De start of Bento Making...

Cavan started K1 this year and I'm challenged to prepare lunch boxes for him. His kindy hours extended to 12.30pm (4 hours) vs last year was 11.30am (3 hours) as goverment made it mandatory for pre-schoolers to have longer hours in school.

We enrolled him for additional Mandarin Language Program and thus Cavan has to stay back in school 3 days a week. He will have a 1 hour lunch break before his additional Mandarin class commence thus I have to prepare lunch box for him. It's rather expensive to have his lunch caterred for in school.

With this, I will be posting up the lunch boxes I've prepared :)

Bento #1 (Chinoz ~ 12 Jan 2010)

fried meehoon with prawns and fish cake, car shaped hard boil egg,
orange and cucumber

Cavan only ate all the prawns, the egg white, all the oranges and few slices of cucumber. Left behind was the egg yolk, the meehoon and 2-3 slices of cucumber!!

Picky eater? Yes!

Bento #2 (Fusion Musion ~ 13 Jan 2010)

fried pasta with broccoli, sweet corns and carrots, grapes

2nd day and not bad, he only left 1-2 mouthfuls of the pasta and finished all the grapes!

I have a day rest from making lunch box on 15 Jan 2010 as his school declared holiday utilising goverment approved holidays for kindy as the teachers needed to attended a training. Good too as I'm so sleepy waking up so so early to prepare his lunch and at the same time prepared my own lunch to work. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!! hehehe....

Till the next Bento... :)
