Easy Vegetarian Bento Box for Kids
This recipe is sponsored by Sprouts Farmers Market, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
This healthy bento box is so delicious, you don’t have to tell your kids it’s good for them, too! With a hummus and veggie wrap, adorable cheese cubes, fresh fruit, and addictive peanut butter puffs, your kids will be begging for this easy vegetarian lunch every day.
I made the decision to homeschool this year, and while that definitely means things are going to be different for my family, I think keeping up some of our usual school year routines is important. Getting up and getting dressed (no pajama days!) and going to our “classroom” helps get both Leo and me in the school mindset, and having a healthy lunch is part of that. So, sure, maybe it won’t make it to a lunch box every day, but sitting down with a filling lunch helps give his mind (and me) a break and gets him ready for the rest of the day!
I love to buy food for my whole family from Sprouts. Healthy, high-quality, and super fresh, they keep us nourished, energized, and ready to face whatever the world has in store.
Why This Recipe Is So Good
- This adorable lunch is so easy to whip up, whether it’s for lunch at school or break time during homeschooling. With fresh, healthy ingredients, your kid will feel full and energized for the rest of the day.
- I absolutely love shopping at Sprouts for ingredients, and this easy hummus wrap and sides were an absolute hit with my kids. I add cheese cubes in cute shapes, a hard-boiled egg, fresh blueberries, and Sprouts Peanut Butter Puffs, which both of my littles are HUGE fans of.
How To Make It
The full recipe & ingredients list are below, but here you’ll find a quick overview for making this recipe perfectly, along with useful tips and info!
Spread hummus on the wrap, making sure it goes all the way to the edge.
Place the lettuce leaf on top of the hummus, then sprinkle the veggies on top.
Tightly roll the wrap, then cut it into pinwheel slices.
Serve with cubes of cheese or slices pressed into cute shapes, fresh berries or fruit, and Sprouts Peanut Butter Puffs.
- Can’t convince your kids to eat hummus? No problem! You can easily swap it out for cream cheese, like Sprouts Cream Cheese. It’s rbST Free, so you can still feel great about your kids eating it.
- I used chopped tomatoes, thinly sliced cucumbers, and shredded carrots in my hummus wrap, but feel free to use veggies your kids like or salad leftovers. Other delicious options could be zucchini, halved cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, or even avocado slices.
- To make this lunch gluten free, just use a gluten free wrap. Sprouts Peanut Butter Puffs are gluten free, too, so no worries there!
- I made my cheese cubes into cute shapes by using small cookie cutters on cheese I had cut from a block of cheddar.
