Instead of packing one lunch box with two or three smaller containers, Bento boxes allow you to pack everything your child needs for lunch in one box. Aside from convenience, it is also great for moms who love getting creative with their school lunch meals. But most importantly, they help ensure your child gets a well-rounded meal.
A ‘Bento’ box looks similar to your standard lunch box, except they come with built in or pull-out dividers. This helps you pack different foods in one box, without worrying about it all getting mixed up.
Bento lunch boxes can help encourage parents to pack healthier lunches. Some come with sections that are labelled protein, dairy, grains, fruit, veggies, and snack. This will help ensure your kids get a well-balanced meal. This means more textures, colours, and food groups in one lunch box.
