Bento Lunch Attempts

Claire's schedule at preschool, full day, everyday, requires lunch and two snacks everyday. We try to do healthy, creative, balanced meals, but we sometimes come up short on all counts. When I have the time and energy, I take inspiration from some blogs (primarily Wendolonia) to create a colorful and fun lunch. Tomorrow's lunch is one such attempt with a heart theme, foods C is known to eat and a special treat. We have a heart shaped pb&j sandwich (bread cutter from Mimi), babybel cheese (tiny heart cookie cutter also from Mimi), little tomatoes, pear and a special treat of a Trader Joe's version of nutella mini sandwich using the excess bread. I get more excited about her lunch on these days than she does.
