The night before her first day of "school," I let her browse through my bento cupboard to choose which container she'd like her lunch packed in, and she chose the limited edition Yumbox Panino in Tiffany Blue. She practiced opening and closing it, so I knew she'd be successful on her own at school!

Lunch Fit for a Little Princess!

The Early Childhood classrooms at our school frown on treats in lunches and snacks, so instead of a small bit of candy, I sent a Naturebox Blueberry Almond Bite in a little Disney Princess Rapunzel treat container from Easter. (This doesn't mean that I won't ever send candy or sugary treats. Just that I'll try and limit it to Fridays, when is my traditional treat day, instead of Fridays-and-whenever-the-theme-makes-me-want-to-use-a-treat-box...!)
Since I had already included a little "treat" in the princess box, I scrounged around in my pantry and fridge to find something to put in the small treat compartment built in to all the Yumbox trays. I decided on olives, since they count as a "fat" rather than a vegetable, so are good to limit to small servings! And both my girls loooove them. Yay!
