Making lunch fun-Octopus dogs
Bet you were thinking I was making some gross new hot dog with tentacles. EWWWW!
Have you ever heard of a Bento box? Neither had I until recently and I love BENTO Boxes!!! This is a Japanese tradition for serving meals in cool containers. It is a simple concept but oh how I adore it. My favorite part is it is all about portion size and balance. I have never seen the kids so excited to eat fruits and veggies, and honestly it only takes a few minutes more to take a simple meal from boring to extraordinary!
How cute is that? What kid wouldn’t like to eat that cutie up?
I adore how portable it is! Look no plastic baggies to fill up the landfill!
A morning snack bento A blueberry scone, grapes, blueberries, banana chips, yogurt and a little pudding. Yummy!
I don’t have any of the fancy tools nor do I even have fancy boxes but it works for us. I picked up my little containers at the dollar store and I love that the little ones fit right inside. Even Prince Charming loves when I pack him a Bento box. I picked up the “Yum-Yum Bento book at the library and for more ideas you can check out this really fun blog:
