How do you get your toddler to try new foods? That was the question that inspired Cooking for Monkeys pursuit of the bento box and her fun blog. Frankly, I'm in awe (with a dash of envy) of her food creativity and know that my children would be beside themselves if they were served a Wild Thing monster or a polar bear sandwich in their lunch (Annie's mac 'n cheese bunny pasta is no longer making the cut). Not always is she carving animals out of cheese but will often put together a beautifully presented bento box combining a variety of flavors, colors and textures that's just as appetizing. Very inspiring for those of us who have found ourselves in a food rut. I think it's worth a try.
