What About Lunch?

I've been a fan of a lot of bento/lunch blogs like Another Lunch and What's for Lunch at Our House this past year. I'm really excited about packing Hannah fun and healthy lunches when she starts Junior Kindergarten in the Fall. Both of these sites (and many others I visit frequently) have such great ideas and most try to be as Green as possible. We've been trying to use less individually packaged items and things like ziploc bags. I also love the site Green My LunchBox. They feature great green lunch items and I've actually won some great things from their Facebook page! I can't wait to start packing for Hannah!

This is the Goodbyn lunchbox we're waiting to get in the mail right now.

We've also received reusable snack bags from lunchskins and some great sandwich cutters from lunchpunch.

Lunches are getting fun around here!

And speaking of lunches, I thought we'd have a little theme lunch today.

An Octopus hotdog with ketchup "squid ink" (Hannah insisted! I said it was water...), Carrot fish, a pretzel stick raft (at least for Avery...Hannah said it's a dock...), celery boats with cherry tomato "people". :) Hannah's super picky so hers had a few more carrot fish and no celery or tomato...

Check back during the school year for posts about Hannah's lunch adventures!

Very cute! Found you through Another Lunch. I have to ask, how DO you get your children to eat celery? lol

Dylan loves octopus hot dogs! :) I hope Hannah enjoys her new lunch gear!
