What looks good, tastes better. That’s the magic about food. And if this can help us make children eat healthier food, this is all for the better.

Packing healthier lunches for children becomes much easier with the inspiration from these Bento lunch boxes by Leukelunchbox.nl. Bento boxes are Japanese packed lunches that contain different layers of good food.

Another idea to make healthy lunches easy, is to make it a communal project. This was done by the Dabbawalla initiative by Waag Society. Like the Indian dabbawalla’s lunch delivery system, children and their parents took turns to create a meal for the whole class. Cutting costs, saving time, and sharing their culture and nutritional knowledge and tasty ideas as they went.
