Bento-style lunch boxes are a fab for packing nude food lunches and for fussy eaters who like to keep foods separate from each other. The lil’ compartments mean different foods stay put and the best part is most bento lunch boxes are leakproof.
The food choice options are endless – from mini sangas, to fruit and veg, or even crackers and dip, you are limited only by what your little darlings will actually eat!
