Puzzling bento

Posted on: October 30, 2012

My 4 year old loves her sandwiches.  She has whole grain and pumpernickel puzzle pieces.  I used the The Lunch Punch puzzle piece cutters for this one.  I cut the bread first, fill the sandwiches and then reassemble the pieces.  To the left is a pick of grape tomatoes and dried apricots.  Above the sandwich are red seedless grapes.  In the top left compartment of her Easy LunchBoxes are heart shaped strawberries and the top right are apple pieces.  I soak the apples immediately in a bowl of cold water with a bit of lemon or lime juice to prevent browning.  I soaked these for about 10 minutes and then toweled dry and put in the lunchbox.

See this great post by Cristi of  Bent On Better Lunches on different methods for preventing your fruits from browning in the lunchbox.

The Great Apple Browning Experiment

For her snack, Miss G has Sabra hummus with two different types of grapes and sliced kiwi.  Not shown are crackers for dipping in the hummus.

Still going on with the giant box of clementines we have, today’s face is a vampire.  Stay tuned for one last Halloween lunch and a giveaway this week.  Stay warm & safe, everyone!

I’m going to draw age-appropriate faces on all my clementines from now on – thanks for the inspiration!

It’s fun! So glad you liked it!
