Bento Box

This is the box shown in the collapsed storage state.

Now the only fault I could find and to be fair, it isn’t really a fault on the part of the box, is that the cutlery isn’t really designed for use by us adults. After all the box is designed for the teeny humans and therefore teeny weeny mouths! So my advice on this, pack spare cutlery!!!

The box managed to hold a significant amount of food and if you aren’t careful when packing, you may end up packing a meal that is too high in calories for your recommended intake.

Just a quick reminder that guidelines say an adult female needs 2000 calories per day and an adult male needs 2500 calories per day. Recommended intake for lunch is probably around 500 calories, although pregnant women and children have a different allowance.

Maki over at Just Bento has a fantastic beginners handbook for making bento if you  need some help on how to choose a box and packing advice. Her bento stash ideas are great!!

Rating out of five for this (non) bento box: I give it a strong 4 (^_^)
