I have a lot going on this week.  It’s the first week my kids are off school, it is my 1 year bloggiversary on June 2nd, and my sister is having her 1st baby today!   She’s not here yet, but I know she’s a lucky and beautiful girl already.  Welcome to the world, precious girl!

To celebrate my 1 year anniversary of bentoriffic, I must thank FunBites for their generosity and doing another giveaway.  There are 2 cutters available from FunBites.  The Cube It FunBites cutter is on the left and the Luv It! FunBites cutter is on the right.  You can also find them now in Bed, Bath & Beyond.  You’ll be supporting a family owned business who makes there products right here in the United States.  My winner will get to choose which one of these they would like.  I am always finding new ways to use them!

Since we’re my 1 year anniversary as a blog, I want to thank my friends and fans for all their support.  I love you toast with fresh fruit for breakfast anyone?  The small heart flowers are cantaloupe and watermelon.   The heart in the middle of the toast is fruit leather.  I used both the FunBites Luv It and Cube It cutters for the meal below.

More heart flowers for lunch using FunBites Luv It cutter.  At top left is chickpea hummus with a clover pick, at the top right are watermelon hearts.  The bottom part of the Easy Lunch Box has crackers for dipping in the hummus, next to the crackers are mango hearts, at bottom right are cantaloupe hearts and the bottom left has a sandwich topped with soy cheese hearts.

And a baby carriage sandwich today with a baby panda to celebrate my sister and her husband’s new arrival today!  A sandwich made from both the FunBites Luv It and Cube It cutters.  At the top left are pineapple and cantaloupe cubes and at the top right are pear cubes both cut with the Cube It FunBites cutter.  The baby carriage sandwich is an almond butter and jam on whole grain bread cut from the FunBites Luv It cutter .  The small hearts at the top are dried apricots.  The baby lunch is also packed in an Easy Lunch Box.

I know it’s not here yet, but we have to give you time to buy groceries and plan! My bento buddies and I are doing a St. Patrick’s Day blog hop today. Little A found this Irish troll in Goodwill yesterday, and I decided he was a good mascot for today’s blog hop. When you get to the bottom, please click on the link to check out the next fun lunch.

We’re on spring break this week and eating at home. Miss G is having green tinted hummus with carrot shamrocks on top. To go with the hummus are homemade clover shaped pita chips. She has an apple slice with a clover cut out of the middle. At the bottom right are kiwi slices and bottom left are dried apricots and green grapes.

Miss A has a shamrock shaped sandwich on whole grain bread on spinach leaves. At the top are clover shaped honeydew melon, the green shamrock container has edamame and fresh snap peas and a clover shaped dried apricot is below that. At the bottom left is a clover shaped cucumber and above that is an apple hat with fruit leather buckle.

And NOW please click on the link to go check out what’s awesome today in What’s In John’s Lunch Bag for more St. Patrick’s Day fun!

Normally I do lunches for Miss G when she’s off to preschool, but every now & then I find the time to do something quick for both girls at home.  These are just tiny PB & Js with cherries and plums.  Miss G wanted to make her own so I try to keep it as simple & mess free as I can.  Even little Miss A who is 17 months is starting to enjoy the fun shapes.   It doesn’t have to be complicated to make it fun for them.  Remember, their tummies are small so try to make realistic portions (size of their fist).  The plate should be half fruits and veggies at every meal!

Things I used to make this lunch:

Today was a lazy lunch at home. Used the crown/heart LunchPunch cutter for the sandwich. Carrot sticks, ranch dip, clover shaped pear, grape flower & green bean chip for the stem.
