I love the whole idea of Bento boxes. They’re an especially good for toddlers who like to pick at a little bit of everything and a great way to introduce new tastes in a fun way.
The internet is awash with Bento box ideas but I thought I’d share the simple lunch that I made Rose today in her fabulous pink yumbox Bento box. It’s great because it has good sized compartments and is also completely leak proof so you can even put yoghurt in without worrying it will make a mess.
- Slices of avocado, cherry tomatoes and pitted green olives
- Greek yoghurt sprinkled with chia seeds and raspberries
- Small cheese sandwich
- Yu! yoghurt coated mango pieces*
- Pom bear crisps
We were sent some samples of the Yu! snacks to try and I thought they fit in perfectly with the concept of a Bento box. I don’t give Rose sweets but she does have the odd treat every now and then (don’t we all) so these are a nice addition. I’m impressed that the new Yu! fruity chews have no added sugar and there is a really good variety of shapes, flavours and textures including mango, raspberry, strawberry, blueberry and more so you’re bound to find something you enjoy. Really good to pop into the changing bag and proven to distract during major melt down situations (like we had at playgroup the other day!) Thumbs up!
I hope you enjoyed having a look inside Rose’s Bento lunchbox, I might make this a bit of a regular feature and would love to hear your Bento lunch suggestions too!
