Mission Foods has teamed up with consultant dietitian Indra Balaratnam as well as celebrity moms, Aishah Sinclair and Sazzy Falak to share inspiring and inventive ideas for quick and healthy Bentos using their versatile Mission products such as wraps, pita, naan and chips.
Artistry is what differentiates Bento boxes from normal packed lunches.
That touch of fun and whimsy in how the food is prepared and arranged makes eating lunch all that more enjoyable and a great way to introduce new healthy food in tiny, pretty portions for children.
For example, boiled eggs are a great form of protein for children and a clever way to get them to enjoy it is to shape it like a bunny.
At the workshop held to introduce the art of bento, dietitian Indra Balaratnam, said that one of the best investments a parent can make is to create a positive relationship with food so that their children grow up to become healthy and confident.
She said with a little bit of imagination, any mom can create a cute and appetising bento incorporating healthy, seasonal items leaving out sugary snacks, and junk food.
20 lucky Malaysians were selected through contests on Mission Foods Malaysia’s Facebook as well as on Aishah Sinclair and Sazzy Falak’s Instagram to participate in the Mission Back to School Bento Workshop at The Cooking House Bangsar on the 24 th of February 2017.
