They say appearances are everything – and presentation is key.

Who would not want to eat these? (You see veggies form part of everything!)
My daughter will love eating these – especially Sid of Ice Age, Pooh Bear, Spongebob Squarepants, Nemo, Hello Kitty and the piggy.

These are sandwiches that were created by Funky Lunch, a site dedicated to encouraging kids to try something new and fun (and healthy!)

The other fun lunch option that is gaining wide-spread popularity are the amazing bento boxes.


“O-bento’ is what the Japanese call a packed meal, usually lunch. Bento boxes have internal dividers, and sometimes several stacked layers, so different kinds of food sit in their own little compartments. The whole thing is usually wrapped together with chopsticks in a cloth or special bag, and the goal is to make the whole package as attractive as possible – from considering the colour combinations of the food and presenting and garnishing it as neatly and artfully as you can, to co-ordinating the box, chopsticks and wrapper, and any other items like paper napkins, knife and fork or spoon, drink flask or thermos.”

  1. I love these. I especially love the caterpillar sandwich with the tomato head.

    I’ve been using cookie cutters and writing icing to make sandwiches for my girls for about four years now. They always gobble up whatever lunch is made with my magic shape makers.
