If your kid isn’t keen on a full-sized lunch at school, they may prefer the Japanese style Bento lunches instead. Bento lunches consist of a number of bite-sized pieces of food, in a lunch box with divided sections. This can be a better option for kids that don’t like to sit still for long or get bored eating the same thing over and over again.
This post is in collaboration with Woolworths
There are a number of different foods you can use to create a bento box that your kids will love. Here are some of our favourite trialled and tested ideas:
Protein and Dairy
Eggs (great for gluten-free kids)
Ham and cheese wrap on Woolworths wholegrain wraps
Cheese and salad wrap on Woolworths wholegrain wraps
Chia strawberry jam on wholegrain bread
Grains and snacks
Woolworths Original Gluten Free Popcorn (in lightly salted or sweet and salty)
Woolworths hundreds and thousands white choc minis (or choc chip)
Gluten Free snack ideas
Free From Gluten Chocolate Mini Smiles (or vanilla)
If you mix and match something from each section, you’ll have a well-balanced lunch box that your kids will love!
