Bento Lunches: A fun way to get your kids to eat healthier!

I recently discovered the craft of making Bento lunches for my kiddos.  Basically, a bento lunch could be described at a portioned lunch.  It’s often made to look like fun characters or themes.  The best part about Bento lunches for me personally is that it gets my kids to actually eat the healthy food I give them!  They now eat their fruits, veggies, rice,  eggs, and whatever else I put in there…as long as I make it look appetizing to them.  I’m amazed at the stuff they will eat now, just because I took a few extra minutes to make it look “cute”.  Bento lunches are a great idea if you have a picky eater like mine, and they don’t take as much time as you would think.  Give it a try and see what kinds of foods you can get your child to try!  Here are a few pics of Bento lunches that I have done in the past.
