we had a fun week last week with amelia’s bento boxes! there were lots of pretty new treats for her plus a full-size lunch on friday!! take a peek :]
monday was our first day using our new pea pod silicone mold. it was so fun & perfect for organizing her snack box.
for this box, i packed oreo crisps, strawberry slices, a handful of blueberries. the pea pod held baby carrot sticks & mozzarella cheese sticks. i filled the rest of the box with a ritz crackerful [which is amazing by the way].
on tuesday i went a little more simple with just a few treats tucked together.
fresh raspberries [with that adorable leaf pick -- love!], three dried plums, half a mini bagel with strawberry cream & tucked inside the little panda pot was a surprise — two chocolate covered pretzels!
ps — the dried plums came back. well, at least i tried….
wednesday was bright & fresh — a pretty fruit rainbow with a yogurt cloud + raindrop sprinkles :]
i had bought a little too much fruit earlier last week & needed to start clearing it out of the fridge. an all fruit bento was the perfect way to do it without wasting! PLUS amelia ate every last bite!
thursday was another simple, light & fresh snack box.
honeydew & blackberry medley, marble cheese hearts, two cherry tomatoes & three mini turkey, mayo + lettuce sandwiches on tortillas. i kind of wanted this yummy bento for myself!
our friday snack was breakfast inspired!
i packed half a banana & carved a sweet message in the peel [it darkens after exposure], a handful of fruit loops & some yogurt inside the little piggy pot.
once a month, amelia needs to take a lunch as the catering company doesn’t provide for that one day. i was excited to use this new two tiered, somewhat large bento box. amelia loved that it was an “oinky” — hah!
the bottom tier held a cream cheese & jam hello kitty sandwich on whole wheat bread. i set it on a bed of lettuce with some ranch dressing inside the little chick pot. amelia loves salad [i know, i'm totally blessed!]. the top tier had cheese triangles, strawberry slices, carrots & blueberries all tucked around a star full of chocolate chips + micro mini marshmallows. you just can’t have a friday without chocolate, right??

bento-ing has become such a fun little hobby for me each day. i love pulling out all of our supplies & dreaming up a fun new snack or lunch for amelia. her teachers tell me how much fun she has when she peeks inside each day!
i’ve had lots of emails & messages about where to purchase bento boxes + supplies. i’m happy to announce that i’ll be opening a bento supply shop later this week to help stock your own cabinets with all the fun boxes, picks & other cutesy supplies you’ll need to start a lunch revolution in your own home :] be sure to keep your eyes open for new products being listed! xo
