Baby Bento - Sweet Potato Men

We'll be eating at home again, as usual, but I recently came across some holiday themed mini cookie cutters and can't resist the urge to make cute little food shapes for Senorcito. They are just the perfect size for him right now. The boy loves just about every vegetable on this planet with the exception of broccoli. He just doesn't care for the texture. Every once in awhile I put some on his plate and he will try it ... It just doesn't stay in his mouth for long. Tomorrow, we are trying the dreaded veggie once again. Maybe one of these days, he'll eat it.

This bento contains two meals and one snack for my 18month old son ...
  • Breakfast - Banana Rice Pancakes, Red & Green Apple sticks
  • Lunch - Stacks of Sweet Potato Men (scraps under chicken), Broccoli, Roasted Chicken, Banana and Blueberries
  • Snack - Clementine and Rice Chex Cereal

ETA - Senorcito ate all of his broccoli! The trick was using a fork. He refused to touch it with his hands, but happily consumed the veggie pre-stabbed.
