Create amazingly good bento box lunches with Fresh Options

9:56:00 PM

My daughter is currently in Grade 1 and it hasn't been smooth-sailing unlike when she was still on Nursery. Of course, they now have more books, more assignments and more activities compared to last year and she's now starting to get picky when it comes to her baon. 

Yes! The struggle is real when it comes to what food and drinks she would like to bring to school and sometimes, we end up at a fast food's drive thru buying her favorite meal. 

Well, I wouldn't want her to get used to eating those not-so-healthy fast food meals so I'm very happy that I bumped into this fancy idea of creating bento box meals that will surely make her lunch fun and nutritious.
