Meagan Musing: Preschool Bentos - Weeks 24 & 25

Preschool Bentos - Weeks 24 & 25


We missed a whole week of school two weeks ago.

Andrew had to have some tiny little cavities filled and sealant put on his back baby teeth. The dentist says he has super deep and groovy teeth. Ha! I told Andrew that was really cool - groovy teeth. :)

But that also means we've had to eliminate our gummy/chewy snacks. We used Scooby fruit snacks as rewards or special treats for months, but not anymore. Poor kid was sad, but he's been a trooper about it.

And he gets to eat these awesome lunches all the time so he should never, ever complain about anything, right?? Hahahaha! No.

And then we got the stomach bug that wouldn't quit later that week and we missed another day of school. So he was super excited to finally get back to it. And he ate all his lunch. :)

Tuesday, April 2

Elephants! Andrew had elephant shaped naan, peanut butter celery, ham roll-ups with ketchup, blueberries and a tiny cup of marshmallows. I added a few little circus picks to continue the elephant theme. It was packed in our frog box.

Caroline had ham and star shaped naan, strawberries and baby goldfish. I'm loving these little strawberry picks.

Andrew had the cutest lunch. I used these car cutters to make his PB&J's. He also had grapes, bunny grahams, cashews and mini chocolate chips in a cherry cup from this set.

I hadn't been to the store yet this week when it was time for lunch on Tuesday. Oops. So Andrew had star shaped PB&J's, graham sticks, blueberries and carrots and a few marshmallows in the Lego box. I packed this lunch in a new box I found at Target. It's adorable and I think it was only $3.99. I found it last week on the aisle with the other kid dishes. It's their Circo brand if you're looking for it.

Caroline also had star shaped PB&J's. I packed a few graham sticks, sliced grapes and cashews in the pea pod cup from the same set as the cherries. She also had a Plum fruit pouch. Those things are her love language. (The giant silicone cup is back in stock at All Things for Sale.) And Caroline got a new Target box too.

Today Andrew had turkey roll-ups with ketchup, blackberries and raspberries, pretzel squares and marshmallows. I also threw in a GoGo Squeeze Applesauce pouch I picked up at Blissdom. Love those things! And you know how much Andrew loves dinosaurs so those guys spiced things up a bit. I packed it in our Lunchbots Duo. It's a great box, but Andrew needs help getting the lid off.

As always, let me know if you have any questions about our boxes or supplies. I'd love to help y'all pack a lunch your kids will want to eat! :)
