Just wondering if anyone does "bento" box lunches. I just bought a box for my lunches, and I'm looking for some ideas. I've looked on a few website, but wanting to hear from anyone on the forums that does it.
Apparently it's a great way to control portions (and help lose weight depending on what you put in there!).

How does it help with portion control? Can't you just put less amounts than you usually pack in a normal lunch box?

Bento box lunch suggestions
I "think" bento boxes can work better for some than 1 large box as you can separate your lunch and snack items , so veggies, fruit, carbs, protein and maybe treats/snacks are all divided, you obviously want to use the larger space for veggies and the smallest for treats plus it gives you the look of a large amount of food but it's not really so that may help plus it is easy to sometimes overfill 1 box if you have extra food
Once you get your bento work out how many sections there are and make a list of foods you can add - DS has one for lunch , and his has 5 compartments so I do break them up
Into - veggies, fruit, carbs, protein and snacks - some examples I do for his lunches are:
Salmon rice balls
Mini chicken drumettes
Wraps ( usually chicken salad)
Good luck and let us know what you end up putting in your bento!

At the Baby expo in Brisbane today I saw Yumboxes. They looked awesome. Had sections for each type of food ie carb protein etc and they were all individually liquid spill proof/sealed
