I have had a struggle with keeping my kids gluten free. Lunches are particularly difficult. At least, they were until we discovered the joys of bento box lunches! The kids love their bento boxes. It's very simple to make their lunches gluten free and to give them a varied lunch with the bento. We made onigiri last night for the first time. I made the balls, and then the kids decorated theirs with nori. I made a filling out of seasoned tofu, sesame seeds, and pickles. Here is my oldest daughter's bento for today's lunch: Sharkies (in the lid), onigiri, carrots, dried blueberries, olives, and a banana vile of Bragg liquid aminos (in the top compartment), Snapea Crisps, a Hershey's kiss, and apple slices (in the bottom compartment).
