Kids love to try foods that bring a smile to their faces, and will often eat things they wouldn't otherwise try. For example, they'll love an adorable bear cub made from brown bread, peanut butter and jelly nestled on a bed of blueberries. Cut watermelon into hearts, and tuck them next to a ham sandwich shaped like ballet slippers for your budding ballerina. Create building bricks from healthy cheese, carrots and cucumbersand#8212;or a hot dog octopus, swimming across a sea of cucumber. Picky eaters or not, they'll try it!andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Wendy Thorpe Copley writes the popular bento blog Wendolonia, which takes the traditional Japanese concept of bentoand#8212;a single meal packed at home in a reusable containerand#8212;and Americanizes it. Using simple ingredients found in any grocery store, Wendy creates entertaining meals that are sure to delight even the most finicky eater. Some of the fun and easy bento creations here include:andlt;Bandgt;andlt;ulandgt;andlt;liandgt; Princess Bentoandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Rock and Roll Bentoandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Snowman Bentoandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Butterfly Bentoandlt;/liandgt;andlt;liandgt; Farm Yard Animals Bentoandlt;/ulandgt;andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Besides being great fun to look at, bento lunches are a healthy way to enjoy food while keeping portions in check.
