"Kyaraben or charaben (キャラ弁 ?), a shortened form of character bento (キャラクター弁当 ,kyarakutā bentō?), is a style of elaborately arranged bento which features food decorated to look like people, characters from popular media, animals, and plants. Japanese homemakers often spend considerable time devising their children's meals including their boxed lunches.
Originally, a decorated bento was intended to arouse interest from children in their food and to encourage a wider range of eating habits. It has now evolved to the point where national contests are held, from which kyaraben artists can gain fame and become invited seminar speakers and authors on the subject." (wikipedia)
Chaim has been a picky eater since birth...add that to his periodic food strikes and his frequent vomitting and well, I get pretty desperate sometimes.
Lately this has helped...He has eaten 2 eggs each morning...as long as they are
"Eve(a) eggs"...it has been our standby breakfast all week...I think there might be somthing to this Kyaraben thing...to bad my wall-e didn't impress him much...I guess I wont be entering any contests anytime soon.
