Packing lunches for the Baby Dudes has become one of my favorite projects. It’s challenging at times because they’re at the stage where they really only want to eat things they can feed themselves, but they can’t use utensils at all yet. They dislike all meat and while they’re great eaters generally, they often devour something one day and completely refuse it the next. I generally pack a bento-style breakfast/lunch to send to daycare because it gives them a lot of options; if they don’t eat one thing one day, no worries–they have several other little options! If I have time, I like to add something cute by using cookie cutters or the rice/egg molds I ordered, but many times the boys get a simple, easily prepared lunch like this.
Clockwise from top, left corner: Egg Pinwheels (directions below), frozen green beans and corn steamed in the microwave, yogurt melts, canned peaches rinse in water to remove excess sugar, yogurt (usually just send the package but I wasn’t thinking and opened it-oops), and Blueberry-Oatmeal Fingers (directions below).
