Hello Kitty Snack

A Hello Kitty snack for the last day of camp.

Hello Kitty shaped boiled egg (in a HK cupcake wrapper)
cantaloupe, grapes & chocolate chips in the HK container

The egg looks more like HK in real life. The photos do not do it justice.

Mid-morning snacks

Amy is at camp and the other little girls would like to go to the Bermuda Aquarium Museum & Zoo today so 3 mid-morning snacks.

For camp:
Fish shaped boiled egg, dried apricots,
grapes & strawberries

For the aquarium:
strawberries, granola bar, grapes

goldfish, grapes & strawberries

Heidi's is the last one. Since she's only 2, I don't usually put any picks in hers unless we are going to be all sitting and eating at the table together. For outings and such I try to leave them out since it's more of an on the go eating adventure and I just feel it's safer. In September when she starts nursery I will probably only use the small forks & spoons in her lunch.

More Puzzle bentos!

Two more puzzle bentos :) They are very similar with slight changes for individual tastes - plus it's grocery day so I'm trying to use up the odds and ends.

Rose's lunch
clementines & strawberries, grapes,
 carrot sticks, grape tomatoes, ranch dip
puzzle sandwich stacked- peanut butter

Amy's lunch
puzzle sandwich stacked - peanut butter
carrot sticks & celery sticks with PB dip
diced peaches, strawberries

I switched to a bread with 100% whole grain - the picky one is already complaining.
I'm going to keep trying though.

Puzzle Pieces

The girls are loving our new Puzzle Pieces Lunch Punches - I bought mine locally but you can also find them online.  Here is it again today in a little bento for Heidi.

strawberry jam & cream cheese puzzle sandwich (they really fit together!)
grape tomatoes & cucumber pieces with a little ranch dip
clementines & craisins

Stars for Heidi - just because :)

boiled egg, triscuit crackers, grapes on star picks, honeydew,
cucumber stars, carrot sticks, celery sticks, grapes tomatoes
Stretch Island Fruit Co cherry fruit leather star cutout
Peanut butter star sandwich with a cheddar topper

We are eating at home today and when she saw that Rose had 2 dips (one being yogurt) she wanted some dip too. So I gave her some ranch dip and she then proceeded to dip everything in it - LOL. She's still eating even though everyone else is finished!!

E is for Elephant

For Rosie who's been practising her letter sounds.
vanilla yogurt, chex mix craisins
cucumbers, celery sticks, carrot sticks, tomatoes ( ranch dip in the elephant container)
pineapple, grapes, cantaloupe, strawberries
Mom & baby elephant sandwich with cheddar - Lunch Punch

She loved it all and dipped her fruit in the yogurt. I guess she was in the mood for dip :)

She loved the Hello Kitty in cinnamon but still wouldn't eat the tomatoes.
Oh well - it was still worth a re-visit!

Lunch x 5!

A friend was over with her children and I made them all a planetbox lunch - so that was 5 lunches at once. Here we go:
Lunch #1
Goldfish & yogurt covered raisins, ranch dip, cucumbers, tomato, celery, carrots
strawberries, blueberries, honeydew, cherry fruit leather fish, fish sandwich ( it was ham I think)

Lunch #2
goldfish & yog covered raisins, dip, cucumbers, carrots,
berries & melon, cherry fruit leather fish,
ham cat sandwich with a very crooked mouth - lol!

Lunch #3 - Heidi's lunch
pretty much the same as the others except no dip, no celery, no picks
and a peanut butter duck sandwich

Lunch #4 - Amy's lunch choices
butterfly crackers, boiled egg, yogurt covered raisins, cucumber flowers & carrot sticks
blueberries & strawberries, honeydew melon, cherry fruit leather butterfly
cat sandwich - either PB or ham I can't remember!

Lunch #5 - Rosie's lunch
butterfly crackers, yog covered raisins, dip, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, celery
strawberries & blue berries, honeydew melon, fruit leather crown, butterfly sandwich.

I didn't over decorate her butterfly with jumbo sprinkles as I usually would as I didn't want it to seem unfair to the other children who only had a candy eye or two on their sandwich! So a very plain butterfly it was - no complaints :)

Rose didn't eat too much of her lunch as she wanted to go back to playing - the others ate lots :) I realised afterwards that I had put a little too much in Heidi's but she still ate a good portion of it.
