The 11 Best Bento Boxes For Kids
The perfect solution for kids whose foods can't touch.
Goodbye stained plastic containers; hello adorable bento boxes. We've got Japan to thank for the invention of these compartmentalized take-out boxes, which date back to the 16th century. They've seen multiple iterations and uses over the past several hundred years, but the design remains largely the same: The segmented containers are meant to hold multiple single servings of food—traditionally rice, veggies, and a protein.
Today, bento boxes are popular for packing lunches, and many brands design the reusable containers especially for kids. You can keep different lunch foods from touching (kid meal prep 101), and they're a win for sustainability. Plus, you've probably spent hours scrolling on TikTok seeing parents making the most adorable lunches in bento boxes and thought, "I can do that." Here are some of our favorites.
