Are you planning to throw a party for your kid’s birthday? There are countless of restaurants and fast food chains that offer children’s party packages, but nothing beats a do-it-yourself themed party!

I don’t claim to be a DIY Party Queen, but I do try my best to add a few special things every time we celebrate our minis’ birthdays. For instance, when we celebrated The Princess’ birthday party at Club Manila East, Arjay and I personalized the party by decorating the venue so that it will really look like a Hawaiian beach party. We bought leis and grass skirts for the guests, designed the venue tarpaulin and signages that led the guests to the pavilion, and ordered a Hawaiian-themed cake.

We also try our best to serve healthy meals to our guests, which are mostly kids. When we were planning for The Little Man’s first birthday party, we were so tempted to just book a party with a fastfood chain since it’s more affordable than getting a caterer. Thankfully, Max’s Restaurant offers lutong bahay-type and  fairly affordable kiddie party packages (although it is still more expensive than the ones offered by fast food chains).

With The Princess about to celebrate her third birthday party – and me getting into the Just Cook Challenge – I started to look for party food providers that offer healthy party meals that kids will enjoy. I want to veer away from fast food parties since that goes against the kind of lifestyle we have been trying to shift to since the start of the year.

Then, a few weeks ago, one of our wedding coordinators asked me if I would be willing to feature her friend’s business on the blog. She said that her friend sells bento boxes. I thought the bento boxes she offers are most likely for kids’ school baon. A lot of moms are doing this today so I figured that maybe she sells these boxes to moms who are not very creative (and patient) like me. Haha!

It was only when I finally met Kat Ishizuka personally that I understood what her new business is all about. Oh, Bento began in January 2014. Kat loves cooking and baking for her family. But like any toddler, her son is going through the picky eating phase, which pushed her to not just cook yummy and healthy meals, but also began prepare these meals creatively. Seeing that her son seems to enjoy meals with his favorite cartoon characters on the plate, the idea of selling her bento boxes was born. I super love the idea because the party bento boxes are healthy, yummy and kid-friendly – something I am looking for in party food!

Healthy, yummy, kawaii goodness in a box!

What can you expect in an Oh, Bento box?

The price of each box starts at PHP 120 – affordable, right? You have a choice between sandwich or rice with baked chicken nuggets or karaage. Each bento box comes with fruits, a dessert (Strawberry Shortcake, Red Velvet Cupcake or Chocolate Chip Muffin) and an 8oz juice pack. So for just PHP 120, you have a complete meal for your kid’s party!

    I think it’s a great way to introduce healthy snacks to children. Everyday I see the children bring store-bought chocolate cupcakes, hotdogs, and other not-so-healthy and poorly flavored food for snack time in school. It would be awesome to get them excited about eating more fruits and vegetables, and to inspire their parents or caregivers to provide such nutritious and delicious snacks.

    Q: Why do you want to celebrate your child’s birthday with Oh, Bento?
    A: because we didn’t give her a party when she turns 2 years old and even this year (lack of budget) if given a chance to be choose we’ll be so much happy. Seeing at the pictures no doubt, we probably we’ll try these very unique, healthy and cute style.. She loves all the characters too =) good luck to us all participants =)

    Recently, my son’s pedia told me and my hubby our 4yr old son, Miel, is 10lbs underweight. He is taking “pampagana” vitamins to gain weight. I think Oh, Bento is an awesome way to help convince my son to eat healthy, gain weight and at the same time have fun because of the cool characters he can see in his food. So I really want Oh, Bento for my Miel’s 5th birthday because it will not only motivate my son to eat healthy while having fun but also a way to introduce healthy and cool dishes to his friends and classmates.

    Answer to this question: Why do you want to celebrate your child’s birthday with Oh, Bento? –> My daughter is a special needs kid celebrating her 5th birthday this year. For her to reach that age is a milestone in itself so I want her birthday to be as special yet meaningful. A meal for our kiddie guests from Oh, Bento that is nutritious yet fun to eat will make it really special!

    Why do you want to celebrate your child’s birthday with Oh, Bento?
    I want to give my daughter the most unique and beautiful party she could ever dreamed of. Oh! Bento not only gives amazing food packages but as well as healthy and fresh choices for the kids. Oh! Bento breaks the common kiddie party dilemma by preparing healthy food packages instead of the usual food that we order from fast food restaurants. My daughter only deserves the best suppliers for her party, and Oh! Bento is definitely on that list.

    Why do you want to celebrate your child’s birthday with Oh, Bento? His birthday is fast approaching and I want him to experience having a party. He never did because his bday has no classes always(summer), so it would be great to surprise him with a little party.

  17. As early as now, I’m already thinking of possible themes for my kid’s 5th birthday party in school in October. I’m considering Hello Kitty since she seems to be hooked to Hello Kitty recently (on top of Frozen haha). When I saw your blog entry about Oh, Bento! it was as if I heard cherubs sing in glorious unison haha! Their Hello Kitty bento boxes would be perfect for the theme and the Daddyo would be pleased because they serve healthier food alternatives! We really don’t want to have to go through the whole fast food route again so Oh, Bento would be purrrrr..fect! Crossing my fingers and toes that we win the giveaway! :-)

She also faves Hello Kitty and Spongebob so it will be perfect for her birthday! Yey!
