Now that we’ve talked about different styles of bento boxes let’s chat about some add-on accessories that you might want to get to help with meals on the go!
This is how they fit in that top lidded area. They sit right on the white lid and then you place the rounded clear lid over top.
You might also want to buy a few of the elastic strap belts to keep your bentos together as they do not stick together!
Or a square bento and a tiered bento…if you are hungry or will be gone for most of the day!
And even an icepack and a tiered bento!
Oh, and to answer your questions about how to keep bentos chilled before lunch if you happen to be out and about or at school, I just throw in a small ice pack that came with my breast pump. I figure if it is good enough for my precious breast milk it is good enough for a lunch, lol!
You may want to invest in a insulated lunch box if you are packing foods that are the “chill me or I will wreak sickness on you” type just to be safe. For the most part I’ve found that they cloth and icepack do the job but I’m not bringing a leftover chicken dinner anywhere either.
So thus concludes my Bento Lunches series…was it fun? I hope it was somewhat helpful to you. If there is something I missed that you wanted further info on let me know in the comments. I can’t say I know everything on bento meals but I can give you my thoughts if you want them!
Enjoy and thanks for stopping by today!
