Bento

Bento (弁当, bentō) is a single-portion takeout or home-packed meal common in Japanese cuisine.

Bento, anyone?

Where to buy creative bento boxes and other fun stuff for the lunchbox?

Look! You can even transform a boring egg into something cute.

I love it!! These are so cute and I just adore the hard boiled egg shapers!! I am always so jealous of the moms that can take the time to do this in the morning. My kids are lucky if they get their fruit cut up instead of whole in their lunch boxes! LOL I really want to try this though! I think the kids would really love it! Not to mention, I think it'd be fun!

Those are really cute. Of course my 4th grader is too old for stuff like this now, and my little one isn't quite in school yet. I also don't do mornings, so that may be an issue. My kids are lucky I do toaster waffles or pour a bowl of cereal in the morning before 8am.

Thank you for sharing these! I'm running out of ideas for preparing Bento .
