Getting started with BENTO – the why and how

Getting started with BENTO - the why and how

The Basics of Bento

My friend Sarah of Bentoriffic has written an excellent post about bento that answers the two most important questions:

  • WHY?
  • HOW?

Sarah writes:

“I don’t know a parent around that doesn’t have a child who is picky about one thing or another. When my oldest daughter was 2, she only wanted milk, pasta and cheese…every. single.meal. I had to bribe her with other things, but she seemed to fill up on dairy all day long and then not eat well. I was chatting with a dear friend whose children were older about how to interest my little one in healthier foods. She said she used bento boxes to get her boys to try new foods. I didn’t even know what they were at the time other than a Japanese box. She sent me a few images, and I told her she was nuts if she thought I had that kind of time. Hahaha! Silly me, did I eat those words. And I owe her a huge thanks for changing the way my family eats today.”
