Awesome, thanks! I'll check it out! (I've been haunting eBay and Amazon.com for the last 20 min...LOL)

I've been packing "bento" style lunches for ages, even when my kids were in grade school. They loved having things in separate containers, rather than in plastic baggies! I guess it's something carried over from my early school years in Japan (Navy brat, dad was stationed there).

In India, lunch is carried in metal stacking containers. I still have one that Coleman used to make for camping, lol!

I once found stacking bento container sets at BigLots, but I didn't like the "cheesy" quality. Instead, look for an insulated lunch box that comes with containers, or look for the containers that are already partitioned (I forget who makes them), or create your own set to fit inside an insulated kit or tote (my daughter "stole" my cool Hawaiian print insulated lunch tote, lol!).

Here's the one "as seen on Rachel Ray"

Oh, that would be fun! I hadn't heard of a bento box, I had to google it. I think I might try it for a fun indoor picnic on a rainy day with my grand daughters. Thanks!

has anybody played with the idea of "bento box" lunches or other meals? I think it would be fun to pack a bento box lunch for myself and my dd (her to take to school...) and know that I had a fun lunch coming in the day. One that DIDN'T come through my car window!

Anybody?
