Here’s three easy ways to get more veggies into your kids on the daily, with these three clever bento lunch boxes.

Simply combine tasty, sun-ripened Qukes® baby cucumbers with a fun bento box. EASY and YUM!

You can’t beat Perfection

Perfection Fresh Qukes® Baby Cucumbers are the go-to cucumber snack we all need. Australian grown, with tender, crisp skins, they’re brilliant for snacking on the go or as a quick and light option to tide little one’s over until dinner. They can even be amped up and stuffed, just like we did here!

We took three packs of Perfection Fresh Qukes® and turned them into three sensational (and very different) bento lunch boxes that kids can’t help but devour.

We’re pretty sure these lunch boxes are sure to be eaten at school and not returned home uneaten. Now that’ll make a change, hey?!

Qukes® are awesome for keeping lunch boxes fresh and interesting, kids love them! Watch our video below or keep scrolling down for written recipe details!
