Bento Kid!

I've been ill and unable to make my sproutlet's lunches, but how would you like to see some lunches they've packed for themselves? 

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen the Made by Mia Bella album I created when my biggest little girl Bella, age 9,  asked if she could make her own bento lunches sometimes! Yay! Here's one she packed Thursday or Friday:

Bella packed her favourite, EasyLunchboxes, with cheese quesadillas, Fig Newtons, and red grapes. She chose flower picks and cups to decorate and cut some flower shaped Newtons too. Not shown are her drink - water in her usual Nalgene bottle, and her snacks - a Fiber One Chewy granola bar & a Sun Rype fruit leather bar, but I didn't catch the flavors.

Good choices, and cute too - well done, my girl

And the Mini Dippers, and the cookbook too!

  1. Wow Bella! This looks so good! You did a super cute job! Pat yourself on the back and give your mommy a really big hug! Well done!

  2. she did a great job! did you let her make lunches for her siblings, too? I bet she'd be a great little soux lunch maker!

  3. The comments were closed for your chopstick related post, but I wanted to show you these Edison Chopsticks. I love them, I have given them as gifts to all of my kiddoes (niece, nephew, babysitees, friends' kids, etc). They teach children the correct way to use chopsticks so that they can transition eventually into using real chopsticks correctly. They are great practice for fine motor skills, and they are just fun.

  4. This is such a great idea! Both my kids are uber picky eaters, and this would get them to eat a greater varieties of food!

  5. Awesome job! Love her theme. Get well soon!

  6. Awesome job! Love her theme. Get well soon!

  7. Awesome job! Love her theme. Get well soon!
