I chose EasyLunchBoxes for all our lunches, since they're the easiest for her to use in the car. And they fit enough food for a pregnant Momma. Without having to cut everything into fiddly little pieces to get them to fit into a traditional bento box.
Kids Science Class (my first one. I'll post about it later. Promise!) And while the park was offering free lunches for the kids, I still needed to pack food for myself. We ended up moving Little Gym camp to a different day, since she had just come down with a runny nose and cough and I wanted to give her body a chance to rest.

Ironic, isn't it? I don't like cooking (nor am I very good at it,) yet I do a Kids Cooking Class for my MOMS Club. I hate touching food, yet I try and make healthy meals for my kid. I really hope child number two doesn't break me of all desire to keep bothering to try and be a decent Mom. Although I wouldn't have to touch lunchmeats anymore...
