A bento is basically food in a box. And this bento box is a favorite of ours :) They are smaller but they are the perfect size for Eliana, who doesn't always eat the biggest lunches. They are two tiered, stack easily and an elastic bento strap holds it all together. I've been using them for months now and I'm finally getting a picture up of them on the blog! Eliana loves that she can open everything herself without any help.
So continuing with our Back To Nature Crazy Bugs Macaroni & Cheese we made another lunch :)
In the bottom tier (top in the picture) Eliana has her Crazy Bugs Macaroni & Cheese in a Flower Silicone Cup. Beside the cup are some frozen peas (will defrost by lunchtime) and rolled ham skewered on some cute bug bento picks.
In the top tier (bottom of the picture) she has sliced strawberries with two more cute bug bento picks. The white lid makes the top tier leak proof from our experience. I've put yogurt and applesauce in that tier and never had a leak :)
Don't these A Bug's Life Lunches make you think of spring?! With this *freezing* weather lately (and by freezing I mean in the 50s and 60s) I was happy that we made some warm spring time lunches :)

Here is what I used to make this lunch:
