Discover the Benefit to the Bento Box

ARO_BackToSchool_EmailArt_BentoBox_275X200

Packing a healthy lunch for your child can be a challenge. What meal will be both delicious and nutritious? (After all, you don’t want your handmade fruit kabobs being traded for crème-filled snack cakes.)

A solution many parents are using with great success takes a cue from traditional Japanese bento boxes. In its most fundamental form, a bento box is a small compartmentalized container used for holding food. Bento boxes traditionally include a fish or meat, rice and vegetables. However, the many compartments make creativity easy.

Beyond the wonderful artistic presentation, bento boxes offer health benefits including portion control and well-balanced meals. Reusable containers also cut down on waste from sandwich and snack wrappers. Any way you pack it, this fun alternative to peanut butter and jelly is perfect for fussy eaters who prefer food groups remain separate as well as more adventurous eaters who thrive on unique dining experiences.

To achieve the full benefit of a bento box, balance your meal with vegetables, protein and starch. You can also add dairy and fruit to the mix depending on dietary needs. Remember that cookie cutters turn ordinary bread and fruit into smiling faces, butterflies and more. Use olives or grapes for eyes and slivers of red pepper for smiley faces. The options are truly endless. Plus, if last night’s meat balls were a crowd-pleaser, bento boxes are a great way to use leftovers. (Just remember to refrigerate as needed.) Remember kids should eat every color of the rainbow throughout a day to ensure their nutritional needs are met.

Finally, don’t think of bento boxes as merely child’s play. A bento box lunch is the perfect solution to satisfy adult-sized hunger at the office as well.

Caramel Apples Made Easy

Caramel Apple Box, a sweet deal for only $7.

 

Caramel apples are a fun fall tradition that date back to the early 1900’s. William Kolb, a candy maker, is known for creating the first candied apple by experimenting with red cinnamon candy. He placed the apples in his store window and they’ve been a big hit ever since. People loved the candied apple so much that they started making their own variations; one being the caramel apple.

Making caramel apples are a fun, but collecting the sticks, caramels and toppings can be a challenge. Don’t worry; we have made it easy for you! Pick up our Carmel Box and create the perfect caramel apples.

For just $7 you get:

  • Two 5 oz. bags of Werther’s chewy or soft caramels
  • One bag of Diamond almonds
  • One 30 ct. package of apple sticks
  • One jar Cake Mate sprinkles

Don’t forget to stop in the produce department for apples. We have a great selection at great prices!
