Back-to-School Bento Box Lunch Ideas

Bento Box Lunch Ideas


Are you searching for new ways to make your child’s school lunches healthier and fun for this upcoming school year? Look no further! These Back-to-School Bento Box Lunches Ideas are bound to have your kids only asking to have one every day once they’ve had a taste of these during lunchtime! But what is a Bento Box? The word Bento (弁当 bentō) signifies “convenient”, as it is indeed a convenient single portion on-the-go style, or even a home meal, originating from traditional Japanese cuisine. Bento Boxes usually consist of meat and/or fish, regular white rice, and pickled or cooked vegetables packed into any box-sized container. Bento Boxes can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, and can nowadays even be found as a ready-to-go meal in some supermarkets or convenience stores.

What makes Bento Boxes so special, however, is that Japanese homemakers can often be found dedicating precious time and energy to carefully prepare and ornately decorate the boxes to make the meals much more special for their spouse, children, or even themselves. Meals can even be intricately designed to look like animals, people, buildings, or even monuments! Honestly, what kid wouldn’t get excited at the mere thought of eating a sandwich shaped like a fish or a cute bear at school? 

Whilst Bento Boxes can be time-consuming to prepare, the effort will have been well worth it once your child comes home from school well-fed with an empty lunch box! Spruce up your child’s lunches in a healthy way this school year with the use of Bento Boxes!
