I must admit that summer isn't much lunch packing since the kids aren't quite keen on eating bento at home. Plus dad is quite amused whenever I serve meals on bento boxes. What else for hubby? These men in my life think I'm nuts. So, I try to serve it for my kids as snacks instead, when we're home, since they enjoy bento foods even better.
Today's breakfast was inspired by Mc Donalds' Happy Meals &
Lunchables Chicken Nuggets Meal.
I have prepared home-made chicken nuggets, courtesy of Momables, BBQ sauce and fruits as sides. Ms A had a starfish pick on apple slices, while Mr G had an Octopus pick on watermelon cubes.
I must admit my kids could tell a healthier meal from not. And they devoured this like lightning flash. It was even compared to Lunchables' nugget meals. And this was a sure winner and have added it as one of our Fall menus.
I have to thank Momables for the Nuggets Recipe, which is very easy to make,
and takes about less than 10 minutes to prepare & pack after it has been baked.
If you're looking for the recipe, check it out here.
Also, this might be a good time to take advantage of their dinners and lunches,
specially planned for you on a weekly basis if you subscribe over at MOMables
