One of the quickest and easiest way to dress up a Bento lunch is by making a Ham Flowers (or Ham Blossoms) and the best thing about it, is that you don’t need any special tools!

Ingredients:
Ham

Instructions:
Fold ham in half.
Make small inserts along the folded edge almost halfway with a knife (or scissors if you can find them – which I couldn’t at the time I did this!) not too deep or the ‘Petals’ will go droopy!!
Roll ham from one end to the other tightly.
Trim the bottom if you want it to stand nicely.

Watch as your child discovers something new on their plate!

    Yvette, this is so simple yet clever! I wish your blog was around when my boys were younger; they would have loved your ideas.

    I’m curious though, what do you do with all the offcuts? I imagine, if it were me they’d be going ‘in ma belleh!’

      Yum Yums in my Tum Tum!! The offcuts use to go on my son’s plate when he was a baby learning to eat (baby led feeding way)

      Now he demands his own bento plate – I get the offcuts for my lunch – (or freeze the bread crusts for croutons or garlic toast!)
