Twin bento lunches today, using spinach yakisoba: I tossed the noodles along with chopped baby bok choy, sliced hot dogs and onions. Both kids love this meal so I've piled it in here. MisterMan gets a half mandarin (with blueberry and radish face), luscious strawberry and black grapes alongside while TinySprite gets nearly exactly the same stuff. Love these double bento deals!
In other exciting news, #Bento4Japan has exceeded $1500 in funds raised for Japan Disaster Relief -- and it's still going strong. I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the bento shopping community; you all have the biggest hearts!
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 9yo (4th grader) son & my 5yo kindergartener girl 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 ^-^!
