What do I do with leftover bento food scraps? Leftover food scraps never go to waste. They all get eaten. When I prepare a bento meal, I sometimes eat the fruit scraps as I go but never the bread scraps. It's my 2 little nieces ( they don't go to school yet) who eat the leftovers but I also make it fun for them to eat. I prepare them in a way they will look appetizing to their eyes. As long as there's peanutbutter or nutella everything gets eaten. But most of the time, it is my dad who eats all the scraps. lol! Poor Dad! He likes them anyway. The food scraps become his breakfast.
Here's what I do:
I only needed the yellow part of the bread
I cut the bread scraps in fun shapes or make mini peanutbutter roll ups
