Healthy, Fun Lunches

bento boxesAs the mother of a picky eater, I’m always looking for inspiration on what to feed my son, especially when I have to send his lunch to preschool.

A special thanks goes out to my friend Leslie who came across this fun blog, Wendolonia, on packing Bento Boxes for lunches and snacks.

Ok, so my Jack might not like all the foods in every picture, but it definitely inspires me to try a few new foods with him and make his lunches more fun. The author, Wendy Copley, shows all of the tools you need (and where to get them). Check out Wendolonia, her blog to see lots of inspiring pictures of the bento boxes she makes for her preschool aged son. And if you’re not familiar with bento boxes, check out her Bento Box FAQ too.

  1. I too have a very picky eater – love the boxes, keeps it all from spilling around in their lunch boxes

    I have a two year old who is a very picky eater so i understand how hard it is to find food that he will eat. Since i went to work, i have met a lot of mothers who gave me some good advice as to how to make dinners fun. Since then I have had no problems with him not eating.

  3. Came across this blog when searching for information on making food fun. I have had real trouble with mine because he is such a fussy eater, but a friend recommended trying to make food fun and colourful and it’s getting easier.

    It’s definitely wise to tackle this as soon as possible because otherwise next thing you know they are in their teens and impossible to feed.

    I love the coloured boxes, useful product!
