Bento Box Lunches make lunch fun and easy to prepare for those picky eaters. My daughter was the worst school lunch eater and would actually go all day at school without eating because she didn’t like the school lunches.
Bento Box School Lunches for picky eaters
Then I found Bento Boxes and I no longer had to worry if my daughter was eating her lunch. We picked out her favorite lunch items and packed her bento box with foods I knew she would eat.
Her favorites are berries and cheese. The separate compartments of the bento box protected the delicate berries like her favorite raspberries.
It also kept her food from touching. If the bread from a sandwich touched the fruit she wouldn’t eat it. Most of the time she wouldn’t even eat a sandwich even when it was packed into a bento box.
She didn’t like how warm the bread got from sitting in her lunch box at school until lunchtime. I finally just started packing her bento box with meat and cheese rolls. Bento Box lunches were the only way I could be sure she would eat her lunch.
