Fun Bento Lunch
Now that we’ve gotten half way through the school year it can sometimes be challenging to come up with creative lunch ideas. I find it helpful to mix up the lunch gear, bags and foods I use in order to keep things interesting.
In this lunch we’ve put together some California rolls, veggies, grapes and a side bag with rice crackers. I find that kids really enjoy the bento style when it comes to their lunches because it’s visually appealing, it keeps foods from touching and it just makes it more fun! There are all kinds of great lunch gear these days…I love using re-useable cloth bags instead of clear plastic bags…especially ones with fruit and veggie graphics!!
We also always do our best to include at least two colors of produce into every lunch we prepare as we’re always striving to eat a rainbow of colorful fruit and veggies everyday!
