Bento Box Lunch Ideas!

I was thrilled to be able to buy my daughter a cool Bento Box from Laptop Lunches this year.  I like that the four boxes encourage me to "think outside the box" from the usual sandwich, bag of chips, sweet treat and maybe fruit...and that there is usually zero trash. Although I'm not as creative as others...here are a few of my daughter's lunches:

Pineapple rings, cheese, star-shaped PBJ, "smore" for dessert (nutella, marshmallow, graham cracker)
English Muffin with butter on one half/almond butter on other half, orange & grapes, cheese triangles with pepperoni, watermelon
Example of a lunch without my special box. Used a Lock & Lock container.  PBJ sandwich cut into a heart, rice cakes and cocoa roasted almonds. Fruit in separate container.

cheese, almonds, raspberries, cantalope, sausage over bread, and for dessert plain yogurt sweetened with chocolate syrup, mini choc chips and marshmallows
