While traveling across the country (which we do a LOT) we have decided to not eat out. This is because 1) my child has food allergies, 2) it’s expensive, and 3) we NEVER feel good after eating a meal at a restaurant and then hitting the road again.

We decided to do Bento style lunches and snack while traveling. These make it easy to pass to the kids while in the car or to be able to stop quickly and grab a bite to eat at a picnic spot! This site here has some awesome ideas!

Miss G has a hear pocket sandwich and 2 small containers of dried fruit and nuts packed in her sistema container.

And she has a LunchBots Uno with black seedless grapes…
