Not so new to SparkPeople, I've been here for just over a month.
Not so new to bento, I've been doing that off and on for about a year.
I look forward to school starting tomorrow so my daughter and I will get back into bento for lunch. It is fun for us to figure out what to put into it, and how to make it special. She's a junior in high school, but it doesn't bother her to pack a lunch even though technically she can leave campus this year and go have fast food.
I'm almost 50, have about 35 pounds to lose, and am going to depend on my bento to help me with portion control.
Here's a link to pictures of the bento boxes we use. I know they're completely American, but I like having lids and being able to wash them in the dishwasher. It's still easy to put colorful, yummy food in them! www.laptoplunches.com/
