Bento Mania #21

So colourful! So nice!

I know the food is nothing to shout about. Simple stuff consist of animal biscuits that BIL bought for the kids from Singapore. Do you remember during your younger days we used to munch on the colourful sugar topping biscuits. This is exactly the same version but of animal shape this time (psst.. actually the animal doesn’t looks like an animal at all. Don’t know what creature. Of course we can tell a rabbit by looking at it’s ear.) Then we have some triangle oranges and sunflower seed chocolates for the sweet tooth.

I have ran out of small bento boxes hence the one in the picture is just some shallow container from Tupperware. I can assured you that there won’t be any room left after I put on the lid so you don’t have to worry if the sunflower seed will roll out from the dish cup. This is also another reason why I have so many different sizes of bento boxes to fit the quantity food I have. Just squeeze everybody in there, use a baran aka separator or side dish cup to separate your food from the dry and the wet. I find the silicon cup is very useful and I love using them so much. They can be bent and shaped anyway you like to make place for the others unlike those plastic dish cup.

I remember quite sometime ago, Eldest Princess told me her sunflower seed chocolates has turned soggy and sticks together because of the warm weather in the afternoon (her lunch break is at 3pm). This time, I had her bento box wrapped with insulating wrap. This is how they looks like:

The insulating wrap can be used for cold or hot food. This item is available in my Market Hall if you are interested to purchase them.

Another bento accessories that I love is the food pick. Beside using them as decorations, a food pick is nothing but a food pick. Cut your food into bite size pieces and the kids happily comping down their food.

    Won’t vitamins be lost if you cut the fruits and let them bring to school and wait till recess to eat?

    true, when you pack for kids or toddlers, its usually food nothing to shout about. Cos there are only so little variety that they would want to eat. I love bento accessories too. I think my bentos would look very dull without my bento accessories.

    BTW, just a thought, an ice pack would be a nice alternative too. Kimberly loves her disney princess ice pack.

    Love your bento. very colourful. Now to check out your market hall for other items that you may have.

    Princess, I think you mean insulating. Insulin is what your body produces to break down sugar.
