I'm happy to introduce our guest blogger this week, Diana from Diana Rambles. She is a crafty work at home mom who has a great blog. She is sharing with us her Bento Basics, Part 1.
I am starting this series of tips here at Diana Rambles called Bento Basics to teach others how to make sure your child is eating healthy with fun lunches.
Tip: Introduce new foods by making their food fun! I didn't want to be sending junk food in my daughter's lunch, so when I give her new foods or ones she's not a fan of, I make them cute by using a cookie cutter, decorating, or making it fun.
|Nutella introduced in a butterfly shaped sandwich. Skewered blueberries adds to the fun!|
|Introduced cantaloupe (starfish) and edamame in this under the sea themed bento.|
|My daughter won't eat peas at dinner, but she will in a cute lunch!|
|Disposable restaurant container used for a road trip bento for my teen son.|
|Daddy-Daughter dance theme in a muffin tin for lunch at home. Silicone liners from Dollar Tree.|
|Angry Birds packed in a Rubbermade container. Nori (wrapper used in sushi) for black accents.|
|This was my very first bento.|
|My panda turned out kind of creepy, but she loved it!|
|This is supposed to be a flower garden.|
