Here's another creative bento box lunch idea from Rico & Coco. "The Rainbow Fish" by Marcus Pfister was the inspiration for this bento. Cut the pieces and assemble your fish on top of a bed of rice. Here are some food ideas for the colors.
White- Kameboko(Japanese fish paste cakes) or you could use sliced cheese, maybe Swiss.
Green- soy beans or peas
Pink- ginger pickles
Red- crab sticks
Blue- eggplant pickles. Blue s not an easy color to find in natural foods. You could get blue food coloring and dye some greens or lettuce leaves. Let your imagination go.
What a great idea. Your kids will be so delighted when the open the box.
