Back to School is here and so are these awesome Bento Box Ideas for Kids — Grab your supplies and get packing!
Bento boxes are a fun way to pack your kid’s lunch for school. You get to stretch a bit of your own creative muscle, as much or as little as you’d like, while providing your child a nutritious and delicious meal. It’s really impressive to see just how elaborate parents can get into a bento box theme. You can cut your food into shapes with cookie cutters, add picks of different characters, and even pack utensils that fit with the presentation. Some bento boxes are practically works of art!
If you have an eater that can be a little fussy, packing bentos for lunch might actually help. It makes lunch exciting, never knowing what cool and colorful theme or character is in store for them. They’ll be engaged and excited to eat up all their goodies!
For the back to school season, I came up a list of 20 of the most creative bento boxes to help inspire your child’s lunch—whether you have a toddler or a tween, you can make lunchtime special with these fun bento box ideas for kids.
