The Click Lock™ Bento Mealtime Set from Munchkin – Make lunchtimes fun, fresh and organised! See what we thought, and look out for the giveaway at the end of the page!
Some of you may remember, we reviewed the Munchkin Disney range for toddlers a while back, and now I have something new to share with you for ‘Back to School’
The Click Lock™ Bento Mealtime Set is great! It is a lunch box with three different lidded compartments, perfect for keeping all the lunch time food fresh and separate. It also comes with it’s own cutlery set embedded in the lid – how handy and cool 😀
The two smaller compartments in the Bento Box come labelled one for fruit and one for vegetables, and they are just the perfect size for some chopped up pieces. It is a good space saver too, as normally I have to put these in different tubs inside a lunch box and it can all end up quite bulky! The main compartment is a good size for sandwiches, or would be ideal if you wanted to send any cooked food in for your child’s lunch. As it is a secure separate compartment there is no worry about it touching any of the other food items. You should even be okay sending in something with sauce as there is the click lock lid in place! I will be trying this out once Mr T goes back to nursery as his nursery allows them to bring hot food in so with this box I can send him some rice and daal which he likes to eat.
As the idea of Bento is normally to make small portions of food look more appealing for little ones, I thought I should get into the spirit of this by making the sandwiches into different shapes. You can see the box I made here with a gingerbread man shaped sandwich. I put the orange pieces and cucumber slice into the fruit and vegetable sections and then just included a babybel next to the gingerbread man’s foot which is supposed to be a football. The boys were very pleased with the shaped sandwiches, and I don’t really think I will get away with giving them normal shaped ones now!! So I will have to get all my different shaped cutters out. I just did it with a regular cookie cutter that you would use for baking.
Also have a look at the Et Speaks from Home review as Eileen has made a great Bento box with a Japanese Geisha made from rice. I must try something like this myself!
