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

Back to School Bus

The inspiration train continues...Today's lunch was inspired by Rina from Bento School Lunches, who was inspired by Jill from Kitchenfunwithmy3sons.

Even though we're finishing up our third week of school already (time flies when you're having fun?!) there are still kiddos just starting back.  So, today's lunch was a back-to-school bus theme.  The first thing both my daughters noticed was that all the passengers were girls!  That really wasn't intentional...I was just going with the picks that I had ;-)

  • School bus shaped sandwich decorated with cheddar cheese, cucumber peel, black olives and people picks
  • Sugar snap peas and carrots with ranch
  • Blueberries and strawberry slices with a school themed cupcake pick
  • Hershey kisses
I always include a Lunchbox Love Note in with the girls' lunches.  As I've mentioned before, they LOVE them and love sharing the trivia fact that's on the back of each card with their friends at the lunch table.   I don't always remember to include the note in the picture when I photograph the lunch but this one was too perfect, I just had to make sure I included it!
Here are some of the items I used when creating this lunch:
