Lunch for school...

My big kids have taught me about a new craze within their school called the "bento box". This is a box that is used for lunch that is based on the way the Japanese kids eat lunch in Japan. It basically means a compartmentalized lunch with small servings and varied items to make lunches more interesting.Wanna see? It takes time and creativity to make and requires cookie cutters and lots of veggies to make it colorful!

Don't know what a bento is yet? Here is a site that has recipes and ideas.Check it out here!

Want to start a trend at your kiddos school and fill them up with nutritious fun to eat food?? Here is where we got these new Bento's!! have fun with lunch and send some love to school!!!!


  1. I have actually used a program to pack similar type lunches for my Hubby for work! It's meant for Moms to use for kids, I just modified it to feed him. They actually give you the menus to follow along with the shopping list to make buying everything easy. It works out great for portion control & variety! {If you are interested in it there is a button on the side of my blog}

  2. These look great!

    You have beautiful children and such a cute blog. I found you through the adoption group at bloggy moms. Nice to meet ya!
