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?

I make cute things with fruit for my 4 year old, or I will put some in a green smoothie.

And to answer the question, no, I don't really need to hide things in her food

No, we usually just eat it or make smoothies out of it.

Very cute. My kids love fruit. Pretty much any fruit I buy is gone within days.
