baking Bento

Unicorn bento

My 3 year is becoming a fussy little eater which is a shame as the rest of us really enjoy our food. Sometimes a fun little bento lunch helps, but not always. She loves to help me prepare lunch so I’m hopeful that this is just another stage that she will eventually grow out of.

I’m always on the look out for a theme she will like. Now she loves minions and the Despicable Me films. She even has her own unicorn, just like Agnes. She enjoyed the minions themed bento I made recently so I thought I would try to make her a unicorn themed one.

I had a couple of ideas for a unicorn bento. In the film Despicable Me Agnes says “It’s so fluffy” which gave me a great idea for a sandwich – fairy bread with a unicorn cut out. I added a rainbow of sweets to finish it off.

To balance out the sweets I added cherries, tomatoes and cucumber slices and used some fun bento picks

So I’m the first to admit it wasn’t the healthiest lunch but at least she enjoyed eating it. It was a great excuse to watch Despicable Me in the afternoon too!

    Lovely idea. The unicorn sandwich is great. It’s making me think I should try something different for the childrens sports day picnic tomorrow 🙂
