Lunch ideas bento box for adults and kids! Whether you are headed back to work or back to school, thinking outside of the box for lunches can make lunchtime enjoyable and more than just a break to have lunch. I know for me, when I have an interesting lunch to look forward too, it makes my morning so much happier! Plus, it’s all about easy prep, right?
I personally am loving the bento box lunch idea alternative instead of a sandwich.
What is a bento box lunch? The bento box gives you the option to pack sandwiches, yogurt, cheese, crackers, fruit, a salad, and dessert all in one container. Having fresh food items that are on the go and easy to pack is key.

Trending on google 2021: Isn’t it funny how google knows it’s back to school? This post has been trending on google for the last week and it’s because parents are searching not only for back to work lunch ideas, but back to school lunch ideas.
When I was a kid, it was pretty exciting to get lunch in the school cafeteria instead of one packed by your mom.
Fast forward a generation, and it seems like my kids are happier to bring their lunch from home, and I hear many other parents are saying the same thing.
I’m not complaining–I’m happy to send a little bit of love and lunch from home with them each day. But I have to admit, sometimes it feels like we get in a rut with our home packed lunches.
This is why I love the lunch box bento box idea! This school year, I’m gathering ideas that will help me to “think outside the lunch box” when I’m planning lunches.
Here are some of my favorite ideas for packing delicious, healthy, interesting, and fun lunches for kids and adults.
