22 Creative Bento Lunch Ideas

From Intricate Sandwich Art to Gamer Bento Boxes

— September 2, 2014 — Life-Stages
Since most people tend to eat with their eyes before anything else, the way food is presented always makes a difference, especially when a bento lunch has been prepared with care.

These bento box for school ideas turn characters from popular video games, TV shows, movies and other holiday icons into edible creations, with just about any foods that you can think of, from bread to meat as well as colorful fruit and vegetables. In addition to looking amazing, the different compartments of the bento box tend to make it possible to easily work in foods from many food groups, so that a lunch can be balanced in terms of its composition as well as its nutritional content.
