The Little Lunchbox Co lunchboxes allow you to make endless combinations of nutritious food that will look appetising by using different textures and colour combinations.
Little Lunchbox Co Lunchboxes have been designed specifically for children who prefer variety in their lunchbox.
Three Compartments – Watermelon or Shields or Dinosaur or Flamingo
The Bento Three is perfect for children who prefer sandwiches, wraps or salads but still like some variety. The individually sealed compartments in the Bento Three allow you to pack a sandwich or wrap next to wet foods such as yoghurt, dips or fruit without the risk of spoiling.
Capacity – 1L
Dimensions – 17.5cm x 17.5cm x 5.6cm
Don’t pack yoghurt drinks, fruit that will go juicy after it gets warm like watermelon, juices, soups, oil or runny/watery dressings in your Little Lunchbox.
The seal in our Bento’s is designed to stop the transfer of wet foods with the consistency of tub yoghurts (not squeeze packs) and dips, not liquids such as salad dressings, soups or sauces.
Follow these four easy steps to avoid transfer of foods:
- Use only foods with the recommended consistency above.
- When packing foods such as tinned or cut fruit, particularly fruits such as watermelon and citrus, ensure you remove all excess liquid with paper towel before placing into the lunchbox. If you are worried about the transfer of certain foods place the food into the empty lunch box and stand it on its side for 15 minutes to test.
When placing food or wet foods into each compartment leave a 5mm gap between the food and the top of the compartment to ensure the lid is able to close properly allowing the seal to engage.
- Once you have finished packing your Bento box close the lid and latch, place both palms on top of the lid and give it a firm push to ensure the seal has engaged.
- We recommend you pack your Little Lunch Box Bento into a cooler bag with a cold pack to keep the contents cool and avoid spoiling.
- This easy clean lunch box has a child friendly latch with no removable parts to get lost and is made from durable BPA free products.
- Store wet foods* next to dry foods without the risk of spoiling
- The Little Lunchbox Co Lunchboxes are dishwasher safe (top rack – low temperature).
- It is great for the environment and will save you money by allowing you to buy in bulk, which is cheaper and creates much less waste compared to individually packaged food.
- The fun designs on the outside will make your children eager for meal time to arrive.
- Because the bento lunchbox has no removable parts it is compact yet holds a deceptively large amount of food to help fuel growing bodies. It is even suitable for adults.

Whether it is your child’s first year at Kindy or last year of High School.
Creating healthy school lunches is the key to sustaining their body to get through the day!
- Write a list of each child’s favourite sandwich topping, fruit,
vegetables and snacks. – Use our free Printables for Fruit, Veges, Dairy, Carbs and Protein ideas.
- Pre-cut fruit and vegetables and pop them in airtight containers in the fridge the night before.
- A small container of cubes of cheese, a container of watermelon cubes, strawberries or slices of carrots would be great to bring to school for crunch and sip, fruit time or morning tea.
- Dip fruit like apples and bananas in citrus juice (lemon or orange juice) or soda water to prevent browning.
- Bake in bulk (when you have some spare time) and freeze savoury and sweet muffins, scrolls, pikelets, scones for quick lunchbox snacks.
- Chill cooked foods (like hard boiled eggs) before packing the lunchbox.
- Pack leftovers straight into the lunchbox the night before. (corn cobs, pasta).
- Cut food into appropriate bite size pieces to encourage maximum food is eaten in limited time.
- Put the lunchbox inside an insulated lunch bag that will hold an ice pack and lunch box, to keep everything cool for several hours.
- Choose an easy to open but leak proof water bottle. In summer months add ice cubes or freeze and wrap in a tea towel.
- Try to avoid sending junk food in packets, these processed foods are not good for growing children and create a lot of rubbish in the school grounds.
