Pizza Lunchable Bento

I made another lunchable bento, but this time it's a Pizza lunchable made with pita bread cut into wedges. I even made this lunchable with a side of fruit and a dessert like the prepackaged version you can buy at the store.
  • Whole wheat pita
  • Pizza sauce
  • Low Fat Mozzarella cheese
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Blueberries
  • Chocolate Graham crackers
  • Fluff
  • Mini Semi-sweet Chocolate chips
Even though this seems like such a childish lunch I really enjoyed eating it. For some reason I have been thinking about my childhood lately, and having this for lunch yesterday really brought back memories.

If your kid is always asking for those pre-packaged (high sodium and high calorie) lunches, this is a great idea instead. Plus it will save you a LOT of money too!
It's also great to have the ability to choose what goes into the lunch instead of having to get the one's with candy or sugary juice boxes.
This is also something you can pack the night before and leave in the refrigerator, and because it's so simple to make you could make it the before school too, because it's quick and easy. I do recommend putting the sauce and the cheese into small sealable containers if you are giving it to you kid to bring to school (or if you are bringing it to work) that way it won't mix around and become a huge mess before you have a chance to eat it. Also having a small spreader or a plastic spoon would be good for spreading the sauce onto the pita.
Happy Lunching!


  1. That's super cute and look much tastier than lunchables!

  2. I found your blog via What's for Lunch at I just made the decision to start serving Bento lunches to my daughter and I have lots to learn. I'll be visiting lots of blogs! The pizza is a good idea...healthier and tastier and cheaper than Lunchables!
