Do You Chuboo?


By Cari Martens

Now it’s not just cheerleading moms, it’s the kindergarten moms in Japan. Moms are stepping up to the plate, literally, in the new lunch time competition. My kid’s lunch is prettier than your kid’s!

We’re talking about something called chuboos.

These products from Kai Housewares are being used by moms to create “kyara-ben” (character lunches). You can get character cutters i(bunnies, bears, hearts), molds (used in Japan to make rice into fun shapes), craft knives to turn vegetables into characters, and equipment to create faces, all in one easy kit.
