So, you’ve got a picky eater – now what?
I ask myself this question all the time. In fact, I am the complete opposite of picky. If I have a stomach flu, I still manage to eat 3 square meals. I guess I just love food, but my boy only loves very specific foods. Because of this, I was so happy to come across the concept of bento boxes and am in love with all the options you can find from Bentology (HINT: Scroll down to enter to win one of their bento kits for yourself!). I love them because of the portion control factor, and B loves them because it’s fun to put together colorful, enticing meals, presented in a way that even your pickiest will devour – without any foods touching one another. These are some of our recent healthy bento box inspirations for your little picky ones!
Healthy Bento Box Inspiration For Picky Eaters
In this box we added Branden’s favorite Biena All Natural Honey Roasted Chickpeas, a granola bar (choose whatever granola bar your littles love most), cherry tomatoes, kiwi, and our favorite cheddar cheese stick.
In the upper left hand corner, I added the mixture for my Easy Southwest Style Kale Salad (minus the greens), black olives (hello – what child doesn’t love to play with these on the tips of their fingers then pop them in their mouth?), our favorite organic apple sauce, and B’s snack of the moment: Spicy Roasted Chick Peas! (Recipe HERE)
In this box we added a hard boiled egg, green apple slices, organic peanut butter and a mixture of my favorite Ocean Spray Reduced Sugar Craisins Dried Cranberries and World Peas Santa Barbara Ranch Peas – so yum!
In the upper corner you can see our new favorite, PB&J Pinwheels – recipe coming soon! Then we tossed in a super ripe avocado, World Peas Texas Barbeque, and my favorite mixture of power trail mix with walnuts, raisins, almonds, and sunflower seeds.
