Polar bear teriyaki chicken bento

Making my girls eat spicy food is a bit tricky. I am trying to introduce stronger tastes to them, experimenting little by little to see how it goes.

I made this teriyaki chicken for hubs ( Mr mies ) and I thought it was a good idea to offer the same for the girls.  I was tempted to omit the grated ginger from the marinade but I bravely carried on with the normal recipe :).

Surprise, surprise! They ate everything ( mostly because they liked the bamboo skewer ) ^_^.

Contents of the boxes: Zakkokumai (rice with mixed grains), furikake, chicken teriyaki skewer,  mini corns, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and fruit salad.  Polar bear made with rice, nori and steamed cauliflower “ears”.

Slightly different content: zakkokumai, toasted black sesame seeds, chicken teriyaki skewers, cherry tomato, mini corns, cucumber, beni shōga, homemade chinese cabbage pickles ( hakusai tsukemono) and steamed cauliflower with miso dressing ( my summer favorite! )
