Litterless Lunch Bento Style

One complaint I often hear from parents is that their school has adopted a litterless lunch policy and they find it hard to pack lunch on those days. I can understand how difficult that can be, so today I decided to show a simple littlerless lunch, bento style.


This lunch contains:

  • leftover roast beef wrap
  • homemade nut-free bar
  • snap peas
  • seed crackers
  • cheese
  • raspberries
  • apple


When my daughters are done eating their apple, they place their apple core into the small container where their raspberries were so that makes for easy clean-up when they bring their lunchboxes home at the end of the day.


What are some things you pack on litterless lunch days?

  1. these look like great containers, but I must say your food presentation looks even better

  2. My daughter starts school next year, and I’ve been on board the Bento box concept/trend for a long time now. It promotes very healthy eating and offers a great variety of tastes and textures for their young palates. The options are limitless, you just have think outside the box, no pun intended 😉 The pea pods look so fresh and crispy, yum!

  3. Do they finish EVERYTHING? It looks like a lot… My son is in JK and I put 2 different fruits and a small thermos of hot lunch, which amounts to the volume of food he has for lunch at home, but he started to bring the thermos back almost full and often says there was no time for it… they don’t have lunch time, but only 2 “nutritional breaks” 20 min each which is only enough to eat snacks, but not proper meal . That drives me nuts, because I didn’t want to teach him to leave on snacks nor to have those snacks every 2 hours.

  4. Il love the convenience and the fact that I don’t have to buy baggies all the time. Organized, pleasant and almost a surprsie each day for the kids.

  5. This is perfect; a lot of schools are asking kids to bring litterless lunches now. Plus, it’s fun and there’s variety

    We don’t have a litter less lunch policy at our school but we do use a reusable plastic divided container in my daughter’s lunchbox in order to cut back on our own use of plastic bags. We pack her sandwich wraps, lots of fruit and veggies, soup in a thermos, dried fruit and occasionally crackers.

  8. Bento lunches are so adorable!

  9. These are so smart and definitely cut down on waste. Great photos, btw!
