Benefits of Using Bento Boxes for School Lunches:
Made for Fussy Eaters
Our bento boxes are a lifesaver for fussy eaters who prefer their food not to touch. With separate compartments and clever dividers, each snack can be enjoyed individually, to ensure no meltdowns over food mixing!
These compartments also make it easier to control portion sizes. This is especially important when it comes to balancing the intake of different food groups. By having separate compartments for proteins, grains, fruits, and veggies, you can ensure that your child gets a balanced meal, without the risk of overeating or feeling hungry throughout the day. Pack their favourite fruits, veggies, and bite-sized sandwiches in each compartment to create a mini buffet.
Eco-friendly lunch containers
One of the best aspects of bento boxes is their ability to minimise waste. Unlike ordinary lunch containers which require the use of multiple plastic bags and glad wrap to keep food separate and fresh, bento boxes lunch containers utilise no single use plastic. Within our bento box bundle for kids, the reusable and machine-washable dividers and containers remove the need for disposable packaging, while keeping all foods fresh.
Healthy School Lunch Ideas Using Bento Boxes
Bento boxes are the secret weapon for crafting well-balanced meals that kids will love. With their divided compartments, you can easily pack a variety of nutritious foods, from fresh fruits and veggies to proteins and whole grains. Think colourful and vibrant: carrot sticks, sliced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, mini sandwiches, cheese sticks, and more! Get creative and let your imagination run wild while ensuring your child gets the nutrients they need.
Here are some cute and tasty ideas to get you started:
Create easy animal-themed lunches to get your little one excited about their healthy lunch. Turn a sandwich into a friendly dinosaur using sandwich cutters, even use cucumber slices as bunny ears, and add eyes made from blueberries. Your child will be thrilled to discover their lunchtime safari!
Mini Food Fiesta
Miniature versions of favourite foods always make mealtime more exciting. Think mini pizzas, bite-sized quesadillas, or even tiny sushi rolls. Miniaturise their favourites and watch your little ones' eyes light up!
Add a burst of colour to their lunch box with a rainbow of fruits. Slice strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, and oranges into bite-sized pieces. Arrange them in the compartments for a fruity feast that's as beautiful as it is delicious.
