Bento Workshop at Rustans Shangrila Mall

Last May 17, i conducted a bento workshop under Manila Workshops for Rustans entitled “Creative and Healthy Lunches for  your kids”.

It was a fun filled learning afternoon for kids and their moms and dads. I gave a them a brief talk about nutrition, tips and guidelines on how to  pack bento boxes, food handling and safety and of course the basic tools that they need to make their bento boxes.

I made a fox bread bento with this sweet little girl Ikia. We had a great time!

We made the Open faced tuna Fox bento using  2 slices of wheat bread, cheese and tuna spread. 2 slices of cucumber for the eyes and blue berries, halved for the eye detail. The ears are made of slices of strawberries and the nose is made from  black grapes, halved. Whiskers are made from nori. Ikia picked strawberries, apples and blueberries to complete the fox bread bento box.

The lady bug bento was the second bento that i prepared with the little girls.
