It’s the ultimate lunch-on-the-go trend – the bento lunch box. So, what is a bento box? Very simply, it’s a super-portable, super-functional box that packs everything needed for a healthy, delicious on-the-move meal – right down to the utensils.
Bento boxes have been in-demand lately as people shift to making more healthy mealtime choices – nearly three in four Americans say they focus on healthy eating, and the majority are working to integrate more fresh foods into their day-to-day.
Encouraging Healthy and Varied Eats
That’s where custom bento boxes come in. With spots for everything – proteins, fruits, veggies and, even, a little treat or two, it’s easy to portion every aspect of a to-go lunch, while ensuring there’s a bit of everything. Gone are the days of popping a sandwich and a handful of cookies and calling it “lunch.” A bento box forces your hand – and your healthy eating a bit, by encouraging a few smaller bites spread out over a variety of foods.
For kids, it’s a slam dunk – because there are so many options, little lunchers can take a taste of a new food or two, without having to worry about not liking their meal. If green grapes aren’t their thing, they can move on to baby carrots, almonds, string cheese or whatever snack-style add-ins landed in their bento lunch box that day.
Good for You, Good for the Environment
Not only are bento boxes good for you and your clients, they’re good for the environment – and the wallet. Our Two-Tone Bento Custom Lunch Box with Utensils is top-rack dishwasher and microwave safe, eliminating added lunchtime waste – no more plastic forks and spoons, aluminum foil or disposable bags getting tossed post-meal. Simply wash, rinse or wipe these bento boxes and they’re ready for the next meal.
And because they’re reusable, your customers, your vendors and your employees will save serious bucks – no more buying all of the disposable goods needed to pack lunch every day. While it may not seem like a lot, costs such as napkins, brown paper bags, aluminum and plastic wraps, disposable utensils and containers, for starters – can easily cost $25 to $30 per month.
Over a year, they could be spending $300 to $400 on supplies – or they can use a branded bento box. With the Two-Tone Bento Box, they’ve got compartments for everything, plus reusable utensils that slide right in. Simply pack, snap closed and go.
Easy for On-the-Go Snacks
Lunch time isn’t the only time for bento boxes. Recipients can load up compartments for road trips, long flights or, simply, days on the go. Sometimes it’s hard to stop for meals and snacks – we get it. Now simply close, seal and toss in a bag or drawer. Even liquids, yogurts and other tough-to-pack eats will stay contained in these bento boxes.
Align Your Brand with Their Go-To Gear
Every time your customers dig into their custom bento boxes, they’ll have a big, bold reminder of your brand and your relationship.
