Kotobuki bento | fancy Panda lunch

This is a fancy panda-centric lunch Tyler had last week.

Panda bento box lunch

The top section holds a sandwich, cut and stamped with the panda piece to the CuteZcute cutter set. There are also two mini silicone bento cups with crunchy treats: peanut butter panda puffs cereal and a couple Hello Panda cookies.

The bottom section is a mix of fruit and veggies: grapes, strawberry, cucumber wedges, carrots, and half a kiwi. There's a cute little panda pick tucked in there too.

Panda bento box zig zag kiwi fruit

The kiwi is all awesome and zig-zaggy. That was super easy to do using a "v" shaped knife (similar to this one). I won one a couple weeks ago for participating in a knife demonstration at a local store. Yes, my kitchen nerdiness runs deep. 

This is packed in a two-tier bento box, in one of our beloved Kotobuki boxes
I adore our Kotobuki boxes to the point that I am afraid to send them to school with the kids. That's silly and ridiculous and I need to get over it. I'm working on it. I'm setting a goal to use them more often. Gulp!

Offering lunch or breakfast to anybody is common but way of offering, venue is important thing to consider. Unique working style and freshness are the things which are critical.

Melissa, I love those little Kotobuki boxes! Question please, do they stay secured or do you need to put a band around them? Thanks!

These boxes (and most every two-tiered, or stacked box), does need a band to help keep it closed. They are usually referred to as bento belts. :)

How does your son eat the kiwi with the skin still on? Can he scoop it out with a spoon or something?

Tiffannie - Tyler eats the kiwi skin too. :) The skin has a lot of fiber and nutrients in it. Paige used to eat the skin when she was little too, but decided she didn't like the kiwi skin when she was around 4. Both the younger ones will also eat strawberry tops/leaves sometimes.
