Miss Tam Chiak is in Cuisine & Wine Asia Sept/Oct 2012 issue!
Do you still remember how your school lunches look like?
For me, I walked home for lunch after school ended. During my time, we ended school at 1pm! How lucky, isn’t it? It is only when I reached Primary 5, then we started to have remedial lessons.
Then, my grandfather will bring homecooked tinggkat lunch for me. It is a very simple lunch, usually 2 dishes and plain rice. My favourite dish till now is still the Steamed egg with minced meat. Very simple dish, yet I can eat it almost everyday.
Cuisine & Wine Asia wanted to do a feature on school lunches for their Sept/Oct 2012 issue, so I created four creative and healthy bento lunch boxes for them.
School lunches have become the centre of discussion throughout the world, particularly in the UK after a strong campaign from Jamie Oliver. Personally, I feel school lunches have to be healthy yet appetising. We are facing with more and more obese kids nowadays and one of the reason is due to the unhealthy food they eat.
But kids being kids, they don’t like to have a whole plate of vegetables for their lunch. Neither do they prefer eating only fruits. It is important parents can complement palatability with nutrition.
I think schools and parents should work hand in hand to provide a healthy meal for the kids. Incoporating health eating in their cirriculum or even start a “healthy eating day” where kids share their healthy lunch boxes in school!
Now bento making is in the trend, why not start making healthy bentos for your children.
What you see in these post, are simple bento making which can be done within 15 mins! Add abit of fun into it and create your kid’s favourite toy!
