Bear bento and Tortilla Pinwheels in New Bentgo Kids with Review (2)

I acquired a bentgo kids lunchbox last week and I've put it to use for these lunches. The second lunch became a real test especially to check out the leak-proof feature. The compartments were quite generously sized. The inner tray is removable for cleaning or possibly using alone at the table if you don't need to take it away from home. The latches are easy to open and close, secure, and the colors are beautiful.

I'm thinking that although it is printed on it's box 'Recommended For Ages 3 to 7', it could be useful for kids of any age. Since the tray is removable, I believe you can use it as soon as a child is able to eat solid foods on a high chair. My son is 10 years old and we love the size of the box, it has five compartments which are great for a variety of foods. The largest compartment is good for sandwiches, leftovers, pasta, salad and more. The other compartments are perfect for fruits, veggies, snacks, yogurt, applesauce and dips.

In the first bento I included a crust-less sandwich with a bear face cutout with Asiago  cheese eyes and mouth on mild cheddar cheese. Along with the sandwich I included organic baby carrots, organic apple slices, Annie's organic white cheddar bunnies, and seedless green grapes with a cute pick.

For this second bento, I made some of Nikolai's favorite tortilla pinwheels (Sun-butter and strawberry jam) and his sides were strawberries, a Colby and mozzarella cheese stick cut into bite sized rounds, sugar snap peas and organic applesauce with a cute frog baran.

  2. Lovely lunches! The design of the box does remind me of a Yumbox, does it hold a similar capacity?

    1. Thank you Jean!:) I believe they hold almost the same capacity, only difference is Yumbox Panino has 4 compartments and Bentgo has 5. The measurements of the boxes are the same.
