I'm still playing around with getting just the right amount of snack, and with choosing items that are sure-fire. Like, string cheese is suddenly nosh non grata around here, but only sometimes, and I can't really pin down whether or not it will fly.
Tomorrow's snack is utterly simple: half a peanut-butter and strawberry jam sandwich on one of our favorite store-bought breads, Alvarado St. Bakery's Essential Flax Seed Bread. It's soft enough for that kid-friendly sandwich texture but full of healthy goodness. It's cut into thirds and placed in a cupcake liner for tidiness, and next to it are pineapple chunks, which are on Molly's short list of approved fruits. I trimmed down the plastic container from an individual serving of applesauce to create a container for juicy/liquidy foods that would otherwise seep out into the bento box.
There's a napkin tucked into the lid of the bento, and she'll get a milkbox. Happy Monday!
