Kevin Martinez, chef de cuisine of the Tokyo Café, in Fort Worth, Texas came up with this recipe to add variety, excitement and nutrients to your children’s lunchbox menu.
“I try to put together familiar things they like,” he says of prepping lunch for his two sons, Eli, four, and Alex, two. The chef says kids like to play with their food, and anything they can pick up and eat with their little fingers, like his sticky-sweet Japanese meatballs, make for a fun lunchtime meal. – Fort Worth Star-Telegram/McClatchy-Tribune Information Services
