There are some great bento sites out there, like lunchinabox.net (kids) and justbento.com (adults) Just do a google search. I LOVE the bento flicker groups.

One of my favorite things to do is scour flickr and look at the bento pictures. They look yummy and cute! Plus they give me ideas of how to pack things I want to take or what to take.

I usually put in some left overs, sandwiches, veggies, fruits and cheese. I'm a dork and I actually have a spreadsheet listing out the different foods I can add to my bento. I guess it's so I can remember?!  Cheesy I don't use my bento box a lot right now since I come home at lunch but I plan on using it more during the spring and summer.

Dorayaki are very yum, plus they're pretty indestructable. And you can cut them into nice shapes if you're feeling creative.

The only signature he needed was my fist. With a pen in it. That I was signing with.

Just remember, if you put something she isn't willing to try, that is a day she goes undernourished, which can be a bear in school. I try to reserve trying new things for at home, or other times mommy or daddy are present, and send food that I know my daughter is comfortable with when she goes to school. That way, I know she is getting what she needs to make it through the day. My daughter normally has a simple lunch of a sandwich, some chips, fruit, yogurt or a cheese stick, a small treat and her drink. Sometimes she asks for something different like a hot dog or some noodles, but I have to pre-plan, taking into consideration that she has no way to warm her meal at school, so it has to start cold and stay cold until time to be consumed.

I hope this helps out some!

omg this helped me soooo much, your advice is invaluable. my daughter starts proper school in sept this year (i think you'd call it kindergarten, she'll be 4 and a half) and is a picky eater for lunch.

i bought her a bento box with a strap so she can do it herself (we have a couple of boxes with clips and she can't manage them) and we're going to be taking bentos for picnics over the summer to get her used to the idea. she's quite picky, but i think we'll do well because she loves potstickers and sushi rice hahahaha!
