Simple donut bento for kids

A very quick update. I made an extremely simple donut bento for Ethan today. His snack break time is only 10 minutes so he has very limited time to eat. That’s also the reason why his lunch box is very simple with minimal food in it.

Bread donut bento

1) Spread peanut butter/chocolate or any spread of your choice on a piece of bread.

2) Place another piece of bread on it. 

3) Use a donut cutter to cut the bread.

4) Spread condensed milk on the top layer of the donut and sprinkle some colored sugar rice. 

Quick and simple but guess what? It doesn’t taste a little bit like DONUT at all! :P

    I’d rather have fried rice, noodles, mihun…stuff like that instead. So little, not enough lah…

    10 mins, not enough time to eat. I usually let him eat complete breakfast before going to school. This is just his snack :)

    I also made this before. My kids love it. Not too sweet as compared to the Big Apple donuts :). Hmmm…probably I should make this again.

    Looks nice..but personally I do not like donuts due to their extreme sweetness. I would go for fruits instead which is much more healthy for a snack.

    Wow, this is simple and nice. You are very good in making bentos now. I didn’t prepare any bento for my son, cos the kindergarten is provided him with RM20/mth.

    Maybe next year when he is Std 1, i might be preparing this for him.

    Wow here we have to pay RM180 half yearly but I did not as I’m not too confident on the hygiene and quality of canteen food

    Works fine for kids but it will be a little bit too sweet for weight-watchers like us :(
