About the Blog:
"What's for Lunch at Our House" was conceived in June 2007 when the author realized that she needed a better way to ensure her oldest would eat lunch at school. While pickiness wasn't an issue, lack of time to eat was. The appeal of bento boxes was the idea of a variety of healthy food in bite sized form, a better way to make sure her daughter was able to finish her lunch in the allotted time.

Over the years, the blog has evolved from simply tempting a child to eat quickly to enjoying the creativity and healthiness bento boxes encourage. Further interest has developed regarding bento lunches' environmentally friendly nature and the idea of reusable containers and waste-free meals, as well as cooking for and with children in order to teach nutrition and kitchen skills.
