Nate is a very picky eater.  UGG!  apparently he is not as picky as some, but still there isn't much this kid eats.  So, in an attempt, to entice him to eat more/different foods I am embracing the Bento.  Until recently, I didn't realize that Bentos were more than boxes... I didn't realize that they meant making food cute too.  Either way, I was completely inspired by the mom who photographed all of her son's kindergarten lunches (which were Bento style, if you will) and decided to try it with Nate.

This is Nate's lunch and dinner than I packed in Bento boxes for him today.

(PB&J cut into Boat shapes, Trader Joes Jumbo Raisin Medley, and Freeze Dried Raspberries)

(Chicken Nuggets, Carrots, Apple slices, Round crackers, Caramel dip for apples, gummy bunnies)

Nate though this was pretty neat and really liked the little boxes.  We'll see if cute = eat more food.  I'll report back.
