My secret last year: Every morning, I would browse through a file folder of images that I have gathered that I knew would be a hit with the kids.  I would choose foods that we had available to throw into my make-shift bento box.  This year, I will just flip through my fave bento photos on my iPad to save paper.  Here is what I have come up with…
