How to Make a Train Bento Lunch Box

Here’s how to make an easy baseball train lunch box using a sandwich, cheese and chicken nuggets

Make the cars of the train by cutting a sandwich into quarters with cheese circles and rectangles for wheels and windows.

Antichoking warning: Remember to remove toothpicks and cut up blueberries, grapes, carrots and other food for children under 4. See our Antichoking guide for more information.

For a to-go lunch, wrap each quarter in plastic wrap and pack side by side.

Pack carrot and celery sticks with dip—peanut butter is shown here, but you can include yogurt, ranch dressing or hummus. The veggie sticks will make the train tracks.

When it's lunch time, have your kid lay out the carrots and celery as train tracks. Line up the sandwich quarters to make the train.

Pre-peel a clementine to make fruit snacking easier for your kid at lunchtime, and stack grapes—or any fruit your kid loves—on toothpicks to make mini fruit skewers.
