“Bento” is something Little Bento World is very passionate about. The world of Bento is an amazing journey of fun, creative and inspiring food. It is the Japanese art of packing an appealing meal in a divided bento lunch box.
Little Bento World opened in February 2013, by Yvette Bowyer (aka Mrs Bento), who has been blogging since 2011 about the Bento lunches she creates for her children (now age 6 and 8), after having her own struggles with her daughter’s eating habits from the age of 15 months old.
On February 2nd, 2017, Yvette bought the business My Lil Pouch – Reusable Food Pouches, after selling and using the products for over 5 years, it was a great way for Yvette to expand her business and grow her love for healthy school lunches for children!
After overwhelming feedback, support and emails from other parents seeking advice on getting their fussy children to eat, Yvette realised that there was a need for resources and tools to help Australian families create fun and exciting lunches to help encourage their children to eat healthy meals of their own.
Yvette has found it hard to find high quality products that were different and fun here in Australia. Little Bento World now offers the largest range of the highest quality Bento products and accessories that are directly imported from Japan or America to Australia. Many of the products are totally unique and exclusive to Little Bento World.
Yvette uses every single item she stocks in the store, with various youtube videos showing demonstrations – so you know it has been tried and tested in an Australian home and is something her children adore.
Little Bento World’s products will help you create lunches that are “Rubbish Free” and bring excitement back into an otherwise normal lunchbox!
Yvette is very passionate about Bento style lunches and believes that thinking outside of the square sandwich and getting a little creative with the everyday lunch box can do wonders for the appetite and imagination of your child. It doesn’t have to be fancy. A simple sandwich cutter can do wondrous things in a lunchbox.
Little Bento World can also be found on Facebook and instagram where you will find daily lunchbox ideas and please take the time to visit the blog and recipes for inspiration and to see the products Little Bento World stocks, in use!
