Caterpillar Bento

Lemon risotto with asparagus makes a fresh summer bento lunch. The caterpillar is made of yellow tomatoes, cherry tomatoes and raw purple carrots, with chive detail. He sits on a bed of red lettuce. I find the vegetables are more likely to get eaten if they're cute! Don't you think? Fruit section includes kiwi, apricot, strawberry and blackberry.

This bento is for my 6 year old son, and he'll take it to summer fun, show his buddies, and get a healthy & nutritious meal all in one. Love this bento box, btw. When your bento is cute, the transparent lid serves to show it off ;)
