Bento Style Lunch Anyone?


The first time I saw a Bento box was in the movie Breakfast Club, and then again at my old friend's house, she was Asian and this is how her mother packed her lunches. Now with Bento Style lunches being all of the rage and a really fun way to get your children to eat healthy, try new eats, as well as having a well balanced meal, this might be something you could do to liven up your child's lunch.

Love the colors although my daughters were wondering where the pink and purple colors were so maybe Sunsella and other companies will come up with some that are more geared to colors children like hint, hint.

I like how there are different size compartments so you can have food that doesn't touch. I have a daughter who doesn't like her food to touch at all and this helps with in that department. My girls also like to help plan their meals.

Our children do eat lunch through the school most days but there are days that they have field trips, do not like the options or just want to take something a little extra special from time to time. I am not really good at making the lunches really cute, being a mom with Fibromyalgia that is just a bit much to ask, but just being able to separate the food and add color to the box amps up the love of what is provided enough for my girls to gobble their lunches down.

I use silicone cupcake liners to section off bigger spots for fair like snacks. Grapes, crackers, cheese, dip, etc. There are tons of ideas online, so making a lunch that is both fun and nutritional is only a search away.
