Bento boxes are a fun way to pack and serve your child's lunch. Here are some reasons to go bento!
- Bento boxes help make sense of portion control. It helps kids learn the appropriate portion sizes – not the super-size-me restaurant portions.
- They allow you to cook large batches and store them as small portions in the fridge or freezer. This makes it easy to mix and match components.
- Bento boxes promote predominately fresh foods. Having a pre-fab container to use will keep you motivated to fill it with healthy options, while preventing overload, and keep a more discerning eye on exactly what makes the cut.
- They're full of variety and creativity. Bento boxes often contain a variety of foods in vibrant colors and textures, which may make you more inclined to add that extra red pepper or carrot to your child’s lunch in the name of beauty.
