Bento boxes! What, why,& where

bento

Several friends have asked me for more info on the Bento boxes.
I love food and I love being creative with food.
This has been a HUGE hit at our house with eating healthier, saving money, and having fun!
And who doesn’t want to eat healthier, save money, or have fun???
  •  We have drastically decreased the # of fast food drive-thru trips!
  • Tex has started taking a lunch instead of eating out
  • Kids are eating more fruit and veggies
  • Finally able to stop buying white bread.
  • I have 1 child that had a really hard time letting go of the white bread,since the Bento not a word about the wheat bread!
  • It’s like unwrapping a gift everyday, just ask my kids
For the boxes:
Goodbyn Lunchbox, Red/Orange:
This box is big and with lots of room.
If you have small kids I would go with a smaller box. My kids loved decorating these with the stickers that comes with it.
 
EasyLunchBoxes:
Much better quality than the disposable ones you can buy at the store.
Easy to store and a great size for kids and adults

Lunchbots

Several different sizes are available.
I love this box! Very compact, food fits nice and snug.
Not microwave safeThey sell the Fit & Fresh one at Target (pic below)
  It does take time and some days I can spend 30 minutes putting together 6 lunches.
MOST days it takes 15 minutes, depending on how creative I want to be. For my family to enjoy eating healthier foods, I will gladly spend those extra minutes playing with my food ;-)PART 2 What you will need
