My oldest needs to bring a snack to school every day this year. In our house I am not normally in charge of the food, but I've been obsessively occasionally looking at bento boxes on Pintrest and so I quickly volunteered to be in charge of snacks. Mostly so that I could have a reason to buy those cute little bento accessories, oh and also to promote healthy food. sure. why not.
So here are my fist week's worth of snacks. None of these took more than 10-15 minutes to prepare, and while they are no way near the level of HappyLittleBento or the Dubiens, I think it's a good start.
simple. Just bananas, grapes, and marshmallows on a skewer.
This was a little more involved, but still no more than 15 minutes. A mini blueberry muffin (homemade, but from a mix) and mouse strawberries made with almonds, marshmallows, and craisins.
Again, simple but fun. Red peppers and a hummus roll on whole wheat tortilla held together with light sabers.
Carrots, another bunch of hummus wraps, this time with these picks, and yummy Pocky Sticks.
So that's it! My first week.
