I’ve recently started creating bento lunch boxes for my girls and I’m having SO much fun! I’ve been a long time admirer of bento boxes and was sent a gorgeous owl lunch box from Mesh My Home along with heart shaped food cups and food picks and was inspired to start creating them.
I’d often seen these beautifully created lunch boxes and thought they looked a bit time consuming and like you needed lots of ‘stuff’ to make them, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised that don’t take much time at all, plus they make the sometimes mundane task of creating lunch boxes loads of fun! I also really love that bento boxes encourage healthy eating, something I’m really passionate about.
I don’t make bento lunch boxes every day, some days are more of a ‘pop a banana and vegemite sandwich in my bag before heading out the door’ kind of day, but I really do love creating these bento lunch boxes a few times a week as a special treat for my little loves.
If you are interested in making bento lunch boxes for your little ones, boy or girl – I would highly recommend starting with a Yum Box, they are genius and make a very clever gift too!
Happy lunch making lovelies!
