If you want to impress officemates or delight your kids with a visually appetizing lunch box, follow this simple step-by-step guide on how to put together a bento, Japanese style.

Look for a container or a bento box where you will assemble your food in. Elongated ones are highly recommended as these can be divided into small sections for more variety in your meal.

Daiso Japan carries a wide selection of bento boxes in adorable designs for both young and old. Some even come with a two-piece cutlery like a spoon & fork or a fork& knife to keep the cute theme going.

Pick up some food dividers and silicone cups that you will need to separate items, keeping wet food items from mixing with the dry ones.

Daiso Japan sells food dividers and lunch box sheets in an array of shapes, colors, and sizes that you can mix and match. Pick ones that are colorful for added visual impact.  Colorful sticks with cute fruit or animal “heads”, are a great way to keep small foods together and can also be bought at the store for 3 for P188. Aside from these, there are other adorable choices as well!

Plan your meal. For a bento box that’s filling, it’s important to plan a balanced and well-portioned meal. Include veggies, fruits, some kind of protein, and carbs like rice or bread in your bento.
