This day's lunch marks the height of my frustration with Baby Girl's eating strike. That might be apparent in the disheveled appearance of this bento. Thankfully, it also marked the turning point in her strike. This bento came back mostly empty! And, she has continued to eat since, although some days are better than others.
It's not surprising that Baby Girl decided to eat on this day, this bento is chock full of her favorite foods. The main attraction is a freshly ground, no additive peanut butter and Earth Fare brand low sugar raspberry conserves sandwich on homemade whole wheat bread. The bread is my husband's creation, made with 100% white whole wheat flour using a recipe adapted from the book The New Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. Baby Girl has never turned her nose up at "Papa bread." With her sandwich she had some sugar snap peas, a clementine, one sunbutter oatmeal ball and some raisins.
