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.

Butterfly Garden

The girls are off school today for Easter break so I thought it was a great opportunity to create something outside of the box (ha ha!). I'm looking forward to summer lunches when I can be creative but not necessarily confined to their boxes.

Another lunch inspired by Cookie Cutter Lunch

  • PB&J on whole wheat butterfly with a carrot, cheddar and provolone circles and yellow picks for decoration

  • Build-Your-Own Ants on a log (celery "stems", peanut butter and raisins)

  • Apple flowers (also yummy dipped in peanut butter)

  • Peach yogurt with a raspberry center


  1. Ok, that is absolutely adorable!!!! :)

  2. Cute... don't you love making a plain paper plate a work of art!?!?!

  3. Great presentation! I love those silicone cupcake liners.

  4. Yoooo Hoooo Caren. Where are you? I'm needing a bento fix and you haven't posted in a couple of days. I hope you're doing well and just taking a well deserved break with your family.

    Can't wait to see your latest creation!
