FUN & HEALTHY BENTO BOX TIPS FOR YOU AND YOUR LITTLE ONE

Bento boxes are a fun and convenient way to pack your lunch. Whether you’re making school lunches for your kiddo or work lunches for yourself, we've put together some tips to help you pack a healthy and colorful bento:
1) MAKE IT FUN! Play with shapes and format. Use cookie cutters to cut sandwiches in different shapes. Or alternate between triangles and squares. Cut fruit and veggies into fun shapes like spirals or balls using a melon baller to shake things up.
2) SILICONE CUPS are great for sectioning off wet food away from dry foods. You can also use it to hold loose items such as nuts or berries in one place. Colorful silicone cups can brighten up the presentation of the bento. They are reusable and come in many different sizes and colors.
3) BALANCED MEAL: make sure to incorporate 4 types of food to create a healthy well-balanced bento box: carbs, protein, vegetables, and fruits!
4) USE PLAYFUL & FUN FOOD PICKS - they come in many shapes and patterns. Some are cute and perfect your kid’s lunches - they are drawn to eating food with these picks! The picks can also help keep small items together and add extra color to your bento. 
5) USE A CUTE LUNCH BAG! What better way to elevate your lunch experience than using a nice lunch bag or lunch box! Check out our variety of LUNCH BAGS for adults and  LUNCH BOXES for kids. 
6) GET YOUR KIDDIES INVOLVED! They're be more likely to eat their lunch if they help prepare it! Plus it’s an activity you can schedule in your day for quality time with your children. They'll love being a little helper!
7) ADD A SURPRISE FOR YOUR LITTLE ONE! Include a little note or sticker with your lunch, the element of surprise keeps kids engaged with lunch!
