Did you know that, in Japan, it is a cultural norm among mothers to pack kids’ lunches that not only taste good, but also look artsy, creative, colorful, and nutritious?

In fact, once the cooking is done, the average Japanese mother blocks as much as 90 minutes every morning just to arrange food in a way that makes her child smile!

We’re not talking colorful arrays of chunky of vegetables next to a compact bed of well-cooked rice. Packing a Japanese-style lunchbox for kids is about meals that resemble popular cartoon characters, anthropomorphic animals, and flowers to make food look interesting!


But why such fuss over a modest homecooked lunch, you may wonder! It all boils down to the single fact that most kids are picky eaters. Send them off with food that’s too mushy, too chewy, or drab-looking and you can surely expect them to return home with a hungry tummy.

Sounds like your kid? Welcome to parenthood! While the Japanese mothers have mastered the art of packing lovely-looking food in a bento, you can begin by packing a colourful meal in a TyffynKyds lunchbox. TyffynKyds from Vaya is customized to satiate a child’s appetite.


TyffynKyds, just like Vaya Tyffyn, comes with partitions to help include variety and prevent mixing of foods. This range of stainless-steel lunchboxes for kids also come in attractive themes. You can include eggs, pancakes, yoghurt, salads, curries and fruits in  this compact tiffin box using the partitions that come as part of the package! Pack lunch the Japanese way in a TyffynKyds and your child’s lunch is bound to look awesome inside and out!
