Bucatini bento lunch

Bucatini bento lunch


Bucatini lunch for preschooler

Contents of preschooler lunch: Orange, cherries, grapes, figs, and cut-up bucatini with tomato sauce.

Morning prep time: 3 minutes, using leftover sauced bucatini.

Packing: What looks like macaroni here actually started out as long tubes of bucatini, but that’s difficult for a preschooler to eat neatly. To cut it up quickly and neatly, I skipped the knife and cutting board and went right for clean kitchen scissors. After I put the leftover bucatini in the little nested Thomas the Tank Engine container, I cut it up with the kitchen scissors directly in the container, Korean-style. Very fast and convenient, and Bug was able to then eat this with a little fork. The fruit was all finger food.
