Do you Bento?

I like the idea of Bentos but it seems like a lot of work, and I'm not quite sure how to go about it. I did it once, and my kid seemed fine with it...but I don't know how to 'broaden' the food horizons and keep it 'in the box' (haha). 


Is it possible to bento on Sunday for the whole M-F week? Cause that would SURE help my week out!!

When I made it I did, rolls of lunch meat, carrots, cheese cubes and grapes.

Google is your friend :P

They are healthy meals that are served in little containers. I saw a blog on it once. here's another blog about it: http://lunchinabox.net/category/post-type/for-kids/

I dont really get what the diff is between bento and a regular boxed lunch. Its just a healthy meal packed all in one dish??...REALLY not trying to be rude tho. Im on mobil so I cant see much
