Inspiration from Angeline at Bambino Love.


A big hello from Melbourne. My name is Angeline, the founder of Bambino Love, mother of two gorgeous children. I love to encourage healthy eating and create nutritious food for my children. When I make lunch for my children, it needs to be fast and easy as time is precious. I always look for high quality, durable, reusable and zero waste lunch box products, with less disposable packaging for a healthier planet. At Bambino Love, I stock imported eco-friendly and good quality zero waste lunch boxes, insulated lunch bags, fun sandwich cutters, bento accessories and a wide range of baby feeding products.

We are a small Australian business who believe in providing the ultimate customer experience. Bambino Love only stock products that are BPA-Free, Phthalate-Free and eco-friendly. We are here to help you by supplying food and lunch box products that make meal time fun and enjoyable.

I would like to share some ideas that may be helpful to pack homemade lunches in a bento lunch box. I usually like to pack at least 4 types of foods: carbs/grain (carbohydrates), proteins, vegetables and fruits. I always include some type of vegetables in each lunchbox. Yes, even if I know it will come home uneaten. It sometimes take years for a kid from “NO” to being willing to try. High protein food will help kids stay fuller longer.

I like to pack with bold colours as it provides great visual impact and creates a better appetite.

Colours that you may consider : Red, Yellow, Orange and Green.

Examples: Carrot, bell pepper/capsicum, strawberries, plum, tomato, red radish, apple, corn, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, orange, lemon, grapes, raspberries, nectarines, banana, lettuce, cucumber, green onion, edamame, broccoli, spinach, snap peas, asparagus, green beans, brussels sprouts, green peas and kiwi fruit.

Always plan ahead what you would like to put in the lunch box. To cut down the preparation time, left overs from dinners would be ideal. You may pre-cook in big bulk dinner meals and freeze it. You may like to bake muffins, mini sausage rolls, zucchini fritters, pizza scrolls, patties, pies, cheese and bacon scrolls, banana bread, mini meatballs and mini quiches in a big batch and freeze it. You may pre-cut your vegetables and keep them in the fridge.

Here are some school lunches that I made for my kid using Boon Cargo, Bentgo kids, Lunchbots bento box.
A food cup is great for keeping wet things away from dry ones and hold loose items like blueberries in one place.

I send the lunch box to school in an insulated bag with cooling panel that keeps the food cool the whole day long at school with a frozen smoothie or yoghurt in a reusable food pouch.

You may use any type of lunch boxes to pack your kids school lunch. Get ones that are BPA-free and chemical free for your kids. You may also add on some cute and funny food picks, a lunchbox note and use silicone food cups. If you are packing hot food for your child, look for a thermal insulated food jar that is able to keep your food warm for hours.
No more stress! Get your little ones involved in making their lunchbox with the fun sandwich cutters and bento accessories. We ensure your lunch box will never be boring anymore and lunch boxes will keep coming home empty.

Lunch for today 10.02.2015

Marlee is so excited about her brand new lunchbox we got sent in the mail by Little Linky to use. At my daughters school they put their lunchboxes in their bags after second lunch and any leftover food needs to be thrown out. Well I won’t need to worry anymore as we have a fridge to go insulated lunch bag, a new lunchbots lunchbox to fit inside with a small metal container to go inside as well. How awesome!!! Oh and we also got a ecococoon water bottle.

Packed inside is- leftover Panko crumbed lamb chop, capsicum sticks, processed sugar free banana bread with butter, pork crackling in her little container inside as a treat, a cheese and Vegemite wrap cut up and an apple cored using cookie cutters after thinly slicing them and soaking them in salty water to stop browning. Marlee is so excited to take her new bag, she gave me the biggest hug when I showed her the goodies and said thank you mum you’re the best mum ever! How sweet, and I am not the one to thank at all. Little Linky is the one to thank for these!

Oh and I checked too that Marlee’s easy lunchboxes fit as well so now I can rotate them! Yay!


I am feeling very blessed at the moment that businesses are sending me products for free to use and try for my kids. I appreciate it so much and it is definitely making it hard to choose which one I like the best as they are all great for different reasons. So thank you to Little Linky and all of the other businesses who send me products to review or just as a gift, you all rock!!
