The butterfly’s wing design was made using pepperoni and tomatoes layered. JDaniel really isn’t into lunch meat right now. I do still include it in lunches just encase he decides he likes it again. The body of the butterfly is made of a slice of cheese cut into the body of the butterfly. Small pieces of cheese are the butterflies antennas.
There is also a small butterfly created using a clementine orange and a blueberries. If you follow this blog regularly, you know that JDaniel hasn’t been big on carrots. I do keep trying to put them in snacks and lunches. This time the carrot was paired with a slice of cucumber.
This snack Bento isn’t filled to the brim with food and I did that on purpose. A small snack seems to leave JDaniel hungry for lunch or dinner later. If this snack had included a whole clementine with 12 blueberries, carrots with dip and a fully decorated butterfly, JDaniel would have been full at mealtime.
If JDaniel is full at meal time, he tends to want to take tiny bites of food and then flutter around the room. I would rather that he eat his meal and nibble on a snack.
