Recipes for Fun Nutrition Test
Bento boxes are the Japanese versions of lunch boxes. While these are appropriate for people of all ages, making a bento box for a kid can be a fun challenge when you try to make it so cute and attractive that your child can't help but finish everything that's in it!
This will also help you include items such as vegetables or fruit that may not be your child's favorite but should be eaten to ensure 100% nutrition.
The best way to make a fun bento box is to first plan what will go in it. Look at your protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and fruits so you get an idea of what you can make from them. This may be sound hard, but it gets easier as you go along.
Next, decide on a theme based on the food. This can be anything, from the season (like summer) to a favorite cartoon or even a certain place like your garden or the jungle. Remember mommies, the closer the theme is to your child's heart, the more likely he or she will eat everything, so choose well!
Line the bento box with wax paper. Place the fish burger on the left side. Put the lettuce strips on the right side, and put the octodogs over them. Place the apple pieces at the bottom of the box, and the carrot and cucumber pieces at the top (round parts should be facing up).
Don't forget that no matter how nice the bento box contents are, they still need to satisfy all of your kid's needs. Make sure that milk is always there for 100% nutrition!* Lactum 3+/6+, now made even healthier with Healthy-Nutri Blend,** is perfect because your child will surely love the taste.
