I am fortunate enough to have been on the list of people who were chosen to try out the new CuteZCute cutter for fun sandwich and bento faces.  I have to say I’m super impressed at the easy of use and cleaning and the adorable, fun lunches in about 5 minutes flat.  I can’t wait to let my 4 year old make her own lunches with it.  For the affordable price it also will make for super cute gifts for the holidays too!  All these tools come in 1 box.

The cutter is available at my favorite bento supply store Bento USA by All Things For Sale as well as on Amazon.

The panda face is on Rudi’s whole grain bread with a Stretch Island fruit leather face.  The sandwich is on a bed of brown and wild rice with grape tomatoes and sugar snap peas.  At the top left are grapes in a flower shape with a piece of panda baran (food separator) for decoration. at top right is a clementine orange I colored a panda face with a marker & peeled the ears up for fun.  The lunch is packed in her Easy Lunchboxes container.

Miss G’s snack today was strawberry hearts, panda face shaped cantaloupe pieces and apricot mango soy yogurt in the round container in her Happy Tiffin bento.

Even Miss A gets a small version with the pig cutter.  On the left side of her LunchBots Duo are pieces of cantaloupe, pluots, and below in the white pig silicone cup are watermelon pieces.  Above the sandwich on the right is a small pig container with dried cranberries in it and sugar snap peas.  The sandwich is simply whole grain bread with almond butter on the bottom and strawberry jam on the top so that it squishes through for color.

Things I used to make this lunch:

My girls are at home with me during they day so unless we have an outing, we’re not packing many bento-style lunches these days.  Miss G is under the weather with a fever so we’re on quarantine for a few days too until she’s well.

Today Miss A asked more more little sandwiches.  I have some great options from my sets that I got from Bento USA.  I used the flower cutter from this set for her little flower sandwiches.  Click on the picture for the link to their site.

Miss A had Tofurkey deli slices on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  I used zucchini for the white flowers and the leftover rind for the stems of the flowers.  From the top left are Way Better brand Simply Sweet Potato Tortilla Chips (they have chia seeds and quinoa in them!), watermelon flowers and a flower of guacamole for dipping on the right.

Miss Sicky has a flop of a lunch.  I really meant to take some time with the teapot, but the more I tried the worse it looked.  Sometimes the image in my head is much prettier than the lunch itself. The teapot sandwich is a Tofurkey deli slice sandwich on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  The top is a slice of Vegan brand cheese.  I stared with a food coloring marker, and it went down hill from there.  I ripped the teapot handle, and I had to cover up some messy polka dots with some bad-for-you heart sprinkles to salvage it.  At the top left are watermelon flowers and at the top right are zucchini flowers.  The best part with little kids is that they even love the failures.

For all the smaller flowers, I use the flower cutter from this set of small cutters that I have.  I get lots of questions about which tools I use the most so I’m trying to include photos and links to those products for those who are interested.  I love these cutters because they never rust, they’re very easy to clean, and you can use them for just about any food item you want to cut.  If you click on the photo, it will take you to Bento USA’s site for more bento accessories.
