Yummy Big Baon Blowout

We’re on the second week since school has started. My kids and I are getting better at rising up early. Albeit there was one day last week when I missed my alarm and woke up so late! That’s a disaster! So I have to make it up this week and challenge myself for a “no-late” week! Let’s see how far can I go! 🙂

Two weeks before school opened up, Yummy has again, thought of another fun event not just for the foodies, but also for the mommies and kids!

Yummy made a great job at timing the Yummy Big Baon Blowout event before school starts. “Yummy Big Baon Baon Blowout is a great opportunity for everyone to try food that they can take to school or even to work. This event is actually not only for students but we timed it before school starts” says Rach of Yummy Magazine.

The first-ever Big Baon Blowout was held on May 23, 2015 at the Trinoma Activity Center in QC., where 30 Yummy-approved concessionaires together with invited food experts and guest chefs turned a mundane Saturday into a delightful whole-day food affair!

Guest Chefs including Yummy Magazine team’s Erickson John Mendiola, Asst. Managing Editor, Katrina Luisa Gonzales, Asst. Style Editor, and Ma. Rachelle Santos, Food Director. Smart Parenting contributing writer, Michelle Aventejado, and Good Housekeeping Food Editor, Roselle Miranda, also whipped up a few recipes for the participants.

Bento Mommas along with Aqiva co-presented a very fruitful bento tutorial for Mommies! Have you heard of Bento btw? Bento is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine. A traditional bento holds rice, fish or meat, with pickled or cooked vegetables, usually in a box-shaped container. It can be elaborately arranged in a style called “kyaraben” (“character bento”), “oekakiben” or “picture bento”. This is decorated to look like people, animals, buildings and monuments, or items such as flowers and plants. (Wiki)

As I watched the Bento Mommas squeezed out their creative juices in making delightful bento meals, I couldn’t wait to go home and try the recipes myself! I even developed this sudden liking for bento! Immediately the day after, I rushed to the nearby Supermarket and bought my kids bento boxes! 🙂

Thank you Yummy Big Baon Blowout! I find your tutorials and baon tips useful. Raising my two picky eaters is not easy! Given that their food is delicious doesn’t give me the guarantee that they will consume them too. Food shouldn’t just be pleasing to the palate but to the eyes of the eater as well.

If you missed the  Yummy Big Baon Blowout event, don’t worry! Yummy thought of holding it religiously every year to help out all the Mommies and promote healthy and fun eating to kids and families!
