Bento lunch boxes - Why do you need one?

by Customer Service

Bento lunch boxes are popular for a long list of reasons, including their convenience, versatility, and ability to promote healthy eating habits.

Here are just a few reasons why we think bento lunch boxes are AMAZING:

  1. Kid-Friendly: Bento boxes are great for kids, as they can make mealtime more fun and exciting. The different compartments allow for a variety of colourful and healthy foods to be included with ease. This can encourage children to try new foods and develop healthy eating habits from a young age.

  2. Portion Control: Bento boxes come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but regardless of size, they are compartmentalized, which can help with portion control. This is especially beneficial for those who are trying to manage their weight or maintain a healthy diet. We've had many customers find us after having bariatric surgery and we hear how great these are for that situation!

  3. Easy to Pack: Bento boxes are easy to pack and carry around, making them perfect for on-the-go meals. They also come in a variety of materials, including plastics, silicone, and stainless steel, which allows for flexibility in terms of what you can pack, how you store it and care for it.

  4. Versatility: Bento boxes are versatile and can be used for a variety of foods, from sandwiches and salads to snacks and desserts. The different compartments also allow for different foods to be separated, preventing them from mixing or becoming soggy.

  5. Environmentally Friendly: Our bento boxes are reusable and made to last! Many are made from recycled plastics, bamboo or plant composites or silicone which can reduce waste and promote sustainable living.
