These simple beginner bento lunch ideas make cute lunchbox food for kids, and they’re great for encouraging picky eaters to try new foods!
If you’ve ever browsed Pinterest during back-to-school season, chances are rather good that you’ve seen some elaborate and intricate bento lunch boxes like these:
I’m SO impressed with the level of skill and talent that these lunchbox artists possess! I love the look of these super adorable bento boxes, but let’s be real, I don’t have time to create intricate masterpieces for my little ones each day (and I’m fairly certain that at least 90% of the other parents out there don’t have that kind of spare time either!). Luckily for us, there are TONS of cute bento lunchbox ideas that only take a few minutes to create! I’ve rounded up 35 of my favorites – more than enough to get us through an entire month’s worth of lunches!
Quick note: not all of these cute lunch box ideas are shown inside of an actual bento box, but they could all be used for that purpose!
