A bento box is an all-in-one Japanese lunch box containing a single portion of a balanced meal. This meal typically consists of a starch (like rice or noodles), a protein, and assorted vegetable and fruit side dishes.
Japanese bentos are meant to be eaten at room temperature. The fact is the longer food has been lying around, it gets less fresh, even if you put an ice pack or keep it in the refrigerator. Therefore, I highly recommend reheating cooked food before packing lunch. Reheating cooked food kills bacteria.
A bento box is great for when you're packing a meal with multiple components (like a main entrée and two side dishes) that you want to keep separate without having to put each food item in individual containers. Because they have divided compartments, bento boxes can be useful for portion control, too.
