Following on from the success of the monkey themed lunch I made earlier this week, I thought it would be fun to pick a different animal, and went with an elephant for today's lunch. I have been sorting out cupboards recently in an attempt to get my house under control (very much a work in progress!), and came across a stash of forgotten bento goodies in the process. It was like Christmas all over again! Included in the stash were some wonderful plunger cookie cutters that my Mum bought me for Christmas last year, and some bento picks and flags that I didn't know I had, what a bonus! The little elephant cutter was perfect for this lunch, and worked equally well on sandwiches and melon.
In this lunch Small Child had ham sandwiches on seeded bread, cut and shaped with an elephant plunger cutter, raw yellow pepper strips and sugar snap peas, decorated with an elephant pick and an elephant themed mini flag, cantaloupe melon, cut into elephant shapes using the plunger cutter again, sesame seed bread sticks, a mini Babybel cheese, peeled, cut in half and topped with elephant picks, and some organic natural yoghurt. I filled the dip compartment with onion and garlic dip for Small Child to dip his veggies in, and added an elephant design mini spoon and fork to his lunch bag.
Small Child seems to have been enjoying his lunches more than ever recently - there was certainly nothing left of this one when I picked him up from school. I think it's because the Yumbox holds the perfect portion size for him - there's no temptation to add a bit more food 'just in case' so nothing gets wasted.
