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.
Chef Donne was very engaging and the kids and mommies alike enjoyed the session. He shared personal anecdotes, thoughts and helpful tips for bento making.
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.
- Captain’s Catch Cheezy Tuna Nuggets
- Bossing Sweet Ham
We also used their sweet ham to make pretty flowers for the seascape.
We were so happy to have created this bento box!
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.
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!
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.
Baymax Bento Box
Our favorite Personal Health Care Companion is here! The mommies were intrigued with making Baymax and Chef Donne showed us the easiest way to make it. We were surprised as we thought it would be an intricate creation.
- Seaglow Squid Ball
- Seaglow Orilan (Kikiam)
Look at how cozy Baymax is. This bento box has rice, meat, egg, squid ball, kikiam, nori and fruits!
Frabelle also has sauces to accompany their frozen products.
Richwell Prime gladly sponsored toys for the kids. All the kids were extremely excited to receive this surprise. Sharing the Mega Bloks Spongebob toy set in a separate post. Watch out for that!
