Sometimes the life of our pampered progeny incites downright jealousy.
Someone to dress and bathe us? A lovingly prepared lunch that is both nutritious and delicious?
Keep dreaming of a mom like Pam Galenkamp, who started making mini masterpieces of edible art in bento-style lunch boxes in order to get her son to eat healthier fare.
Blogging and posting pics of her adorable Cooking for Monkeys creations (along with plenty of recipes, tips, and tricks), she has moved well beyond her former mac ’n’ cheese rut (dragon fruit owl anyone?) Plus, the ecofriendly bento boxes eliminate wrapping and help parents practice portion control.
Now, is it time for our mandatory afternoon nap yet?
