Stuff We Love - Bento Boxes!!

I absolutely ADORE bento boxes. At the very top of my list of must haves for my little guy when he starts Junior Kindergarden this year was a bento box he could call his very own. I'm happy to say I placed an order tonight for an absolutely adorable Thomas the Tank Engine 2 tiered bento and I cannot wait to start packing him little healthy lunches for school. There are lots of kid friendly bento box choices on ebay with almost every character and theme imaginable but there are also some fabulous options for us grown folks as well. A bento box is great for portion control and a welcome change from the same old brown bag sandwich lunch you may have been bringing with you to work each day.

Here are some of my own personal favorite bento box picks -
1. The Laptop Lunch Bento Box Set in Pink, US$22.99, available at laptoplunches.com2. Parisian Themed Bento Box, US$17.99, available at sugarcharms3. Plastica Little Bento Box, US$24, available at plastica

Love these but kind of stumped on the types of foods you would prepare each day?? There are plenty of cookbooks available today for the bento box loving crowd. Here are just a couple -
1. 500 Bento Box Lunches by Korero Books, $16.02, available at amazon.ca

2. Vegan Lunch Box: 130 Amazing, Animal-Free Lunches Kids and Grown-Ups will Love! by Jennifer McCann, $15.33, available at amazon.ca
