Today was a two bento day, the first was for lunchtime at school and the second was for Maisie's gymnastics practice. Her practices are now three hours long so they take a break for a snack and Maisie has said that she's been hungry and wants more than I was giving her and asked that I pack her a bento.
Mac & cheese with a ham & cheese flower with a broccoli center, grapes, an I love you chocolate and a jelly.
Maisie did well with all this food, returning home with only about two tablespoons of macaroni uneaten.
Peanut butter on wheat heart sandwich, fig bar & raisins,
Maisie said that she enjoyed having a bento at gymnastics but said that she didn't have enough time to eat. She's not the fastest eater and she loves to talk so we talked about in the future having less talking and more eating. Maisie did eat half of her sandwich and the fig bar and then in the car on the drive home finished everything else and then ate dinner too!
