, raspberries, mini Saltine crackers that I found at the store over the weekend, green grapes and organic, nitrate and nitrite free hippie hot dogs.


Preschool Bento #279

On Tuesday, Augie had turkey meatballs, peas, mini Saltines, grapes and a few strawberries we picked from our garden before school.

This is what his lunch box looked like when he came home. He eats everything in his lunch more often than not, so this looks pretty typical.

2nd Grader Bento #605

Wyatt had meatballs, Saltines and grapes too, but I also included some carrot sticks and bean dip and a tub of berry-applesauce.

And here’s what his lunch looked like at the end of the day. He typically leaves most of his fruits and veggies and today was no exception. He did eat the rest as an after school snack though.


Preschool Bento #280

On Wednesday, Augie had a peanut butter and apple butter sandwich, goldfish grahams, peaches, snap peas and mango chunks. I decorated the sandwich with a peanut heart, too. Sorry to all of you who can’t send nuts in your kids’ lunches. I’m truly not trying to taunt you.


Preschool Bento #281

Augie’s lunch was packed in our kitty bento box (similar to this panda one at Amazon). He had leftover barbecue chicken, goldfish crackers, cucumber slices, a mini bell pepper and blueberries.

Last Lunch of Second Grade Bento #606

Wyatt had baked teriyaki tofu, a Laughing Cow cheese wedge, carrots and bean dip, blueberries and half a hotdog bun with apple butter spread inside.


Preschool Bento #282

Today I packed Augie’s lunch in the Lego bento box: He had a peanut butter and banana sandwich, blueberries, carrot sticks, mini bell peppers and mini Saltine crackers. Some of my Lego guys tried to get in on this lunch. The animal researcher tried to add some extra banana to the sandwich while her monkey was trying to sneak some of it out of the lunch. That mad scientist was just up to no good at ll with his glowing green potion. Then, a bandit tried to steal the whole thing! It was extremely difficult to take a picture with all that going on this morning, let me tell you!
