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.

Lunch at the Pool

Inspired by this adorable (and much better executed) fishy lunch at Glory's Mischief, I threw together a quick bento lunch for my daughters to enjoy at the pool.

  • Circle-shaped sandwich and decorated to look like a fish using cheddar and provolone cheese, a food safe marker and a pick for the lips.
  • Broccoli with ranch (the ranch cup is hidden under the broccoli)
  • Cherries with a starfish cupcake pick
  • Chobani yogurt tube
In addition to the product links above, here are some of the other products I used when creating this lunch:

Whooooo's Excited for Summer?

We are!!!  

This is the last school lunch before summer vacation.  (They have a half day tomorrow but both classes are ordering pizza for lunch. )

Summer...BRING IT ON!!!

  • Owl-shaped sandwich wearing a sunglasses cupcake pick.  I used the crust of bread to make the owl's wings.
  • Cherries (that I pitted so they didn't have to deal with spitting out the pits at the lunch table) with an beach umbrella cupcake pick
  • Carrots and broccoli with ranch and a beach ball cupcake pick
  • Chobani tube yogurt*
* We just received a shipment of Chobani tubes to review.  I will be writing up an official review soon but in a nut shell, the girls LOVE them!!!   What a quick, easy and healthy snack or addition to their lunch.  Thank you Chobani!   They have offered to do a giveaway so stay tuned!  You can win your own free yogurt!
