喜欢懒蛋蛋(Gudetama)的孩子们在午餐盒中看到摊开的鸡蛋会非常开心!Kai Sin是三个小男孩的妈妈,她在孩子们用餐时将普通的鸡蛋饼变成了孩子的开心果!鸡蛋中富含蛋白质和各种营养物质,而且鸡蛋是万能配料,可用于不同的烹饪方法。鸡蛋饼可用来装饰食物;或将鸡蛋煮熟,变成一只带海藻条的蜜蜂!

使用食物切割器可以很容易地用奶酪和海藻制作出形状。就像Lye Kuan做的那样,切割出米菲(Miffy)的形状,然后小心地放在白米饭上。

Quick Ideas on Making Healthy Lunchbox Meals for Kids

Healthy lunchbox recipes need not mean just dried fruit and biscuits.

There are quick and easy ways to create deliciously nutritious lunchboxes for children – and some of these fun bento box lunch ideas are too cute!

Let these beautifully put together lunchboxes by mums in Singapore offer some inspiration on creating appetising yet healthy meals for your kids, picky eaters or not! You might even want to get the children involved for some engaging activity together.


Cartoon-themed Inspired

Delight your kids with their favourite cartoon character in their lunchbox! This visual surprise will put smiles on their faces even before they tuck into their specially prepared homecooked meals.

Gudetama fans will be egg-cited to see these lazy eggs in that happy lunchbox! Kai Sin, mother to three young boys, turns an ordinary omelette into a delight for kids at meal times. Eggs are an excellent source of proteins and various nutrients. They are also versatile when it comes to different cooking methods. Omelettes can be used to decorate the food; or boil an egg and turn it into a bee with strips of seaweed on its body!

With food cutters, it is also easy to create an instant character with cheese and seaweed. Just like how Lye Kuan does it – a Miffy that is cut and placed carefully on top of white rice.

This mum of two knows the way to her boys’ hearts (and stomachs!), and recreates their favourite Star Wars and Snoopy in their lunchboxes too. Baked salmon, chicken patties and a garden of vegetables ensure her active boys get their daily dose of nutrients the healthier way


Lunchboxes need not be limited to just prettily-shaped rice. In fact, a little creativity with noodles can offer oodles of visual surprises too!

Is your child a fan of Totoro? You can easily switch soba with spaghetti or even bee hoon, to create your child’s favourite cartoon character. For eyes and other parts of the character, cheese and seaweed are popular choices by mums as they cut to shape easily and creates various expressions too!

Kai Sin takes pride in creating healthy lunchbox meals for her elder son, and her husband gets his own lunchbox on most weekdays too. Pretty sure he’s the envy of his colleagues! Most of her food are homemade from scratch – imagine slow braised pork or grilled saba (shown in photo) – they leave us salivating for more!

Peekaboo Veggies

Vegetables and toddlers seem to have a strange relationship.

Young children who love their veggies may suddenly decide to refuse their greens, or anything that suspiciously look different from meats. That calls for sneaky ways to hide those vegetables in their food – with our special magic wands and thinking caps, vegetables take on a fancy spin in these lunchbox meals!

Jayina believes in wholesome homemade meals for her toddler, and this homemade pumpkin mac and cheese looks like a delectable treat for her daughter. Pack it in a lunchbox, and it’s a quick meal on-the-go!

Family-friendly dishes are the best time savers. Put together a family-sized portion and pack a set for your kids to enjoy along with the adults. Mummy Chris makes eggplant look so good, we probably wouldn’t be able to tell they were hidden in there. Eggplant Tuna Bake in that lunchbox – why not?


Yummy Sandwiches and More

Sandwiches are easy to prepare, and its versatility allows fillings to be customised according to your child’s preference.

Besides the usual spreads like butter, peanut butter and jam, how about mashed avocado and eggs for that dose of colour and nutrient-rich goodness? With some creative juices, Wokkingmum makes an Egg Mayonnaise sandwich look beary yummy!


Sandwiches are easy to prepare, and makes a filling lunch for kids too. No sweat! Credits:

Besides sandwiches, pizzas make a fancy lunchbox meal for kids. To save time from making that pizza dough from scratch, simply trim off the skin of a piece of bread, roll it flat and you get an instant pizza dough! Toppings are as varied as what makes your child happy. Be inspired by mama Ming, whose too-cute-to-eat lunchbox and bento ideas are wow-ing mums all over the world!
