Peanut Butter & Jelly Roll Bento

How do you turn a yummy but boring PB & J into something new? Turn it into a jelly roll!  My kiddo loves when we make her sammis into rolls, pinwheels or jelly rolls ( all means the same). It makes it fun to look at all the layers and colors, swirled up into a yummy bite sized treat. Your not limited to PB & J, try any sammi and see the smiles.

Today’s bento my kiddo (and I hee hee hee) were craving for some PB & J. Who doesn’t love those? So easy to make and fun to eat. (See my demo)

Since summer is here and the fruits are so sweet we have a lot of fruits in today’s bento. I cut some cantaloupe, watermelon and cucumber (cucs from my garden woo hoo0) into flowers with a cookie cutter, added some strawberry and some broccoli,  yellow beans  (again from garden ) with a cut up bell pepper.

Bell peppers are a new addition to my kiddos diet, one day she decided she liked the red bell pepper, I added the orange in hopes she will like them too one day. Just goes to show if you try every once in a while who knows they may just like it, funny kiddo…

Of course the addition of the jelly rolled PB & J and some cuteness by way of picks in middle of fruit and a butterfly.

Momma Says: Jelly Rolls are ooey gooey and fun to eat that what makes lunch exciting.
