So, How does this Bento Box Lunch sound to you?

Its going to be all fruit. Well mostly anyways.

Mini PB and J sandwiches (Most likely about 4 of them.) Mixed fruits such as fresh strawberries,kiwi,banana,peaches. And some Fruit Salad for like a mini dessert.


Do you think I should add more to it? Or change something? I'd love suggestions and comments or anything really.

Sounds very good, if that's what you like.

Personally, I would HAVE to have something savory in amongst the sweet!

maybe some cheese. if you're stuck on fruit, a crisp and tart apple would add a different texture and taste to your bento meal - like a New Zealand Braeburn.

They both sound like fruit salads. Perhaps you can do something to make them different? (Of course, I have no suggestions to help, so it's easy for me to say, huh?) We do bento a lot here. I look to put a starch, fruit, vegetable, and dairy in the bento for my dd for her school lunches. I realize that's not your goal here, but it made me think about the fact that I like to keep them pretty, so I think about color combinations (and more color is healthy). Perhaps if you want to concentrate on fruit, you can think about color combinations?

Well I will be slicing the bananas peaches and strawberries along with kiwi. And the fruit salad is different from the sliced fruits. It has cottage cheese and apples in it. And a apple crisp sounds good. Also, I will be eating it instantly. :) I just want to make a pretty bento haha.
