Lunch Time!

Going back to school means getting back into routines: homework, bedtime rituals, and morning rituals (getting dressed, having breakfast, packing the backpack).
Lunch is one of those things that can fall between the cracks.  But with a little planning and a cool Bento Box, putting together lunch can become a fun creative activity that you can share with your child.   These little boxes allow one to make their own "lunchables', that means fresher food, enviable curiosity from other kids about what adventure awaits him/her in their box (think "what's in your lunch?") and a money saving alternative to pre-made food.  For some fun ideas check out Bentology Tips for Back to School Lunch.
I love how fun these lunches are with a variety of fruit, veggies, nuts, cheese, crackers, or quartered sandwiches, just about anything goes.  Have fun with your child in making their lunch, work to have different colors, textures, and flavors.
