Road to Bento

Saturday, October 01, 2011

It started out as a quest to get my kid to eat more of a variety of food.

First, we tried a "fun" way to eat the food - he picked up chopsticks right away :)



Then, I started serving his food in compartments -- and, chopsticks seem to have been replaced with toothpicks (not the wisest of ideas for a toddler, but hey... if it gets food from the plate to his belly, I'm gonna try it):



And, I started cutting cute little shapes:



All of this has led me to Bento-style lunches and has led to the kid eating more interesting, more healthy, and just plain *more* food.

Another post (and pics!) about All Bento will be following, but for now....
