1, 2, 3 sandwich bentos!


Buttermilk sandwich bread is the carb of the day, with sandwiches for kids and grown-ups.

My son has rolled-up sandwiches — these are like wraps, using pressed bread in place of tortillas or lavash, then wrapped in plastic wrap (twisted at the ends) to keep everything together and fresh. One is ham, and is decorated with number cutouts of ham. The other is peanut butter, and has banana number cutouts on a base of Nutella. He’s also got fresh pineapple (cut small), blueberries and a cheese wedge.

I have curried egg salad sandwich on toasted bread, with kiwi and blueberries in my new Afternoon Tea bento box.

My husband is using the Laptop Lunchbox today, with an egg salad sandwich and a piece of lasagna with extra sauce. The pineapple was really juicy, so I covered its container (and the sandwich container) with Glad Press & Seal wrap to keep everything really separate.

  1. Looks beautiful, so vibrant with so many colours! And I really like the idea of the numbers on the sandwiches :)

  2. Thanks! I had some tiny number cutters on hand that I used. The fun part is that when my son saw this bento, he said, “one, two, three!” :-) Now I can understand why some parents want to make cute lunches for their preschoolers… (within reason)

  3. That’s great! Then he both learns new things and get a nice healthy lunch as well :)
