I got caught with my hand in the Play Doh cabinet again.  I found these cute little bread cutters, washed them off and made these mini sandwiches today.  I cut Stretch Island grape fruit leather faces for both of them.  Just above the sandwiches are picks of green and black olives.  At the top left are raspberries and top right are blueberries.

Little Miss 2 year old is my finicky eater.  She had three little birds today for her lunch.  My kids love that Bob Marley song.  A pick of black olives is just above the sandwiches.  Raspberries, blueberries and a cantaloupe bird are at the top.  Both lunches are packed in Easy Lunch Boxes.

And I’m working on a local food story so my husband’s lunch today included foods I purchased at the local farmer’s market.  The base of the salad is baby spinach leaves.  I placed okinawan spinach leaves (purple and green) on top for color and for him to try, organic radishes which I bentoed out with these cute faces, and topped the salad with fresh sunflower sprouts.  I had never seen the okinawan spinach before so we had to try it.  Here’s a link to find out more about okinawa spinach.  Besides adding awesome color, it apparently has cholesterol lowering properties in it.  All of the ingredients came from My Mother’s Garden at the Sarasota, FL Downtown Farmer’s Market on Saturdays.  In the top compartments are organic blueberries and organic red quinoa at the top right (cooked in vegetable broth) packed in an Easy Lunchbox container.

Yesterday my little one, Miss A, started her first 1/2 day at preschool.  She is a healthy eater, but she’s still only 18 months old.  I wanted to make sure to be realistic about the portions and include some of her favorite foods.  I also bought some new BPA free bento boxes for smaller portion sizes that I’m trying out.  I bought them at  http://www.Japanistic.com

The squirrel container had small heart and flower shaped PB & Js on sprouted wheat.  The heart container has mandarin oranges on the right and edamame and strawberries on the left.  Not included in the picture was a Lifeway flavored kefir pouch.

Big sis got her PJ & J on the same sprouted wheat bread with a triangle face (chocolate sprinkle face stuck on with Nutella) and a small man shaped sandwich.  On the left is a new treat that I found at Whole Foods.  A Clif Kid organic fruit twist, and in the bento box are mandarin oranges, strawberries and edamame on colorful flower & petal picks.
