How to Make a Flower Bento Lunch Box

Here’s how to make an easy flower bento lunch box using a sandwich, ham flower and veggies

This bento box packs tons of flower power. See our step-by-step photo guide to making the jelly flower in the center (use your kid's favorite flavor).

Antichoking warning: Remember to remove toothpicks and cut up blueberries, grapes, carrots and other food for children under 4. See our Antichoking guide for more information.

Serving the flower bento on a bed of lettuce makes it feel even more like a garden.

Tuck in a ham flower (here's a photo guide on how to make it) and a few green string beans for added color and nutrients.

Cut "V" shapes into cucumber and carrot discs to make the bright orange flowers.

Use a small, scallop-edged cookie cutter to make the fun floral fruit decorations—this is fun to do with your kid if she's old enough. You can use this for the cheese in the center of the sandwich, too.
