The Week in Bentos: May 19-23, 2014

by Wendy Copley on May 26, 2014

We are so close to the end of the school year! Only two more weeks!! Of course, that arbitrary date isn’t going to change much for me as far as lunch packing goes because Augie will be attending his preschool summer program and I am currently on a lunch-packing strike for Wyatt’s lunches (more about that in last week’s post). As far as lunches go things will be the same, but I’m excited about having some more relaxed days.  In any case, here are the lunches I packed for Mr. A this week:

I kicked this week off with a colorful Yumbox lunch: Funley’s peanut butter pretzel granola balls*, mango chunks, cucumber sticks, turkey meatballs and heirloom cherry tomatoes. Augie’s comment on this lunch box after school: “I had a good lunch for ONCE in my life.” Cheeky little monkey!

* The granola balls were from a box of samples that Funley’s sent me.



Tuesday, he had whole wheat crackers, peanut butter banana bites (from Weelicious Lunches), amazingly sweet nectarine chunks with kitty picks to eat them, and Persian cucumber sticks.  This was packed in our PlanetBox Rover.

On Wednesday he had the teddy bear’s picnic lunch I packed for last week’s 3 Tools, 4 Lunches post. You can get more details about it here. This was packed in a Laptop Lunches box. (TIP: Laptop Lunches is offering a coupon code for 15% off through 5/24/14! The code is: CAMP31)



Thursday’s lunch was packed with bright fruits and veggies and I loved all the colors in the lunch. He had a salami “rose” in an orange silicone baking cup, a few crackers, strawberries with a bunny pick, blueberries, carrots and snap peas. I also added snap pea and tomato food dividers for a little extra color and cuteness. This was packed into a single layer of our Bentgo box.



I pulled out our square Lock & Lock box for Friday’s lunch. He had pineapple sausage slices, blueberries, sugar snap peas and a blueberry cereal bar. It looked pretty plain after I finished loading the box up, so I added some cute food dividers to it, too.

Have a great week! Happy bento-ing!
