First Day of School
Today was J’s first day of school and she got to help make and pick out the items that would go in her new Hello Kitty lunchbag. The Sistema Lunchcube fits perfectly into her lunchbox, even though I wanted her to get a bigger one so I could transition at least one of the girls, to the Easy Lunchboxes. (May need to try on her sister!)
This is also me dipping my toes into the world of cute bento food picks!
- Diced cantaloupe (in Easy Lunch Boxes Mini-Dipper container*)
- Turkey and Cheese Pinwheels on Whole Wheat Bread (I used the Sandwich Sushi Tutorial over at Another Lunch)
- Apple & Eve Fruitables (no notice of juices from China, if that’s a concern)
- Oreo (special for first day/week of school)
Even though that’s a whole sandwich smushed together, I kept asking J if she wanted anything else. Time will tell if this is enough food for lunch. I made a batch of homemade yogurt, but both girls are now afraid of their yogurt ‘exploding’ on them at lunch. /shrug
The price and shipping varies for this variety pack of animal picks. They happened to be $3 plus free shipping at the time so I picked up two packs with some other lunchbag items I was buying. They take up less space than a fork for the fruit too. I had both girls try them out on some food and they’re really durable. I can’t wait to find some more!
