Happy First Day of School

Spud's bento on his first day of Kindergarten ... I should pack some tissues too ... for me!

SNACK TIME

Peaches
Carrots
6 yellow M+Ms inside the wee bear

LUNCH TIME


This is the new bento that Hubs found at Whole Foods. Two layers of stainless steel!
Apple cubes
Grapes
Cherry Tomatoes
Ladybug cookie [I found these at Costco and keep them in the freezer to add as a treat]
Havarti/Corned Beef Sandwich
2 more cookies! It is his first day after all.

Wow. From baby to Kindergarten in a flash. Phew.

I am a new reader and Love your ideas. How in the world do your child to eat that healthy lunch? This has always been a struggle for us. Oh, Love the container by the way. I am off to Whole Foods tomorrow and I am sooo picking a couple of them up.

Thanks for your inspiration.

Thanks for the nice words guys. I don't know about the healthy lunch ... I think maybe starving him into submission is the trick. Kidding!

But seriously, by the end of the school day, when I picked him up, he had half a sandwich left as well as all 3 of the cherry tomatoes, all of the grapes and half the apples. The rest was gone. On the way home he was so hungry that he devoured all the leftovers. I'm pretty sure this wouldn't work with spinach or beets ... but hey, I just might try it one day.
; )

Thanks for popping by!

ok, now I feel better.
I noticed he didn't leave the sweet treat behind. Sounds normal to me :)
