# 1 Breakfast bento

What is Bento? 
Extracted from Lia Chen's bentolicious blog- "Bento or also known as obento is originated from Japan.  Basically, bento is home packed lunch or lunch box. but like a lot of Japanese things, bentos are more artistic and aesthetically pleasing than typical American brown bags.  Bentos are becoming popular in many countries now. Many people talk about whether bento is an art or just lunch in a box?  For me, bento is a food art from tastes, textures and nutrition.  Preparing bento is fun; and food preparation has becoming more and more creative simply due to food choices and fun tools"
This is my very first bento, a simple breakfast for my 2 darling for Chinese New Year.  Front: Love shape wholemeal bread with peanut butter, cornflakes and love shape apples.  Back: Star shape wholemeal bread with cheese, cornflakes, oranges.  My 6 years old daughter love peanut butter and cheese whereas my little son love fruits the most :)  I enjoy looking at him eating fruits ...strawberries his favourite! grapes, bananas, papayas, oranges, watermelon, apples....
