Take the classic story of The three Little Pigs from fairy tale to food time with Bento Boxes!
As many Boston Babies prepare for their first year of school this fall, it can be an unsettling time for both toddlers and parents. While many moms and dads have had their little ones in enrichment classes, or other child care services, sending your tiny tot to a more structured school setting can still be a very real adjustment for everyone.

This allows children to both acclimate to a set schedule through structure, while looking forward to the little treats and personal touches along the way that soften those sometimes scary new experiences.
