When food looks good we are normally more likely to eat it.  A steak with grilled onions might not look very appealing to a child… but ANIMAL SHAPED crackers, cheese, fruit, rice and sandwiches will do the trick. Finger food that is both fun and easy to make, when you use this Hello Kitty Rice Mold.  Even picky eaters are excited to try new foods when they are in different shapes. The above meal was made rather fast, and fits perfect into a Bento box.

Be creative and see what you can create, here is how the above lunch combo was made.

You will need

  • cupcake holders silicone or paper
  • 2 sliced apples
  • ½ cup of cooked rice
  • 3 black olive for eyes
  • Hello Kitty Rice Mold found on amazon 
  • 10 pretzel sticks
  • 1 slice of cheese
  • 1 slice of lunch meat rolled up
  • 3 grape tomato
  • 3 drops of black icing

1. Fill the mold with rice and press down to make the hello kitty rice. Cut three tiny pieces of your olive for the eyes. Slice a piece of the grape tomato and cut the slice in half for the sides of the bow. Cut another small slice for the center of the bow. Place on your rice and put in the cupcake holder.

2.With the bunny cutter cut your cheese in the shape of a bunny. Place pretzel stick in a cupcake holder with your cut out cheese on top.

3. With your bear cookie cutter cut your apple slices into a bear shape and use black icing for the eyes. Place in a separate cupcake holder.

4. Place left over veggies in another cupcake holder.

5.  Place all in a small lunch box.
