Crackers, ham & cheese skewers, cucumber slices, ranch dip, vanilla yogurt, brownie
Recently I bought a bunch of bento lunch box supplies: silicone baking cups, plastic picks, and plastic sauce cups. They certainly improve the presentation of the food and make it a whole lot more fun to eat! Even my kids aren't immune to the cuteness factor. Of course, garnish can be more than just for appearances: the blue sauce cups in the photo above are garnished with a cilantro leaf and orange sprinkles. Sure, it looks nice, but I also did it because I didn't want the kids dipping their cucumbers into vanilla yogurt or pouring ranch dressing onto their chocolate brownie!
