I don’t Bento

I tried…when the girls first started preschool I had visions of Bento boxes. I was a Pinterest Bento box pinning machine. Pinterest has a lot of ideas and I was going to try them all! And then it happened, the first night I had to pack lunch. I was armed with cookie cutters, colorful cupcake wrappers, and entertaining toothpicks! 3 hours later, I was done…and not just with packing lunch. I was done. Bento boxes are for the birds…or just not for me!

I decided to keep things simple. Just pack healthy foods and hope they eat them! Here is what our lunch boxes look like. Every day my girls get a fruit and vegetable along with other things

Here are some of my favorite lunch products!
Stonyfield Yogurt 
Kashi Snack Bars
Kashi Crackers
Horizon String Cheese
