In the blue box is a jelly sandwich, cut in half and each half sealed, with some Veggie Straws to the side, the orange box holds strawberries and blueberries, green cup is cheddar cheese, large pink box has cucumber and carrot sticks, the small dipping box holds lite ranch dressing.
This bento was packed for my daughter. It was the just the right amount of food for her to have lunch and two snacks out of - which was great for the long day of running errands we had that day.
This is one of the original Laptop Lunch boxes. I bought this for my oldest child when he was in kindergarten. I found though, that he just didn't eat much while at school (he still doesn't!) and this box was bigger than he needed. I forgot about it for a long time, and just recently have been using it more regularly.
The Laptop Lunch system is great for holding more food than the traditional (little) bento boxes. It's also an easy introduction to making bento lunches for most people because the layout is less intimidating than having an empty barrier-less box staring at you as fill it. ;)
The original Laptop Lunch box (like this one) comes with a lid for one of the larger boxes (for mine, the magenta box has a lid), and then a lid for the tiny dipping box too. Laptop Lunches recently rolled out a new box called Laptop Lunch 2.0. The new version comes with three lids, the same two as before plus a lid for the smaller sized boxes too. So convenient! Also great, they have an extra set of inner boxes called Bento Buddies, one of which is double sized box - awesome for full sized sandwiches or a nice salad:
I can't wait to get my hands on the new system with the Bento Buddies. ;)
