This year, I vow to be a little more organized. At least a little. So to help me, I made these printables to help me plan out school lunches. Hope they help you in your bento journey!
I grouped food suggestions into major food categories: protein, veggies, fruit, grain/starch, and dairy. Of course, these are mere suggestions and many categories overlap, so feel free to use it as loose inspiration vs. a hard-and-fast guide. I tried to mix in quick and easy with not-so-common ideas to help get your creative juices flowing, too. Click here or on the image for the full PDF. Stick them in a clear document saver, or laminate, and write on it with a fine-tip dry erase marker!
WEEKLY BENTO PLANNER
Again, some categories will overlap or not apply for your family, so not every box will be filled for every day. But there’s something extremely satisfying about sitting down for two minutes and writing out a plan–regardless of whether you stick to it faithfully or not. Click here or on the image for the PDF.
I may work on a second version since many document holders I find are portrait vs. landscape. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Here’s a different version! Click here or on the image for the PDF.
