My children love a bento-style lunch. For ages we’ve used divided plates but we were recently sent a Munchkin lunchbox to try out. I knew it would be perfect for picnics but we wanted to try it at home first.
We’re big fans of the Disney film Frozen so we came up with our own Frozen-inspired bento.
The lunchbox had three compartments which were filled with popcorn snow, a ham sandwich with a star cut out and a white yoghurt with blueberries. I added a snowflake babybel too.
It went down pretty well, Big Brother immediately re-named the popcorn snow-corn which I thought was quite sweet. My only worry is that they’re going to expect me to be more adventurous with their food. Luckily I have a stash of picks and cutters ready!
Time for some pancakes at long last. We waited for Daddy to come home from work then helped him in the kitchen.
We bought a special Hello Kitty frying pan so we could make small pancakes and we knew the kids would love the Hello Kitty shape.
They did and ate themselves full.
It rained pretty much all day but we were lucky that there was nothing urgent for us to do but stay indoors and keep dry. At snack time we reached for the Pickled Onion Pom-Bears. For the second year you will be able to get your hands on the Limited Edition Pickled Onion Pom-Bear Halloween snacks!
The snacks have the same light and airy texture that has become synonymous with Pom-Bear. Each pack is less than 100 calories, suitable for vegetarians, gluten free and has no added colours or scary preservatives.
We were sent a box so we could try them out for ourselves and they went down very well! We always keep a stack of Pom-Bear crisps and these are a great seasonal variety. They cost £1.59 for a pack of six, and are available in ASDA, Tesco, Waitrose and NISA.
Perfect for trick or treaters, nibbles or packed lunches!
