A mum has found a ‘genius’ way to get messages across to her school son by writing heartfelt messages on his lunchbox every day.
The woman filled a bento box with cut up fruits like a mango and apple, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, mini cookies and a spinach wrap stuffed with leftover rotisserie chicken.
For each compartment, she wrote little messages on the see-through lid to accompany the ingredients inside the lunchbox, ranging from ‘eat healthy’, ‘love you’ and ‘napkin here for sticky hands’.
With the mango pieces, she penned a reminder: ‘Be careful with the toothpick,’ while she ended her thoughtful messages with a joke: ‘What kind of school do you go to if you’re an ice cream man?’

She said she uses a ‘permanent, dry erase’ marker so she’s able to erase the messages on the lid and ‘change them every day’.
Many praised the mum for bringing a smile to her son’s day at school while other parents said they couldn’t wait to do the same with their children.
‘We have the same container. I love it. I never thought of writing on it,’ one mum wrote, while another added: ‘This is so cute.’
While one person asked: ‘What’s the answer to the joke?’ to which someone answered: ‘Sundae school.’

The mum used a kinsho branded bento lunchbox featuring six divided compartments that’s perfect for storing portion-controlled food.

The bento boxes have received near-perfect reviews online, with many saying they love how it ‘seals properly and doesn’t leak’.
‘Couldn’t be happier with this bento set. The lid is super secure, meaning the food stays perfectly intact and doesn’t move/leak even on my long walks to the office. The size is perfect and bigger than I expected,’ one customer wrote.
