Broccoli, pineapple jelly, cream cheese on wheat Marie sandwich, grapes and lite ranch dip in the Hello Kitty container.
Maisie has needed a lit more fruit and veg in her diet so, I've been giving her very small sandwiches and lots the needed fiber. Thankfully she's enjoying this combination and today's bento box came home empty.

Maisie wanted a sandwich again so white chocolate peanut butter on wheat heart sandwiches with fairy sprinkles, grapes, carrot sticks and lite ranch dip in the Hello Kitty container.
Maisie wasn't happy that I didn't include a jelly in today's bento but she enjoyed what was there, finishing everything that I included.

Peanut butter on wheat heart sandwiches with fairy sprinkles, strawberry jelly, grapes & raisins.
Today we met friends at a jumping place and Maisie was a bit too distracted to really concentrate on eating her bento but she did well, finishing all but one of the heart sandwiches.

White chocolate peanut butter on wheat heart sandwiches with fairy sprinkles, roasted broccoli, raisins & pineapple jelly.
I'm really not in a bento rut again it's just that Maisie is asking for certain items in her bento and I'm just trying to give her what she requests and make it cute. She loves helping to cut out her sandwiches and sprinkle on the fairy sprinkles. I've also found that when she requests certain items and I give them to her, she eats more so that's a good thing. Today's bento came home empty and she said that she loved it all but that I forgot to put in dip...oops!

Maisie again requested a peanut butter sandwich so this morning we made dolphins and a heart on wheat bread with the obligatory fairy sprinkles, roasted broccoli, raisins, orange jelly and lite ranch dip in the Hello Kitty container.
Maisie has really been enjoying roasted broccoli and actually requested that I put some, along with dip in her bento. Half of one dolphin sandwich came home uneaten,

Grilled chicken nuggets, parsnip "fries", roasted broccoli, roasted cauliflower & lite ranch dip in the Hello Kitty container.
It's a new year and hopefully a new start to my bento packing. Maisie enjoyed all the veggies but only ate about 1/3 of the chicken but that's par for the course, avoiding the protein.
