Get to know how to make a healthy inspired lunchbox without wasting food.
Whether it’s for school or work, packing a lunchbox can become boring, frustrating and even stressful. It is time to get out of that rut and get inspired to create healthy school lunches.
The first step is to make a list of what's already stocked in your pantry and fridge. Then, simply head to the Little Bento World website to download two printable lists of creative and healthy lunchbox ideas using a wide range of common household groceries.
“We want to encourage and inspire everyone to have a healthy bento lunchbox every day!” says school lunchbox expert and Little Bento World owner, Yvette Bowyer. “Along with our unique bento lunchboxes, printables and daily lunchbox ideas via Facebook and our blog, Little Bento World has received amazing feedback from our customers on how we have helped them stay motivated to create healthy lunchboxes for their children.”
The Carb, Protein and Dairy printable will help you make healthy choices without spending a fortune or wasting food. Create variety with the same style lunch every day using different proteins, dairy and carbohydrates.
The Fruit and Vegetable printable shows what’s in season and when in Australia and helps add a rainbow burst of colour to create a healthy inspiring lunchbox everyone will love.
Little Bento World is fast becoming the largest online bento store in Australia, with unique bento products direct from Japan. Yvette suggests “Utilising different tools like our Panda Rice Molds and Bunny Egg Molds, helps create a fun healthy lunchbox and get out of the lunchbox rut.”
5 Lunchbox Ideas you have in your cupboard:
- Tinned tuna or chicken for sandwiches or pasta salad
- Beans (chickpeas, baked beans, lentils) for extra protein
- Tortillas, wraps and pitta bread for different sandwich styles
- Couscous, pasta or rice instead of sandwiches
- Cereal for trail mixes

“Bento” is something Little Bento World is very passionate about. The world of Bento is an amazing journey of fun, creative and inspiring food. It is the Japanese art of packing an appealing meal in a divided bento lunch box.
Little Bento World was opened in February 2013, by School Lunchbox Expert Yvette Bowyer, who has been blogging since 2011 about Bento Lunches she creates for her children (age 3 and 5), after having her own struggles with her daughter’s eating habits.
"We uses every single item she stocks in the store, so you know it has been tried and tested in a 'Mums kitchen' and school lunchbox and is something our children adore." says Yvette.
Yvette, has found it hard to find high quality products that were different and fun here in Australia. After spending many hours researching and speaking to Bento users and distributors, Little Bento World now offers the largest range of the highest quality Bento products and accessories that are directly imported from Japan or America in Australia. Many of the products are totally unique and exclusive to Little Bento World.
