Laptop Lunches - Bento Buddies Giveaway

Wednesday, June 23, 2010 Posted by Rita A


Summertime is here and the kids are out of school. Perhaps they are on their way to summer outings. How do you keep them filled with nutritious meals on the go? Laptop Lunches has a very good answer. Bento Buddies 2.0.

I love the idea of Bento Box Lunches. I have been browsing the internet to find out how to make those cute adorable happy lunches. With the Bento Buddies 2.0 set, you have an assortment of useful sizes of containers, perfect for packing a tasty meal. I like the idea of Bento Buddies 2.0 containing NO PVC, phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), or lead. Moms can feel safe using these handy containers. Pack your kids favorites!

Adults can use Bento Buddies too. Imagine the savings of carrying your own lunch to work or on an outing. You can save time and of course money, plus by using the Bento Buddies you save on waste. That is good for the environment.

I am very curious about the super cute Bento Meals. The art of Bento recipes is amazing. The idea is to make a happy smiling meal. Fun faces are made out of foods. It is truly an edible art form. Shapes of rice are formed into animals or faces with eyes and smiles. Use your vegetables to make a larger face with broccoli hair and tomato eyes. How wouldn't smile at a meal that is smiling back at you? Laptop Lunches has more awesome lunch ideas and a photo gallery of delectable meals. You can even sign up for their Weekly Lunch Menus subscription sent to your email.


Courtesy of Laptop Lunches, I was sent the Bento Buddies 2.0 set for experimenting with Bento meals. Funny thing is, I did not realize until the set came, I have this incredible set. I have been using the same set for months and I love it!!! It has such good sizes for packing meals. I like the smallest one for dressings, the larger one holds the main entree or a nice size salad. Veggies or side dishes fit nicely in the mid-size containers. I do need to invest in the outer carrying box for my Bento Buddies 2.0. I have been using one of my own carry boxes but I would love to have a box that matches. Bento Buddies 2.0 will fit the Bento System 2.0.

You can find all your Bento Box needs at Laptop Lunches: Bento-ware for everywhere.

I am thrilled to have received Bento Buddies 2.0 from Laptop Lunches! Since I already have this amazing set, I am letting one of you have a chance to win it.

    They are all so pretty. I would love to open any of them up for lunch. The Bread and Cheese Picnic looks like a good one to start with but the one with avocado looks yummy to me (my kids would freak, however).

    One question, are they microwave safe? I can't imagine eating cold chili for lunch.
