Bento of oyakodon, with okra and chive detail, purple carrot stars, sweet potatoes, one of the last remaining yellow pear tomatoes on my now-scraggly bush, olive and feta. Dinosaur Egg plums and black grapes.
I am a former research scientist turned stay-at-home-mom of 2 who got started with bento in an effort to help my kids learn that eating healthy and nutritious foods can be fun and cute. I make a bento lunch for my 12yo (7th grader) son & my 9yo (3rd grader) daughter every school day, and post the pictures on my sherimiya ♥ flickr photostream. Here in this blog is where I describe each bento, and you'll also get a peek inside our family adventures. Thanks for taking a look, and please let me know what you think ^-^!
