The original #BaonSerye is back!

My pre-teen Sophia is now on 5th grade. I think her level of appetite for her age, built and height is just right. I mean, standing at 5 feet tall with an effervescent personality, she literally gets hungry every hour. So now that she's back to regular school (read: homeschooled for a year, will tell the story why we quit soon), which we all welcomed with warm, excited hearts, it means this mama is back to her baon-making game again! If you're not familiar with how I make my kid's lunches, you might want to read this lovely feature about me by theAsianparent Philippines entitled, Meet the Foodie Mom Behind the Popular #baonserye

For two school years, I prepped Sophia's meals with lots of love, cute bento tools and wide array of snacks. Nothing much has changed this school year. I'm just gradually minimizing the cute factor in each baon since she doesn't really mind how her food looks lately. Again, something from her tummy sends message to her brain that cuteness can't make it full, anyway. She has days that she appreciates that her baon looks like it's straight from an Instagram feed (like today's pancake, chocolate syrup and fruit crisps combo) but generally, she's totally fine with whatever I serve her as long as it's healthy and filling. I'd like to believe that I'm a cool mom so I try my best to include fun in everything I do for my children. This was one of the major reasons why I created #baonserye in 2016.

Since then, #BaonSerye became a resource for fellow baon-making moms. I'm sure they loved my mommy stories but honestly, I knew it was the baon ideas that lured them into this cult. Truthfully, they are after lunch combinations and snack finds. So when I posted about the cookies and biscuits from Snackeroo, they all mobbed me with the same question: "Where to buy it?" I patiently answered some of them even if it's already in the caption, haha. I understand how mom brain works most of the time, you know. 

I love making baon but I can only do so much. After all, I also have a demanding toddler. Most importantly, I don't have a maid. As a mom for more than a decade already, I now have learned to be kind to myself and to do my best to maintain my sanity. How do I do that in the middle of this craziness called motherhood?  I welcome the help of anything that can make my baon-making days easier. From pre-packed frozen goods to biscuits of all sizes. So when Snackeroo sent us a box of snacks, it was as if I saw my angels smiling from the Heavens. One snack in particular that can't stop my tween from munching on was Big Boss Cracker Sandwich. She said that she likes its size and how the filling complements the crackers well. It'll soon be available in major supermarkets nationwide but if you can't find it at a grocery store near you, Shopee has them under Ritz Food. You're welcome. :)
