Easter Bento Babies
I made up this cute Easter Bunny Bento lunch ready for Sammy's last day at preschool before the Easter holidays.
Complete with a hummus rabbit face, a cheese nest and seaweed covered peanuts!
There are some sweet things in this lunch but no chocolate! The house is about to be bursting with chocolate of every description, so this Bento Babies box was a great way to stuff him full of good things. If you are making this for an under one year old then substitute the nuts for grapes.
Featured in this Bento babies box:
- Half a kiwi fruit (disguised with an egg pick)
- Sprig of raw broccoli
- Handful of Goldfish green cheese crackers
- Skewered strawberries
- Carrot sticks
- Pretzel sticks
- Chunk of watermelon
- Hummus bunny face, raisin eyes, carrot nose, caramel lace whiskers, marshmallow jam biscuit ears
- Cheese string nest
- Seaweed covered peanuts (from Tesco)
- Raisins and coated raisins (they look like chocolate eggs don't they!)
- Cheese biscuit pieces
If you are new to the principle of Bento style eating, then check out my page Bento Babies here for more tips and ideas to get you started.
If you are looking for a good sized lunch box then this one from Sistema is perfect. 2 layers and tall enough for the silicone cake cups, not to get squashed.
Have a wonderful Easter time. We are off to Southbourne for an egg hunt at the beach hut!
