Bento boxes are the new brown bags. These Japanese-inspired lunchboxes are perfect for separating snacks from sandwiches and sauces or leftovers, and whatever else you want to pack in your kids’ lunches. Here three more ideas for making your kids’ lunch the coolest one on the playground:
Cookie cutters are your new best friend. Pick out some cool ones with your kids, and use them on everything from bread to tortillas (Micky Mouse shaped quesadillas!), cheese slices, fruit roll ups, cucumber slices to duh, cookies.
Compartmentalize. Since you’re already obsessed with bento boxes, go even further and and use cupcake wrappers to separate snacks within each compartment of your bento box. These kid-friendly snack markers are great for spearing pieces of fruit or other bite sized snacks.
Color is King. The more colorful your bento box, the healthier and more appealing to the eye…and the belly! Be sure to include lots of seasonal fruits and veggies, along with the more savory lunch components, like hummus, wraps, or lunchable-style sandwich makings.
