How to make a colorful bento lunch box for kids

Here I’m explaining the ingredients and method of making a healthy Peanut butter

Prepare time: 5 min
Cook: 0 min
Ready in: 5 min
Cuisine: Kids bento box
Serves: 1


  1. Cooked chapati/ roti/ tortilla wrap – 1 no.
  2. Homemade peanut butter – 1.5 tablespoon
  3. Ripe banana – 1 no.
  4. Vegetables of choice – carrot, cucumber and cherry tomato
  5. Fruits – strawberries and blue berries


  1. Spread the peanut butter over the chapati evenly.
  2. Place the ripe plantain on it and roll tightly. Peanut butter will act as a glue to stick the chapati.
  3. Cut the roll into bite-sized pieces.
  4. Arrange the cut roll pieces in a bento box/ lunch box.
  5. Arrange carrot sticks, cucumber slices and cherry tomatoes.
  6. Arrange strawberries and blueberries.
