Samantha Lee's Charaben

Food + Art = Charaben. Can anything possibly be more delightful? Kyaraben or charaben (character bento) started when artsy Japanese mothers created cute boxed lunches to encourage their picky kiddos to eat.

Enjoy these adorable creations by Samantha Lee, a SAHM of two from Malaysia. Lee started her whimsical creations to encourage her elder daughter to eat independently. Now, she has more than 280,000 followers on Instagram.
Perfect for Halloween!

Very creative indeed. But I am not sure I will be able to eat these, they look so cute and adorable.

They are gorgeous! I don't think I could ever do anything like this as I am too messy and can't seem to pay attention to detail unless it's in writing! Thanks for sharing! Who knew?

This is awesome. I wish I was as talented as this mom. Maybe I would be able to get my picky eater to eat more!
