Making Lunch Fun, One Box at a Time

ben·tol·o·gy (ben t äləjē) Noun : The study of making nutritious and fun lunches for my daughters.

I get a lot of inspiration from other blogs. So, in hopes someone might get some inspiration from me, I've decided to post some pictures here.

This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.Proverbs 3:7-9

You have to admit, the internet is a pretty cool thing. I love how we can all share our ideas and be inspired by each other. For tomorrow's lunch, I was inspired by Kelly at Crouching Mother, Hidden Toddler who was inspired by a tutorial she saw at Mothering Corner. I don't claim to have nearly the talent of those two women, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!

To make them, I just followed the tutorial on Mothering Corner.
  • 4 PB&J chick roll-ups. Their beaks are made from orange sesame seeds and the eyes are sprinkles** (Wilton's Rainbow Chip Crunch, specifically). Their wings (my little addition) are just triangles of bread that I stuck on with a bit of peanut butter.
  • String cheese
  • Peas
  • Blackberries

** I took this picture before finishing Avery's lunch. For Avery's chicks, I made their eyes by adding dots with food safe markers. I think it looks just about as good and it won't run the risk of them falling off in transport.


  1. I think these are just adorable! They might be my favorite lunch yet!

  2. I see you're using more new picks. Looooooove it. I agree, w/Kim. This might be my fav too. They're so perfect.

  3. So cute!! I saw these over at Crouching Mother too and have been dying to try them! They came out really well!

  4. talent indeed! Yours are just perfect! Wish mine had come out so neat looking :) Love the wings too!
