I think this article is really cute. It’s about making a bento-style lunch. Bento is a box, that’s usually used for Japanese cooking; it has compartments within the box to hold different foods. This article suggests Bento boxes as a fun way to get your kids to eat any kind of lunch. Right now, it’s lunchtime and after looking at these photos my tummy is grumbling. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/09/dining/09bento.html?pagewanted=2&_r= I’d love to know what you think. Give it a read and add your comments below. I wonder… Do you think your kids would be more inclined to eat different things if their lunch was packed in a new fun way? Is it realistic or worth it to put any extra time into those brown paper bag lunches?
