Everything I know about Bentos I learned in Kindergarten

Everything I know about Bentos I learned in Kindergarten… okay not really BUT.  Recently while helping out in  KC’s Kindergarten class. I was able to see the kids have Snack Time.  Boy was that interesting.  Let me tell you.

First off, I pack A LOT more food than anyone else.  Everyone (that I saw that day) only had ONE item.  And they ran the gambit.  I saw things from half a PBJ, to a banana, to a fruit cup, to Pirate Booty, to whole grain crackers.  I also saw zippy bags of Kix (I think that’s what it was), and another child with a little bag of popcorn.  Then there were the kids with no snack at all.  They all ran up to the teacher and got one gram cracker each.  I found it all very educational.

So I’m trying to make some adjustments to KCs bentos.  Primarily in SIZE.  I don’t plan on compromising on the nutrition, and of course Cute Factor should stay up.

Here are my Bentos from this week.
