Bento Box Lunch: Day 5
- Peanut butter banana whole wheat wrap
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.
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.
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.
You can use homemade granola or granola bars to dip in the yogurt. Slice a peach and place in box. I leave the skin on and my daughter peels off or eats around it. Cut a celery stalk in half, then add peanut butter and raisins.
Cover a whole wheat tortilla shell evenly with peanut butter. Then add a whole banana and roll into a wrap. On the other side of your box, add fruit and vegetables.
