Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ideas for fresh lunches and snacks Title: Little Bento - 32 Irresistible Bento Boxes for Kids Author: Michelle Olivier Publisher: Callisto Publishing & Sonoma Press Published: 8-9-2016 Pages: 178 Genre: Cooking, Food & Wine Sub-Genre: Cookbooks, Bento Box Meals, Cooking with Kids, Quick & Easy, Special Diet, Cooking for Kids, ISBN: 978194351289 ASIN: B01I2APYCI Reviewed For Callisto Publishing & Sonoma Press Reviewer: DelAnne Rating: 4.75 Stars When their parents are traveling for their work and the youngster come to stay with me its always the same whether it is one week or six, the school lunches are terrible, can't I take my lunch. Unfortunately, that usually means cold left overs or some kind of sandwich. For Christmas last year I got a great deal on some bento boxes at a close out and gave them as Christmas gift. Now when they come they bring their boxes with them. I have often come up blank when trying to figure out what to put in them. Summers are no problem because they are strictly snacks, fresh fruit and vegetables, granola bars, etc. and a frozen drink. School time is another matter. Little Bento give me some creative ideas and the kids can help prepare them the night before so they know what they are getting and it is something they will like. They may still get a cold chicken thigh or leg but the rest can be individualized to suit the child. If you child has special dietary needs it makes them feel like they fit in more when they take their own meals and not have to interrogate the kitchen staff about ingredients or how a meal is prepared. I know that can be embarrassing because I had to do that when I was in school over food allergies. Simple easy to follow instructions on how to use the boxes and what kind and size are discussed. Perfect for beginners or long time users both. My rating of "Little Bento - 32 Irresistible Bento Boxes for Kids" is 4.75 out of 5 stars.
