Adorable Snowman Bento Lunch

Jan 1, 2015

Here is a really fun and really easy winter lunch for kids featuring an adorable snowman sandwich, snowman noses (carrot sticks) and a festive fruit salad. You won’t need any special tools to make this fun lunch and your kids will absolutely love it!

What You’ll Need

  • 1 sandwich on white bread (I made a ham, cheese, and lettuce sandwich)
  • black olives
  • baby carrot sticks
  • ranch veggie dip
  • a handful of raspberries
  • 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced

How To Make It

I made this lunch using a Rubbermaid Lunchblox Lunch kit

1. Place your prepared sandwich in the large sandwich box. Place two black olive ends on the top of the sandwich for the eyes. Slice another black olive into small pieces and place them on the sandwich for the snowman’s mouth. Slice a triangle out of one of the baby carrots and place it on the sandwich for a nose. You’ve now made a snowman!

2. Fill one small container with baby carrot sticks (snowman noses), and another small container with ranch veggie dip.

3. Fill the last container with fresh raspberries and sliced kiwi for a healthy red and green fruit salad.

This yummy snowman lunch is simple to make and an awesome healthy lunch for kids. They’re going to love it!  Enjoy!
