Christmas Week Bentos

Christmas is on it’s way and we are all very excited in our house. We got our Christmas Tree this weekend, so I did 2 different Christmas tree bentos. Zane’s favorite was the gingerbread men, but I wasn’t super happy how it turned out. But I’m learning that even if I don’t do the best job, he is loving it, and it’s doing it’s job he is loving new healthier foods every week!

Things I Learned

  • Even if you think you did a terrible job making a lunch it may end up being your child’s favorite.
  • As I’m packing more and more veggies, Zane is eating more of them, so bento boxes will help with healthy eating!
  • Zane tried a pomegranate seed on the weekend and loved them, he is becoming more adventurous in his food with bentos.
