The Dreaded School Lunch
Thank GOD September is just around the corner and the kids are getting back to school. But what to put in their lunch boxes now that Jamie Oliver has us all completely paranoid? There’s only so many ways to make a tofu salad look inviting UNLESS you look to the Japanese for inspiration. Mums and Dads looking for new ways to dress up the old school lunch box and motivate the kids towards munching their ‘5 a day’ may find success by introducing the kids to a Bento style lunch box that offers the little darlings a number of healthy and nutritious options. Brown bag boredom will become a thing of the past with the ‘Bento’ concept, designed like little jewellery boxes with subdivided or even stacked sections that hold mini-dishes. These compartments are easily removed, making cleaning a cinch and creating a waste-free alternative to plastic bags. For inspiration check out www.laptoplunches.com/ Includes Western Bento-style boxes and accessories as well as menu ideas, recipes, & ways to use up leftovers to make lunch fun AND nutritious!
