The girls were starving by the time we were ready for lunch today so I had to come up with something quick!  They often want Hello Kitty which you may be tired of seeing by now, but they always like it.

Miss G had a Hello Kitty face sandwich on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  She also had organic seedless green grapes, Hello Kitty shaped cantaloupe pieces and a small container of dried cranberries packed in her Sanrio brand Hello Kitty bento box.

Little Sis had the same thing just in different shapes.  She had Hello Kitty sitting down with the same Hello Kitty stamped cantaloupe, green grapes and Craisins packed in her Hello Kitty bento box too.

The sandwich cutters came from the local Sanrio store and are cookie cutters.  The small vegetable & fruit cutters with stamps I found on eBay in Japan along with the Hello Kitty bento picks.

My husband has another healthy salad for lunch today.  He has all baby greens (spinach, kale, arugula and radicchio) topped with an orange heirloom tomato sliced and star shaped carrot slices.  At the top left are grapes and pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top.  At the top right was last night’s dinner here.  It’s Einkorn rigatoni, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, and white wine vinegar mixed with sweet peas, grape and plum tomatoes sliced, garbanzo beans (chickpeas) and topped with a small bit of soy feta cheese.  All if it is packed in his Easy Lunch Box.

Things I used to make this lunch:

The girls were off to play while I went to the dentist so they got to do lunch on the go.  I made some little pigs for Miss A.  Her sandwich is on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread and a raisin eye.  Above in the white pig are dried cranberries and the pink pig container has organic raspberries.  At the top left are watermelon strips with a pig pick and at the top right are red seedless grapes with a little pig baran peeking out.

Miss G chose the elephant Lunch Punch for her sandwich.  Both mom & baby have raisin eyes on their Rudi’s whole grain bread.  At the top left are red seedless grapes and at top right are elephant shaped watermelon pieces.  Both girls’ lunches are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.

I also packed a salad for my husband to go with his lunch.  Baby greens of swiss chard, spinach and arugula are topped with a half of an heirloom tomato surrounded by grape tomatoes and cucumbers.  At top left are pineapple chunks and red seedless grapes at the top right packed in his Easy Lunch Box.

Tools I used for this lunch:

Today’s lunch was a quickie.  My kids were starving and not willing to wait for my usual lunch antics and photos before eating.  Sheesh!  After all, they are 2 & 4.  They have the patience of a gnat.  So I whipped out my latest fun tool to try out, and this is what I got.  4 hearts and a diamond sandwich pockets made from Rudi’s Whole Grain bread, Justin’s Almond Butter and jam.  The owls are “sitting” on 2 Snyder’s braided whole grain pretzel sticks.  There are 2 heart watermelon pieces and a bunch of seedless red grapes below.

I pressed them in my newest toy from Bento USA below.

My husband gets a baby green salad with swiss chard, arugula and spinach underneath.  On top are orange heirloom tomatoes slices, baby carrots, chopped celery, green onions and sugar snap peas packed in his Easy Lunch Box.  At the top left are watermelon chunks and at top right are Rainier cherries.
