Bentobloggy Giveaway

My 8 year old daughter likes blini (mini-pancakes) in her lunch. We use tiny fish-shaped sauce bottles for maple syrup. I round it out with cheese strings, berries and a milk. I got her a laptop lunchbox two years ago and all the kids in her class want one. They always want to see what she has for lunch because it's never a boring old sandwich!

My almost 2 yr old son likes grilled/pan fried chicken and steamed broccoli for lunch. He has many food allergies so his food selection is limited. I make all meals for him and use organic when possible.
I just marinate the thinly sliced chicken breast with a little garlic powder, tamari soy sauce and olive oil.

Leigh said...

How fun! My girls love carrots- I can put carrots with any meal and know they'll at least at that part!

My 6 year old son loves to have fresh strawberries (it is the only fresh fruit he is not allergic to) and triscuts- not many kids like triscuts...lol

My 18 month old daughter will eat as many black beans as you let her and avacado in the same manner...

Nichole Carter said...

My almost 2 year old Molly will eat pretty much anything I give her but she especially likes her veggies and fruit (particularly fresh green beans and blueberries). Her tastes change daily, and I rarely make the same things over and over. She also loves eating meat off the bone (which is a little odd to me since I hate it) but she loves drumsticks.

My daughter isn't a very healthy eater and is ashamed of my bentos, but the healthiest thing I can get her to eat is a whole wheat ham sammie.

Super cute! My two and half year old daughter brown rice sushi! I've taught myself to make it she eats it so much! Her favourite roll lately has been crab, avocado, and cucumber. And If I can't get her into that, she's almost always up for whole wheat noodles, steamed broccoli with spicy Siracha, cheese, and strawberries!

Kels Luksusova said...

Kelly said...

No kids, but my favorite healthy foods are vegetables. I like all kinds of veggies - raw, steamed, cookied, whatever. My favorites are broccoli and asparagus. I like to eat grapes and apples as well, but I prefer veggies over fruit.

Kelly said...

I am now following this blog. I also added to my netvibes, so I get it when I open my home page. :)

Kelly said...

I have a blog, in fact I have several, but to be honest, I hardly ever post anything on them. I'm just not consistent enough to blog. I did however post about this contest on Facebook. (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=705340061) I hope that is ok.

It doesn't look my post saying that I am now following this blog showed up, so just in case - I am following this blog. :)

Kashmirkat said...

My girls are 18 and 21 now, so they pack their own bento when they need one. I pack them for my hubby - he likes to have a salad most days - gets a bit boring for me, but it's healthy...

I'm already following you and have you in my blog list - also added your giveaway to my blog :)

Kashmirkat said...

Was I supposed to add the link to my blog? I didn't post a blog entry about your giveaway, but added to my side bar where I now list bento giveaways, challenges and contests :)

starbelliedsneetch said...

I have no children, but some of my favorite healthy food is frozen fruit, mainly grapes and cherries are very delicious. If I have a way to keep it cool, and I am putting it into a bento, I like to make a miniature "fruit kabob" on a toothpick before putting it in the freezer. Sometimes I even include marshmallows :)

Abigail said...

My three year old LOVES cucumber slices. She can eat an entire cucumber herself. She also likes baby carrots, but will only eat those with light ranch dressing. For lunch she usually gets at least one fresh vegetable and one fresh fruit and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or rice.

Abigail said...

MommyBee said...

My son loves fresh fruit and cheese sticks with crackers. Sometimes he will nibble on a carrot stick, but they usually come back home with these tiny nibbles taken out of it. Oh well, have to keep trying!

MommyBee said...

thelittlewhitewitch said...

My son Quin (Age 3) loves to make "smoothies' We have a really great juicer and he can pick 3 fruit and 2 veggies and juice them. Its a great way to make sure he gets his 5 a day. Also a great thing to do together and its delicious'!!

I thought I'd hit up all four entry possibilities with one comment:

1. I'm still growing my little one inside right now, but my favorite lunch these days is a stuffed pita - whole wheat and warmed, with dark green leafies, carrots, tomatoes, feta (I know, I know - I don't care about the soft cheese pregnancy rule, though), banana peppers, and balsamic vinaigrette dressing inside. I normally toss everything together before stuffing it inside, and I add a couple of peppercinis to gnaw on while I'm eating it.

2. I'm both a follower of your blog and a facebook fan.

3. I blogged about you on one of my blogs: http://becoming-the-change.blogspot.com/ . If you're unable to view it, I can send you an invitation through blogger if you can send me an email address.

4. I added a link to your blog on my other blog under the "Check These People Out" section. http://4get2remember.blogspot.com/ . Same rule applies about the email invitation - I have both of my blogs set to private (looooong story).

Thanks for considering me! :-)

Rachel/Coconut Crumbs said...

hmm, fav lunch items? It's hard because I change it up so often. But I love simple salad in a tupperware with all sorts of toppings (beans, beets, roasted veggies, red cabbage). And I love steamed sweet potatoes for a lunch addition too!

Thanks!

Rachel/Coconut Crumbs said...

Also, I became a follower! thanks again.

Judee said...

One of my favorite childhood lunch items was ham/macaroni soup!

It consists of: chicken broth, cubed ham, peas and corn! Then throw in some cooked macaroni pasta so that it is like a chicken noodle soup type of lunch. It's dee-lish!

Although not that healthy, my mom will sometimes just use a can of Spam instead of ham too.

My daughter absolutely loves it when I pack edamame. Of course it helps that the little prepackaged bags I first bought her had Spongebob Squarepants on them, so she calls them Spongebob beans ^_^ I don't need to buy the prepackaged ones anymore, she's perfectly fine with them being tucked into her bento, but she'll always call them Spongebob beans!

Morgana said...

My son's favorite bento is a flax-seed flatbread rolled with honey and sunbutter. On the side he likes an organic yogurt tube, fresh watermelon hearts, and a hard boiled egg. And broccoli. Lots and lots of broccoli.
lol! I'm rather impressed with how much his palate has widened over the years. I still remember his first bento box, when he was two- peanut butter on white bread with no crusts, a cheese stick, and broccoli. (Yes, he's always loved the green stuff.)

Íris said...

I love onigiris! Usually I fill them up with tuna & celery or salmon skin or just mix the rice with some dry shiso leaves. It's a great thing for me because after eating them I feel quite satisfied and won't get cravings as soon as I usually do ^^

My little one loves quesadillas made with sprouted grain tortillas, cheese and spinach. Sometimes I add beans for protein. She adores this for lunch. She loves it even more if I cut into into a fun shape.

And I am a follower on blogger and facebook!

esther said...

my almost 3 yr old loves sushi rolls (minus the sushi)! usually i just use whatever filling material i have at home (i.e. carrots, cucumber, avocado, meats). i just roll it a little smaller than normal so that it can fit in her little mouth.

on other days, when mommy is super tired, she loves any type of pasta especially good ol' mac n' cheese!

esther said...

ive become a fan on facebook!!! :)

Jammie said...

My daughter loves the Korean Dish, Bibimbop. It has rice, nori, meat, and lots of veggies. Both her and my 19 mos old son love my unfried rice...which is rice with plenty of veggies, a splash of soy sauce, and boca crumbles.
