Bento Box Lunches

Bento Boxes are the newest lunch craze for kids.  While they are new for us here in the US, they have been used in Japanese culture for years.  They are traditionally home packed meals for convenience consisting of rice, pickled veggies, and fish or meats.

Today many Bento Boxes are made to show love by mothers for their children in fun themed shapes.   In the Western world, I find our US style Bentos consist of fun sandwiches, fresh fruits and veggies, and cheeses.
