Handy and cute for mini-lunches!

Zojirushi America has the greatest mini-bento set, perfect for school lunches. With the vacuum insulated main bowl, and its two side bowls, its a great set for reducing waste and being convenient. It even changes to half its size when its empty!

Boug is by no means a picky eater, but she does like variety and she does like more than just a sandwich and yogurt for lunch. The mini-bento is a great way for me to pack lunches that I know she's going to eat, and not have too much returning home, uneaten.

She's even been trying to perfect her chopstick using skills, since the mini-bento comes with chopsticks in the cutest case and she has already told me that she will NOT be subsituting a fork or a spoon for the chopsticks! I love it because it keeps her interested in her lunch, keeps her from getting bored with what she's eating!Had to test out the hot/cold retention though, because I want to be sure that if I send something to school warm, that its going to still be warm when its lunchtime and I wasn't disappointed! I put some oatmeal into the container at breakfast time, 8:30ish, because it was the easiest thing on hand, and I checked on it at about 12:30 pm. It was exactly how you'd hope it would be, warm and ready to eat! I know that's definitely going to come in handy this winter especially, when I don't want to send her with a cold sandwich, on a cold, NY winter day.

All in all, I'm so happy with the mini-bento and Boug can't wait to use it! And the green print that she recieved is going to make her one of the most stylish kiddies in kindergarten!
