Yummy Kawaii Bento
Making school lunches for children that are fussy eaters can be quite a chore. Last year my daughter’s school lunches, that I made for her, came home often almost untouched. Parents like myself are also getting bored of making the same old soggy sandwiches every single day, and our fussy eaters don’t even show any appreciation when they return their lunchboxes with uneaten veggies and scrappy bits. That all changed this year when I started to get creative with my daughter’s lunches, no more sandwiches and no more lunches coming home uneaten. I find this book is one that has created some great ideas to help out.
What if you could entice your children to eat balanced lunches every day?
How do you transform the routine of unoriginal packed lunches into a joy for yourself?
Inspired by the Japanese tradition of the bento box, a home-packed meal served in a box with compartments containing different foods, Yummy Kawaii Bento reinvents the concept of the stale packed lunch. Learn to make your very own creative bento boxes and turn the law of “don’t play with your food” on its head by re-imagining dishes as colorful cartoon characters. Entice your children to eat better with these delicious recipes.
