Make School Lunch Fun
No more smushed sandwiches! Bento boxes are popping up all over the web and we know why. This Japanese lunch tradition is all the rage because it puts the fun back into packing lunches. Little compartments make it easy to get creative and pack things that might otherwise get overlooked in a traditional sack lunch.
Say goodbye to boring lunches
Are you tired of packing the same old peanut butter and jelly sandwich every day? Your kids probably are too! Bento boxes open up a world of possibility. The small compartments make it easy to pack a variety of fresh, healthy foods like fruits, veggies, nuts, eggs, cheese, meats, pasta and more. The best part?
