From: EatingWell.com, July 2017

This kid-friendly twist on classic Cobb salad gives children the choice to eat all the healthy ingredients—veggies, turkey, eggs, bacon and avocado—together or separately. Packing it all in a bento box makes it easy to tote to school and keeps all the ingredients from touching, a plus for picky eaters.
