Back to School: Five days of five minute bento box lunch ideas!

Back to School: Five days of five minute bento box lunch ideas!

I am no Martha Stewart, nor do I pretend to be, so when it comes to my kids school lunches I am all about quick, easy, convenient and most of all HEALTHY options.  In this post, I share a week’s worth of stupidly easy and healthy bento box lunch ideas for busy mum’s on the fly!

Only got five minutes to pack lunch? No worries, with these simple and easy bento box lunch ideas! Feeding my kids nutritious and healthy food is super important to me, but not at the expense of spending hours in the kitchen making and creating. ‘Ain’t nobody got time for that!’

Recently my girls were lucky to receive the NEW ‘Stuck on You’ bento style lunch boxes! I have been a massive fan of the Stuck on you since my eldest daughter Marley started school almost five years ago with their cute collection of personalised back to school items, so we were over the moon to experience their new bento boxes first hand.  Bento boxes are fab time savers and what I love the most is that they are a sustainable and convenient way to provide lunches to our kids, without all those packaging and plastics to dispose of everyday. I am personally in love the Stuck on You bento boxes because each compartment is conveniently labelled to manage your child’s daily dietary requirements.
