Today I'm sharing an easy car bento lunch that took no time at all to put together. We're well into the last half term of the school year so easy, quick and zero effort are my buzzwords when it comes to packing lunches at the moment! Lunches have been simple but healthy, but always with a touch of fun thrown in, even if it's just a few picks popped in at the end or a fun sandwich cut with a sandwich cutter - my Lunch Punch cutters have been my saviour here for helping me create fun sandwiches with minimal effort! It takes literally a few seconds more to turn a sandwich into a car like this one.
It has been a while since I shared a fun bento lunch on the blog - I've been so busy creating and sharing lots of recipes instead, but I have still been making bento lunches daily for Small Child I promise, and even for Small Baby on occasion! Small Baby is now two - no longer a baby and Small Child is getting ever bigger, so I really must come up with some new nicknames for them soon!
Anyway, back to this lunch! In this car bento Small Child had a ham and houmous car shaped sandwich on seeded bread. I cut the sandwich into the car shape using a cutter from the Lunch Punch VRRRM! set and added black grape wheels to decorate. On the side he had a mini Babybel cheese, raw orange pepper slices, sugar snap peas, blueberries and strawberries, which I decorated with traffic themed cupcake picks. I finished the lunch off with an Organix oaty bar, chopped into pieces to fit into the treat well and decorated with a car bento pick. This lunch was packed in our gelato blue Yumbox Panino bento box.
