My fun food for today is a car themed bento lunch, made in the Yumbox, which is proving to be one of my favourite lunch boxes ever! I have had so many comments and questions since I started using it, mainly asking where to buy it from, so I thought I'd just mention that it is now available to buy here in the UK in the Eats Amazing Shop and you can also find it on sale in the US and Australia.
Back to the lunch - I started with a hard boiled egg, which I moulded into a car shape using an egg mould, before popping into a silicone cup once cool. I then toasted and sliced up a whole wheat pitta bread, topping it with a car cut from a slice of carrot using a mini bento cutter. On the side he had mini traffic light vegetable kebabs (red pepper, carrot and green pepper cut into circles using a circle bento cutter, then skewered on polka dot picks in traffic light colours), a kiwi fruit, peeled, sliced and decorated with car picks, and a portion of organic natural yoghurt, topped with a few traffic light coloured sprinkles. I had intended to add some houmous to spread on the pitta bread, but somebody (I'm looking at you Mr Amazing!) had eaten it all, so I filled the smallest compartment with dried cranberries instead.
I popped a spoon and a fork from our mini bento cutlery set into his lunch bag too. Small Child thoroughly enjoyed this lunch - anything featuring cars or other machines always goes down well with him!
