Great question! While a typical school lunch box has one big compartment to cram a sandwich and snacks for recess and lunch breaks, a bento lunch box is a more creative and considered approach to meals on the go. Lunch that actually gets eaten? Game changer. No more finding a half eaten barely recognisable sandwich at the bottom of the bag at the end of the holidays in the already-chaos of back to school!
Our cute bento box containers have six roomy compartments labelled with vegetables, dairy, fruit, protein and grain to make lunch prep easy. Follow their lead and you can be sure that the kiddos will be getting everything they need to be energised for the day!

Can I store the bento box in the freezer?
Plastic and silicone bento boxes can usually withstand freezer temperatures. In contrast, glass and certain plastics (those not labelled as freezer-safe or brittle plastics like polystyrene) can become brittle and crack. Always check the product's care sticker to be sure.
Is a bento box microwave safe?
Check the bottom of your bento box for the microwave-safe symbol, which looks like a series of waves. Most bento boxes these days are designed to be microwave-safe, but it's good to make sure before you press “start” on that microwave!
Are your bento boxes BPA-free?
Stuck On You’s bento boxes are BPA and phthalate-free. This is so important because BPA is a nasty chemical that can leach into food, potentially causing adverse effects on the brain, especially in young children.
Is a bento box the same as a lunch box?
A bento box is a type of lunch box originating from Japan. It has compartments separating different foods to promote a balanced meal and keep flavours and textures distinct.
What age is a bento box for?
Bento boxes come in various sizes and designs suitable for different ages. Larger boxes with multiple compartments are great for school-aged kids and adults, while toddler-specific bento boxes typically have fewer sections and feature simpler latch mechanisms.
Can I wash the lunch box in my dishwasher?
Most lunch boxes are dishwasher safe, but check the care sticker or look for a dishwasher-safe symbol on the bottom to be sure.
Some lunch boxes, like ours, separate into components (the bento tray and silicone insert) that you can chuck in the top rack of your dishwasher. Others may recommend hand washing to protect the lunch box’s seals and latches.
