Snax Box #044 Flower Shaped Sweet Potato

 I bought some sweet potato last week from the market and totally forgotten about it until yesterday.  I was lucky as both lil prince and princess slept early and I have some of what we always called "ME" time to do some housework and usually I will use this 'precious' time to prepare my lil prince snack box.  I steamed the sweet potato, cut them into flower shaped (see photo) and use the 'hole cutters' (not sure what it's called) and make a tiny hole in the middle.

My lil prince wanted to bring mayonnaise to school today, so I boiled some baby carrots for him and added a cup of sweet corn.

The other side dishes are flower shaped watermelon, strawberries, grapes and not forgetting his reward for the day which was some tiny so called 'M&Ms' chocolates.  After assembling all the items into his snack box, I realized that this should be called a vegetarian snack box ^__^!


  1. Fruit and veggie are healthy and full of vitamins. I love this lunch box.

  2. Sheoh Yan,

  6. @Health Freak Mommy,
    Thank you for your compliments! I just thought of cutting them into flower shape to make it attractive.
