Anyone who takes care of kids, especially parents, knows how hard it can be to get kids to eat.  

Many children are notoriously picky eaters, and it is easy to fall into the trap of letting them eat only one type of food rather than hem and haw over getting them to make more diverse choices.

Need a fun solution to add some color to your kids’ diets? Mom Samantha Lee came up with some original and playful story-themed bento lunches to get her children to sit down and have a meal. These are not your average lunchables or PBJ! They are themed, creative and colorful. In other words: totally irresistible to children. What’s more, they’re easy enough to make that you can do it too.

Samantha’s imaginative approach reflects her belief in minimizing the wasting of food and shows her insistence on using as many types of new ingredients as possible to diversify her little ones' palettes. It is wonderful to see how a little imagination and the right ingredients can go such a long way!
