Bento lunches started and thrive in Japan, and while in other parts of the world school lunches often come in sandwich form, in Japan fish is where it’s at. This bento lunch gives a nod to tradition, all in the form of a classic deli meat sandwich!
Starting with cheesy bread, make two sandwiches, one with turkey and one with ham, or with anything your kid enjoys. Use a cookie cutter to cut each one into the shape of a fish, and then spread the body portion with mayo, butter, or another sandwich spread. Use corn and carrots to create scales and peas for the eyes, and then arrange these adorable fish on a bed of lettuce. It’s quick, kid-friendly, and will make a fantastic surprise when your son or daughter opens his or her lunch box. Enjoy!
