Here is Baby Girl's first bento for the new school term! She has been going all summer, of course, but after a two week break she has now moved up to the toddler program at her Montessori school. She will be going five days a week, so there will be more bentos to post! She now gets a snack provided by the school in the morning, so that might change how much food I pack. She usually isn't very hungry first thing in the morning before school, so I will still pack a little something extra for morning snack since the school snack is just fruit.
OK, now for the bento. For breakfast I packed a Mixed Grain and Blueberry Muffin and half a banana cut into pieces. Lunch was composed of some tuna and white bean salad, a couple wedges of 100% whole wheat pita bread, some edamame and some blueberries. I made the tuna and white bean with a can of olive oil packed yellowfin tuna, some great northern beans, fresh Italian parsley, zest of half a lemon, a bit of fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. This was packed in the small green tiffin box from World Market. She ate every bit of this bento except for a couple blueberries and three edamame, so I seem to have packed the right amount of food.
