A mother-of-two from Singapore decided to get creative with the lunches she packs for her kids about three years ago. She has gone on to make more than 100 different creations for her two boys – 10-year-old Ivey and and 7-year-old Lucas Tey – to take the school, including bento box versions of Mario, Spider-Man, and Hello Kitty.

Ming adds, “I started packing charabens for Ivan to take to school because he had a hard time coping. He refused to go to school and cried everyday – he was not used to the longer hours and missed me. I packed him charabens with written messages to make him feel more secure. Lucas saw one of them and asked for one to take to kindergarten and he really enjoyed the attention he got from his teachers and friends. I ended up decorating either their lunch or dinner instead and they eat those at home. They still enjoy looking at what I make and will give comments at times on how I can position certain parts. They are excited when I make characters they like or request.”
