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.
