I stumbled across this book when searching for lunchbox ideas for my daughter. I was so glad I decided to get it, it has given me so much inspiration in decorating my daughters lunch and dinner and she is now excited to eat her lunch. I would definately recommend.

gorgeous book filled with lots of yummy ideas & tips for childrens' lunch boxes,
to be honest, I doubt I'll be getting up each morning to make these works of arts for my kids but I'd certainly use them for parties

Althought this book had lots of great & very cute ideas of how to make cute bento's, it's doesn't have many recipes - so It was a disappointment for me - recipe wise.
I think it's a great book to have, since it really does give a lot of great ideas and ways to make very cute lunchs.
