Bento lunch box ideas

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.
