Goldfish Bento for Fruity Fun

Posted by   + Show Post

I've made my family's health a BIG priority this year, and part of that is making sure my kids get plenty of fruit and vegetables every day. If you're like me and looking for a sweet snack to incorporate new tastes, try this contemplative little fish!

I've seen a few orange and mandarin fish bentos over on Pinterest, and the underwater ones are always a hit. Food artist Ida Frosk inspired this one, which I made by simply peeling a Halo and laying the segments out in the shape of a goldfish. Add a raisin eye, strawberry lips, some spinach seaweed and cauliflower bubbles to make it come to life.

Some other ways to have fun with fruit include creating a fruit petting zoo to show kids the many varieties and textures that are available. There is so much to explore beyond the traditional “apple a day.” Bust out of the breakfast banana routine and try something new!

Does your family incorporate fruit into their diet in interesting ways?

Cute, no everyone here likes fruit so we don't have to make little things.
