First let me get something out of the way, a disclaimer if you will. I am very new at the art of bento lunches and I am aware that there’s a rule of thumb when it comes to portion control (3 parts carbs, 1 part protein and 2 parts fruits and vegetables). And of course, no gaps! Hopefully, I’ll be able to meet the portion control requirements as I progress. *cross fingers*
Abby’s lunch one day last week was macaroni salad, finger sandwiches and mandarin oranges. The macaroni salad is very simple: just mix together cooked elbow macaroni, shredded chicken breast, apple slices, raisins and mayo plus a dash of salt. The finger sandwiches are made with wheat bread, turkey ham, cheddar cheese and a bit of mayo.
I was pleased that Abby ate all the macaroni salad and two of the finger sandwiches. I’m afraid she didn’t touch the fruits, if she did, only a few pieces at best. At least now, she’s eating food other than siomai! Hee hee! :D
