Sometimes, Tz would come back with his bentos almost untouched…. you can imagine how worried I would be because it meant that he was on an empty stomach for more that half a day after breakfast. Its always mind-boggling to think up what to prepare for him. I believe most parents who prepare their kids’ lunch face the same dilemma. Thats why I always try to put various different types of food in his bento hoping he will at least eat some of them. In this bento, I made spam meat sandwiches and udon-yaki. Cut out some comic characters out of nori to give him a gentle reminder (more like stern reminder) to eat his lunch. Surprisingly, it did work! He finished 80% of the bento. I was so happy! Probably next time, when he is able read simple words, I will leave a note in his bento box to nicely “threaten” him, ò⇔ó .
