Bento #7 and Bento #8



This is Ashley's Bento #7, last Friday's Bento


It's pasta with cheese cut out in Hello Kitty cookie cutter on top.

Grapes peeled , halved and skewered on the side.

I cheated on it. It isn't homecooked.


I open up a can of Heinz's Can range of baby food for Stage 2 , ie. chewable pieces, Spaghetti Hoops and Sausage.

Hadn't any carbo to go with it either. So packed this into her bag as well.


This mini pack cookies comes in a variety pack of chocolate sprinkled cookies, Dinasaur shaped one sided chocolate cookie with smarties on top and etc but I thought this vanilla plain ones are the least messiest.

Whatever Ashley didnt finish in school, she would normally eat it on the way home from school.

This Tuesday's Bento is somewhat better. Bento # 8.


Its mini doughnut fried and topped with shifted icing sugar, with stripes of steamed carrot on the side.

The Hello Kitty baran divider was to divide the somewhat damp carrot strips from the other food but i pushed it to the back to take this pic.


There's milo balls cereal underneath the Hello Kitty shaped cheese pieces. She finished the whole lot in school yesterday, save for some leftover carrot strips.

The good thing about packing bento for your picky eater toddler is, you can ensure they eat at least a portion of your food instead of rejecting all the food offered in school.

Will post Thursday's and this morning's Bento when i have time.

Been up since 5 am preparing agar-agar as well as skewered weiner, zucchini and quail eggs sticks for Kimberly's Teachers Day party in school. Drove over and dropped them off at the school's guard house for the guards to bring them over to Kimberly's class, and then scoot home quickly because I left Ashley with her dad and her dad couldnt handle her if she woke up crying.

Fortunately Ashley didnt wake up during the whole time I was preparing food for Kimberly, else I would have been hindered from contributing party food on KImberly's behalf. I think her teachers are making a good effort to guide my lazy child and this is one way I can show my appreciation. I could have just bought 2 dozen doughnuts from Dunkin Donut like last year but I thought it would be nice to have a home made feel to the food.

Hokay.... now to draft that defence which I have been procrastinating for about a week now.

Have a great weekend ahead, all.

  • Nice colour combination on the bento :)

    Is that a tray behind the seat? Looks like HK, so cute! I have never seen this in S'pore. Good idea to have that for a trip, the kids can have their meal without much spillage.

  • gosh.. from diapers to bento! what's next? hehe.. wow! those bentos are so so so pretty! and that Hello Kitty (?) tray is super cool!

  • Chanel, i got most of the ideas from Annabel Karmel's cookbook for kids and from kookyculinary and LZmommy's blogs. Most of my containers are Kimberly's old ones.i only bought about 4 new ones, and out of 4, 2 of them are like RM5.90 from 100yen shop.

    Yep, LZmommy, thats a tray. And its a lifesaver. I dont have to you know, like , lean over and pass her food every now and then. I just place all on the tray before i start to drive.

    Hee hee..Sting.from diaper addict to bento addict. Plus Ashley is potty trained. I would be selling her diapers pretty soon too.

  • Where did you buy the Heinz spaghetti for toddlers and Sniggles?

    By Blogger Health Freak Mommy, At 7:11 PM  

  • Hi, Health freak mommy. I got the sniggles from Cold Storage at Ikano. It is a variety pack of 5 different cookies. White frosted ones, smarties topped ones, etc.

    The Heinz is from UK. My brother and sister in law resides and works there and whenever they comes back, they bring back a carton or two in variety for Ashley. They came back twice the year before and last year so Ashley has a steady flow of supplies. you can see the range from this site.

    can also get from australia's heinz but the range is more limited

  • someone left a comment asking where i got the car tray from, My toddler deleted the comment, i think, by clicking the trashcan thingy when she climb on my chair whithout my knowledge.

    To that someone, you can get the car tray from ebay but there is no need. Brenda is bringing them in soon. Just contact her.
