In the Philippines, we celebrate Nutrition Month every July. I was not aware of it until last month. I am truly sorry if I do not know what is going on around me.
Last month was Elijah’s first Nutrition Month. He wasn’t able to join last year because we enrolled him late. His first nutrition month was a blast because he was able perform in front of the crowd and witnessed his schoolmates perform different acts like singing, dancing, acting and some even shared their nutrition month themed pick-up lines which made us all laugh. Witty kids!
In celebration of nutrition month, we were asked (parents) to bring something healthy for the kids like fruits, vegetables, cooked fish, meat, etc.. Being a mother of a picky eater who only knows Yakult and Lava Cake/Whatta Tops for his snack, I spent my whole day thinking what should I bring to school. Can you guess?
I present to you my Healthy Bento Im-bento Baon. It is composed of a peeled orange, slices of apple and banana, mixed vegetables (peas, beans, carrots), cooked rice, and cornflakes coated chicken breast.
As you can see, I have no skills in designing this bento. When God showered skills, I was asleep. So there.
Anyway, here is a sneak peak of their Nutrition Month short program.
