So excited to have Lindsey, one of my oldest blogging buds, sharing some super creative ideas with you today! If you have been wanting to try bento, here’s a round up to get you started!
When my daughter started preschool this year, I started fretting over what to send her for lunch! She’s a semi-picky eater that would seriously eat a PB&J sandwich everyday. I didn’t want to be that Mom to the teacher, so I knew I was going to need to get creative. I had a few glimpses of the bento craze that seemed to hit instagram all at once and a lightbulb went off – I could do that! Then, I search Pinterest – fail. There are some crazy, creative Toddler Bento Lunch Ideas on Pinterest, let me tell you!
But instead of quitting before I even started, I searched for a bit easier-to-handle toddler bento lunch ideas! I’ve even compiled a few of my favorites that I found in this post, along with some that I’ve made myself. When, you’re looking for creative ways to get your child to eat – at home, at school, on a field trip – try a bento box for a new lunch inspiration! And if you need a few bento box supplies, this is my go-to resource! Read the reviews to make sure you get the best stuff!
