Frabelle Foods Bento Box Workshop with Mommy Bloggers Philippines

Posted on

Mommy Bloggers Philippines teamed up with Frabelle Foods to have a special bento box workshop for mommy bloggers. This was an event I was really looking forward to and excited for. For sure, you’re familiar with this brand with their tasty frozen seafood and Christmas hams.

This workshop featured a few of their premium products which I was surprised we were able to make into the cutest bento creations.

Frabelle comes from the names of the founders,  Francisco and Bella = Frabelle. Frabelle Foods includes many kinds of products from frozen seafood, balls, battered, breaded, fried, sauces, hotdogs, longganiza, tocino, bacon, sliced hams, tapa, to their famous Christmas hams.

Jael was also looking forward to our activity. I told him about bento and what we were going to do. He was excited to create and as I would later find out eat the ingredients! Look at the concentration!

Seascape Bento Box

Our first bento box creation featured Frabellle Foods Captain’s Catch Cheesy Nuggets. We have been buying Frabelle’s Captain’s Catch Fish Nuggets for Jael. It’s one of his favorite foods and before we discovered their fish nuggets we were feeding him another brand (chicken nuggets). For 2 weeks straight he ate chicken nuggets for lunch and gained weight that bothered me. I realized the chicken nuggets I was feeding him was not healthy.

Since nuggets are his favorite I searched for an alternative and that’s when I found Frabelle’s fish nuggets! A healthier alternative and one that I can feed Jael with peace of mind.

Featured products:

  • Captain’s Catch Cheezy Tuna Nuggets
  • Bossing Sweet Ham

Lady Bug in Paradise Bento Box

When Chef Donne said we were making ladybugs I had to wonder how that would turn out and it turned out perfectly if I do say so myself.

Featured product:

  • Bossing Burger

Chef Donne shared some tips for bento making. Instead of using toothpicks you can use uncooked spaghetti to prevent kids from getting hurt. To stick the food together like the eyes and other pieces mayo is a good option.

Piggy in a Bun Bento Box

Kids will enjoy this bento creation as they’ll see a piggy when they open their lunch box!

Featured product:

  • Premium hotdogs

Lettuce is a great way to fill the box and give it color and life. It can also be a padding for the other food pieces.

We just recently got a convection oven so I was looking forward to learning how to make Strawberries and Cream and Peanut Butter and Choco Chip cupcakes.
