Helloooo from Canada!

Hi everyone! I'm completely new to the world of bento - I'm doing it out of desperation as my 5 and 3 yr olds are SO PICKY!!! The 5 yr old (both girls) will be starting grade 1 in September, her first full day schooling (kindy is only 1/2 day here). She will be left to her own devices for lunch, so this is more of added insurance that she'll eat properly.

As I say in my (new, only 2 posts) blog, they come by the bento world honestly - they're hapa, or half Japanese (although some would argue that I'm more Japanese than their Canadian-born Japanese dad).

So...anyhoo...I just went on a Daiso/dollar store/Michael's shopping spree and have bags of still-packaged bento gear.

Looking forward to jumping in!

Re: Helloooo from Canada!

Hi, nice to meet you. I know exactly what you mean about picky - my son just used to bring his school lunches back home with him. I wish I'd known about bentos then - but that was a loooong time ago, before the interwebs made exchange of ideas so easy.
