Toddler Bento Box

Why we love it: The variety in this jam-packed lunch box has enough options to keep even the pickiest eater satisfied and interested.

How to make it: Start with half a sandwich and cut into a fun shape with a cookie or sandwich cutter. Add colorful fruits and veggies with character-shaped toothpicks. To keep foods separate, pack them in cupcake wrappers (they’ll add a splash of color, too!).
