going bonkers for kids bento box!

The kookie girls and our mini kookies, all love to go out for Japanese and we are smitten with this Japanese style lunchbox! What a great way to serve up healthy and fun lunches that don't require bread and boring old lunchmeat! A Bentō is a single sized portion or a home-packed meal that is common in Japan. The traditional bento box contains rice, chicken, meat or fish and usually a side dish of cooked or pickled vegetables. Japanese households take great time and care in packing their bento boxes to make them appealing. This funky lunchbox is available to buy at Cooking for Monkeys for $18.
