A four-year-old girl rejects an unstoppable juggernaut of midday meals, and stays true to what she knows: rice balls
Another vegetable she usually eats, so I think the Sneaky Veg pastries will be a doozy. But oh, they’re not. “Allez, try one so you can tell me what you think.” “Beurk.” She does eat almost half a half-wrap, but with ketchup and mayo, which I suspect defeats the purpose. Familiarity – in shape and flavour – win hands down: Tsu has a whole onigiri without batting an eyelid. Carrot, spring onion, chestnut, the lot. Green Kitchen Stories make these muesli and bean cookies for breakfast. Given the fruit and maple syrup, I think they’re great for a kids’ lunchbox. Tsu and her friend Abbi don’t. Adapted from the Just Bento recipe, these are best made in the morning: if they’re to be eaten later than lunchtime, pack with an ice-pack (a frozen drink does the trick nicely).
