I'm not really a morning person so breakfast is usually a simple affair in my family, unless we go out to eat haha. This morning I decided to make an easy brekky obento for the bub, inspired by the Lego colours she played with. Got a red rectangular box and added in a few of her favourite food, with her little Duplo Lego man for fun.
Obento-making can be as complicated or as easy as you make it. Oh, I do have the tools to make a complicated キャラ弁 (kyaraben, character obentos) but I'm too lazy!! (><)" My mum makes it for the little pumpkin sometimes though, and she loves it! I should really start to put more effort into this to entice her to eat a wider variety of food...
Anyway a really simple obento would just require you to compartmentalise the different food, add a few kawaii utensils/designs and that's it! :) Today's brekky obento consists of
- cut baby bananas
- baked cashews
- Meiji Choco Baby bits
- homemade tapioca cake with coconut shavings
- small packet of Milo
What kind of breakfast do you prepare for your kids?
UPDATE: The boy saw my Lego colours-inspired obento and thought it wasn't fun enough, so he built a Lego "obento box" with the little pumpkin's Duplo blocks :)
She shall have this for her afternoon snack heh.
- Meiji Marble chocolate snack
- Jeju Cactus chocolate from recent Korean trip
- Reese peanut butter cup
- Honey stars
