Make Lunchtime Fun with a Bento Box Lunch
Bento box lunch ideas let you serve yourself and your family a fun, healthy, and tasty meal.
Bento boxes let you serve meals that are divided to separate the food. Most kids like their foods separated so nothing touches. Chances are they'll eat more when everything has its own happy place!
These bento boxes are great for taking lunch to work or school. They also keep food fresher, so lunch stays tasty and fresh!

Bite Size Portions: Bento boxes are fun because the servings are divided into neat little compartments. This is especially helpful for getting kids to eat their vegetables. By cutting carrots into small bite-size portions, kids are more likely to pop them in their mouth and eat them up.
Fun Shapes: Use cookie cutters to cut sandwiches into fun shapes. Kids will gobble up sandwiches shaped like a ninja or a graduated star.
Divide and Separate to Conquer: Use a bento box with small compartments or a plate with small bowls or cupcake liners to hold portions of food.
