Bento lunch

The lovely, creative, Bento Mom posts a weekly What's for Lunch thread where readers can share what they've been sending our munchkins off to school with.  This is my first time participating.  It's for an excellent cause though, the more people post their bento lunches the more food she and her husband will donate to their local food bank-an excellent cause, hunger in America is astoundingly high and it affects men, women and children across all cultural and regional boundaries-it especially makes me sad to think of the children going to school hungry.  So here goes!

Paulo's lunch for today:
1 black bean tostada with olives, orange cherry tomatoes and avocado.
carrots and green olives
Coconut yogurt parfait layered with GF cereal, fresh blueberries and Trader Joe's dried strawberries


  1. Brilliant!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Olives, Krista? O.L.I.V.E.S.?

    And um, will you be my mommy? (minus the olives in my mexican food of course?)

  3. Taco Bell thinks olives are Mexican ;-) Paulo loooooves olives but then, he's 1/2 of me

  4. I use black olives to make funny faces on the girls lunches. They eat them that way.

  5. Cute! I've used raisins as a face to dress up a bowl of oatmeal. I'm all for decorating good food, whatever it takes to get the good stuff inside the tummy!


Input? Feedback? I'd love to hear from you!
