My First Bento

After picking up a cool little lunchbox for only £1.95 last week on dotcomgiftshop I thought I would treat Jack to his first ever Bento lunch. Bento's are Japanese one portion meals and are often elaborately arranged with carved vegetables and food made to look fun. I didn't have any fun stuff so just arranged his lunch in mini muffin cases and placed them in the box. Just seeing it in the box was enough to make Jack gasp 'Wow Mum'. It's a lot more fun than being on a plate isn't it!

  1. That's so true, it is much more fun than a plate! I love the lunch box!

  2. What a very cute lunchbox. I have to agree something more fun about eating it this way. Kinda like a picnic is fun even though just sitting in a blankie outside.
