Anyway, here's his lunch for tomorrow...
Top Box - 1/2 clementine with raisins, goldfish crackers, pb&j roll ups
Bottom Box - carrots and celery with ranch in the snowman cup, string cheese, pretzel grids, 1/2 clementine
I say I'm getting better at packing bento lunches because I'm starting to realize all the things that I can make or use to fill up the box to keep it from shifting and making a mess. Now, bentos aren't about how much you can stuff in a box. It's about WHAT you put into the box. Is it healthy? Yummy? Fun to eat? All of these things rank right up there on the healthy, yummy and fun lists for Timothy. We're trying celery with ranch tomorrow. Celery with pb hasn't been a hit yet, although I've enjoyed eating what he doesn't finish. :)
Also, I think bentos are about having a compact meal without a lot of leftovers. I usually end up sending separate containers of things for Timothy to eat for lunch, but I think all he's going to need for tomorrow is this box, a juice cup and he'll be set. That's nice to know. Less to wash tomorrow evening!
***Update Dec. 1 - I added this bento lunch to Bentolunch.com's What's for lunch Wednesday blog. Shannon herself does some amazing bentos! Check out all the fun bentos from other families! :)
