The kids are going to love this Banana Sushi Bento Box! It’s a fun way to make a quick and easy lunch with no cooking required, at all. Be sure to check out the rest of my Bento Lunch Ideas for Kids as well!
Enjoying a sush roll with faux sushi just adds to the fun of eating it! The kids literally ask for this banana wrap and crave it, and I call that a win! This sushi roll is perfect for a bento box and the lunch box, too. The next time you want to pack something unique and yummy for your little one’s lunch, this is it!
Since you just need some peanut butter to be the star of the show, you can have fun adding in some other tasty side dish items in addition to this sushi for kids. Fresh fruit and baby carrots are always a hit of ours.
You can also add in a pudding, some string cheese, Goldfish crackers or pretzels as well. The sky is really the limit on what you can use and add to the bento box.

Boxed Lunch Ingredients:
You can find a printable recipe with instructions and ingredients below, but I like to show the ingredients list with (affiliate) links to help you see what we used for this box.
- Peanut butter
We may not have included all ingredients above, like pantry staples. So be sure to reference the entire recipe card below!
Can you use other nut butters besides peanut butter?
You sure can! Almond butter is great and cashew butter would be perfect, too! If you want to switch up the type of peanut butter used, switch it up.
It’s a simple and easy way to create a lunch that you can change up the flavor. You can make it using a different jam or jelly, too. Have fun and change up each and every roll!
Important Tips for this Bento Box Idea:
I would recommend making this fresh so that the jelly doesn’t make the tortilla soggy. You can also help to prevent that by putting a good layer of peanut butter between the jelly and the tortilla.
If you’re worried about the banana browning, you can add a little bit of lemon juice on top of the banana as well.
