Coming up with new, creative lunches to send with your kindergarteners each day can be a real drag. Let's be honest, most of us would rather just slap some sun butter on wheat, slice an apple, and throw in a bag of Hot Cheetos and call it a day. Alas, that's probably not the best, and it also gives you nothing to post on your Instagram pages. One way out of this rut is to use a bento box. That's why I've compiled the eight best bento boxes for kindergarten that will step up your lunch and your Insta game.
There are a ton of bentos on the market. I've been using them for my children for years. Some are thermal, some are designed to be easier to clean, and all of them are made for little hands and little tummies. There are a few styles that I've found are the easiest for kids to handle. The first is the vacuum sealed stackable lunch boxes. The lids are easy to manipulate, and the stacking style assures that no food will touch the other. The next is the traditional bento boxes you'd see at a Japanese restaurant. They're great for kids who love seeing all their food lined up, and they have more compartments, which can be a boon for parents hoping to add variety to their kids' diets.
