About products and suppliers

Food is one of the biggest non-fixed expenses. While a person can’t easily make adjustments to how much they spend on rent for a given lifestyle, they can make immediate choices to the food they eat for an immediate impact on their financial bottom – line. One of the most popular methods to save money, especially for the working - class, is choosing to bring pack lunch instead of eating out. The latter can easily save around at least fifty percent of one meal cost and is relatively easy to implement. An individual cooks a big batch of meals on the weekend, then reheats a batch for lunch for the workday. The meal is then packed into a bento box or lunch bag.

What is a lunch box?

A lunch box, also called a bento lunch box, is a device for storing and sometimes keeping food heated throughout a workday. Lunch boxes feature insulation of some kind and a way for food to be organized inside the box. A user would normally take the food portions out, then mix them together when it comes time for eating. Lunch boxes can also help guide users in portioning food into appropriate amounts. For example, a bigger space is allocated for carbs like rice and potatoes and smaller spaces for meats and sauces. Of course, users can switch things up however they like.

What are the different types of lunch boxes?

People are usually first acquainted with a kid’s lunch box in their childhood years. A parent or nanny boxes lunch for the child to consume during their recess or lunch break. In later years, people may use different types of lunch boxes for adults. Both lunch boxes for men and lunch bags for women are available, of course differing in shape and color. Other lunch boxes may be had for specific diets, such as Japanese bento boxes for fans of Japanese dishes. More advanced lunch boxes, such as electric lunch boxes and heated lunch boxes, feature not just insulation but an active heat source that can keep food warm for longer.
