Are you wondering what lunch boxes are best for bento, which foods to pack in a bento box and how to get started packing lunches? You’ve come to the right place!
I’ve been packing bento lunches daily for my son for nearly 5 years now and I’ve learnt a trick or two along the way! Over the next few months I’ll be sharing everything I know about packing bento lunches and I hope to build this page up as a useful resource for anyone who wants to pack lunches for their children or for themselves.
