Celebrate National Nutrition Month this March by Packing Healthy Bento Lunches with Laptop Lunches

Since 1973, the American Diabetic Association has urged Americans to focus on making informed food choices and developing sound eating and exercise habits during National Nutrition Month each March. This March, Laptop Lunches® is challenging you and your family to celebrate National Nutrition Month by packing a healthy lunch for each day of the month! Using a Laptop Lunches® bento lunch box will simplify the process of creating wholesome, on-the-go meals for all ages.

Named the first-place winner in the Best Kids Lunch Box category of the SheKnows 2010 Parenting Awards, Laptop Lunches® bento lunch boxes are great for school, play, travel, and more! They are reusable, recyclable, dishwasher/microwave safe, and contain no phthalates, bisphenol A (BPA), or lead. Adults can also pack meals for work in their Laptop Lunches® bento box. Each bento box holds five inner containers of varying sizes that accommodate a variety of foods and encourage a balanced meal that covers all of the major food groups. Try filling up the large containers with a sandwich, pasta salad, or fruit, and packing veggies, a hard-boiled egg, or yogurt in the smaller containers. The options are endless!

The theme for National Nutrition Month 2011 is “Eat Right with Color.” This fits perfectly with the idea of using a bento box, which encourages the creation of visually appealing meals that taste even better than they look! Visit the Laptop Lunches® Bento Menu Library for 365 delicious lunch ideas that are fun to make and delicious to eat. Each menu is designed with nutrition in mind, so you can feel good knowing that you are making smart choices when it comes to what you pack for lunch. For even more creative menu ideas, check out the Laptop Lunches User’s Guide, a book full of healthy lunch ideas, lunch making tips, and recipes.

National Nutrition Month is a great opportunity to take a look at the ways that your family can improve eating habits and make healthier food choices. This March, make the switch to packing bento lunches for your children, instead of sending them to school with lunch money or packing the same old peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a brown bag. When lunchtime rolls around at the office, take out your bento lunch and enjoy a satisfying meal that’s good for you, instead of making a trip to the vending machine or the local fast food restaurant. Laptop Lunches® bento boxes make it simple! Visit to learn more.
