One of the quickest and easiest way to dress up a Bento lunch is by making a Ham Flowers (or Ham Blossoms) and the best thing about it, is that you don’t need any special tools!


Fold ham in half.
Make small inserts along the folded edge almost halfway with a knife (or scissors if you can find them – which I couldn’t at the time I did this!) not too deep or the ‘Petals’ will go droopy!!
Roll ham from one end to the other tightly.
Trim the bottom if you want it to stand nicely.


Watch as your child discovers something new on their plate!
