Hi ho! Hi ho! It’s back to school we go.  Now you can envision the Seven Dwarfs and hear their whistling stuck in your head for the day.  This isn’t a Snow White lunch though.   I’m just happy that one of my kids is back to school today.  I love having them over the long weekends, but they are ready to go back to their friends after the long weekend.  These lunches are from last week when my laptop failed.  The best news for me is that I’m headache free now after 7 days off of caffeine.  Phew!  Last week was a long one.

Small square pocket sandwiches with carrots

For Miss G’s 4 year old lunch I used a new mini square pocket sandwich cutter that I have.  I filled them with SunButter and surrounded the bite sized lunch with mini carrots.  I have found that the more bite sized the lunch is, the more my kids eat.  If this were a normal sized sandwich cut in half, there would be some left when she returns from school.  Instead, it was an empty lunchbox that came home Friday.  In the top left compartment is an organic mini apple and in the top right of her Easy LunchBoxes container are sliced cucumbers.

Cucumbers, fruit & pinwheels by bentoriffic

Miss A (2 years old) went off to school Friday with Sunbutter and jam pinwheels on Rudi’s Organic Spelt Tortillas.  I stick them in the fridge or freezer to make them easier to cut before sending off.  The nut and seed butters can get runny and squished so I cool them down making them easier to slice.  Next to the wrap pinwheels are sugar snap peas.  Also included in today’s lineup are organic raspberries, blueberries, cucumbers and locally picked strawberries packed in a LunchBots Uno.

Have a great week, and happy lunch packing!

EYE love pasta!  I really do, and so do my kids.  What’s even better is that this stuff is homemade.  Not by me, but my local pasta place here in Sarasota, Florida, Peperonata Pasta.

They make all their pasta here in town, and it’s sold at Whole Foods stores all over the state.  I usually pick some up from the owners themselves at the local Sarasota or San Marco Plaza farmer’s markets on the weekend.  They make Vegan pasta that is incredible and loaded with healthy grains like quinoa, flax seed and millet.  There are never leftovers in our house!

Above is Peperonata’s tagliatelle vegan pasta topped with 2 eyeball rings and grape tomatoes.  Underneath the sliced  strawberries at the top are golden grapes packed in her Easy LunchBoxes.

For her snack this afternoon, Miss G had sliced apples and ants on a log (celery with SunButter and raisins on top).

So I spotted this glow-in-the-dark container at the store.  It was filled with Skittles.  Of course, I dumped the Skittles and filled it with trail mix.  The mouth twists open and shut.  I love this for raisins, seeds, etc to make healthy snacks fun.

My husband had a container of soup (not shown) and this fruity bento to go along with it.  At the top left are mango chunks, the top right is a clementine with Jack Skellington drawn on it.  My kids are still to young for movie “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, but I love it.   Who doesn’t love a good Tim Burton movie?  In the bottom compartment are green grapes, sliced dapple dandy pluots, and d’anjou pear sections packed in an Easy LunchBoxes container.

Some of my bento blogging friends also did Jack Skellington lunches.  Click on each one to find more Halloween ideas!
