Creative mom Heather Sitarzewski decided last year she would add some fun to her son’s bento-style lunches with art. Many of the lunches are made to look like popular cartoon characters we all know and love, and they have all been beautifully documented on her website Lunchbox Awesome. First spotted on Boing Boing, Heather told them:
I decided this past summer that I wanted to make a fun bento every day for my son’s lunches this school year. I dug around online for a bit to see ideas and found some very fun sites that have recipes and tutorials for how to manipulate food into shapes and patterns that you don’t envision initially when you think about it.
Day one I put together a cute, generic style bento. I knew immediately that I wanted to do Disney characters and other fun imagery. But little did I know, that crazy idea I had during the summer would be received so warmly with my Facebook friends. [Source: Boing Boing]
