Communication Made Easy With Bento Boxes

Bento is the go-to lunch box for people on the go. But have you tried them for unspoken communication? Bento boxes have earned fame as being the best option for healthy and nutritious lunch meals for people on the go. However, they have added another feather into their cap by becoming the best mode of unspoken communication between the maker and eater of the bento box content. How so, you may ask? Read below to learn How to Use Bento to Communicate.

To express unspoken love

A bento box meal is prepared with great care and affection with all love being poured into its preparation by the maker. The efforts undertaken to prepare the meal to ensure all nutritious food items are being included and the creative ways used to present the food in the bento box underlie the unspoken love and affection of the maker.

One mom upped her affection quotient intelligently by slipping a note to her child at the bottom of the bento box meal thanking her for finishing her lunch to the last morsel.

To become a confidant

Teenagers most often clamp up before their moms. One mom used the bento box to open up her daughter by sending her Kyaraben (character bento) through her entire school days. Messages sent through the bento box to motivate your teen to open up are mostly heartwarming though some moms use cheeky messages to get their message across.

To retaliate

Fights between mother and child or between couples can spill over to the next day. What happens to the lunch meal for the next day; the bento box food contents act as means of retribution. The eater opens up his or her bento to see just pickled plums filling the box with very small amounts of rice to go with it or it could be rice with uncooked egg on the top or the ultimate; just layers of uncooked and hard rice. Patching up is definitely the rule for the day or the person preparing your bento may just think of exacting revenge.

To act as brain-teasers

Bento box lunch meal is used to appetize the brain alongside tickling the tongue. This is possible with the aid of the increasingly popular pun bento. Riding the wave of popularity of the character bento, a new type of bento took form and that was the pun bento. Many moms or better halves are upping their creative intelligence to send brain teasing messages through this form of bento box.

To remind or celebrate

Celebration messages or setting up reminders can be done in a fun and loving way through the bento box. You can add a special birthday message alongside the delicious birthday cake for your loved one into his or her bento or you can just slip a reminder by using macaroni letters to do an important task on the way back home. Using bento box accessories go a long way in helping you get your message across.

On a concluding note

The bento box has come a long way from just being a mode of healthy and delicious lunch meal to becoming a versatile mode of communication!
