I started packing charabens (decorative bentos) when my first-born entered elementary school. He missed me terribly then and had problems adjusting to the longer hours at primary school. I started packing him charabens, along with lunch notes, hoping to cheer him up and let him have something to look forward to at recess. Overtime, making cute food for my boys have become a hobby for me, which I indulge in whenever I'm free.

I just published my bento book last year, I hope it will be useful in helping parents who want to pack charabens for their kids, but have no idea where to start. I also share my creations both on my blog and my Instagram account.

I think these are awesome and you're doing a great job, such a creative mum...I would have never thought of this. And don't allow anyone to discourage there is always 1 that will throw in something negative. I see you enjoy what you are doing so KEEP GOING
