Hey, what's for lunch?

I was certain this would be a good month to 'practice' with making lunches... getting ready for summer camp!  But instead, I have actually spent most of the last couple weeks dealing with some news from our allergist.  My little darlin', John Paul, has had a very tough spring.  His allergies have been nuts. 

Apparently our area is one of the worst in the country for pollens, which exacerbates food sensitivities. 

I almost ran screaming from the room when I heard the words "rotation diet." 

So, much of my 'food energy' has been sapped learning about food families and puzzle-piecing menus together.  I've been more concerned with just making sure there's food to eat over worrying about presentation!

Nevertheless, tomorrow I will be putting up my review of the Go Green! Lunchbox:


And on Saturday I will be putting up a review on our BEABA food trays and snack pod:


And don't forget to leave a comment to be entered in the drawing for some fun bento tools.


  1. sorry for the new food challenge. you are such a good momma. exploring our family's potential allergies terrifies me.

  2. I've loved your bento posts. Bento style lunches are something I've been interested in for a while but have not found the time to try. Thanks for all of the info!
