Lots of Veges and Fruit!

Since I got my Fresh in Oki delivery yesterday I decided to pack the kids obento full of fresh fruits and veges! I also made star shaped onigiri with steamed rice that I tinted with yellow food coloring and put in little quail eggs for some protein! The star onigiri is accompanied by edamame and flower shaped carrots! In the bottom tier of my daughters bento is heart shaped pear apples, fat juicy grapes, 1 quail egg and fresh Okinawa pumpkin that I seasoned with a little cinnamon and brown sugar! In the bottom tier of my sons bento is the same, minus the grapes! (He does not like them) The food picks are cute little animals that I thought would add a little more cuteness!!!
