If you enjoy the idea of bento lunches and want to try them for your child, you will need a container to hold them. While any basic resealable container will do, there are many great choices available that are made specifically for bento lunches.
A small sample of what's available for great lunches:
My Square Meal - $9.95 - features multiple smaller compartments, perfect for a large variety of items (main feature)
LunchBots -$12.99 and up, depending on box size - stainless steel construction for those wishing to avoid plastic items.
Easy Lunchboxes - $13.95 - includes 4 sets of lids & containers, with plenty of space to hold sandwiches and other items
Pottery Barn Kids Spencer Bento Box - $14 - a larger box with 5 interior compartments for a bigger appetite
Goodbyn- $24.95 - a fun lunchbox with an included water bottle, it also comes with stickers to personalize the outside for your child
Laptop Lunches - $24.99 - the original American style bento box, features removable inner containers (some with lids) to keep items separate, carrying.
