Willow's Lunch

Star theme lunch today ... just because stars are pretty.

Four mini peanut butter sandwiches (I used my sandwich cutter/sealer) with little stars cut out from fruit roll-up. In the pink container are some cantaloupe and cucumber stars and I also included the scraps because I think they are pretty too but you can't really see them. Willow didn't seem very hungry today - didn't want her snack earlier and didn't eat much of her lunch, even the PB sandwich so it was probably a bad day to add cucumber to her lunch but I just felt like it needed some green. But it turns out it was a good idea because she ate it!

I'm really starting to have faith in the theory that if you continue to offer your kids foods they don't like, it might change their minds, even if it's after 20 times of putting it on their plate. She even said, 'yum' as opposed to 'blegh' as she ate them! I think sometimes at this age they don't really know what they like and just go by their eyes and how appealing the food is. Which is why I'm such a big fan of bento :D

I love all your Bento boxes! Thank you so much for stopping by my weight loss blog today. Your comment made my day. That one post seems to have meant a lot to my readers. I had no idea it would impact anyone so much. I am so honored that you liked it.

I'm following you now too. My little guy will start eating normal lunches in less than a year so I need to start studying what to give him. Right now he is only getting formula and mushed veggies.

Love it (: Your bentos are so cute! I'm an early childhood studies major and you're absolutely right! Never give up on exposing your kids to foods (and other things) because it takes at least 40 attempts! And 200 exposures for the brain to really memorize something. Happy bento-ing!
