Bento Box Lunch: Day 1
- Almond butter and honey sandwich
- Vanilla yogurt with sunflower seeds
- Sliced Pear
Using a cookie cutter, press a fun shape into 2 slices of whole wheat bread. Spread almond butter on 1 slice of bread and honey on the other, then press together. In a small container, add plain or vanilla yogurt and top with unsalted sunflower seeds. Slice a pear in half and then into quarters to dip into the yogurt or eat plain. Using recyclable or reusable cupcake liners, place some fresh berries inside.
Bento Box Lunch: Day 2
- Spinach and cheese sandwich (meat optional)
- Cinnamon applesauce
- Nuts, cranberries, raisins
Using a cookie cutter, cut through 2 slices of whole wheat bread and add spinach, cheese, and if you’d like turkey, chicken, or ham. You can use a container to add applesauce or use an individual pack. Be sure to have your child bring home the container if they do not recycle at his school. Using a reusable container or recycled cupcake liners, add nuts and fruit.
Bento Box Lunch: Day 3
- Ham and cheese whole wheat crackers (or swap in a veggie alternative and/or soy cheese)
This is a very easy bento box! Take a cracker and put ham and cheese between and add a bottom cracker, continue until you have 4. If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, try Yves soy-based deli slices or Tofurkey slices instead. In case their juice drains, use reusable containers or recycled cupcake liners for your fruit. Then cut a carrot in half and place in box.
