I’m a Bento Enthusiast!
I admit I can’t stop myself buying or collecting Bento accessories from lunch boxes, cutters, baran, small cups to divide portion of anything I will put into my kid’s meal.
Bento is home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice, fish or meat, cooked vegetables usually on bento boxes. It can be disposable container to hand crafted ware.
Why I love Bento?
– My son is a picky eater, so it was a success for me when I tried making simple shapes out of the rice and meat that I have prepared.
– Making bento meals is so fun.
– Perfect bonding moment with my children and they share whatever shapes or design they want.
– I can prepare healthy and tasty food for my kids and make sure it is nutritionally balanced.
– Bento looks attractive and appetizing to the children who always avoid to try new taste of food.
– I am saving a lot when preparing what I cooked for them.
– My children looks forward to create another new meal and excited to share with their classmates or friends.
