Can you prepare bento the night before?

Yes, you can prepare a bento the night before! Preparing your bento boxes the night before can save you time and stress in the morning.

Being able to assemble and pack your lunch the night before means you don’t have to rush to make something in the morning or spend time deciding what to pack.

Some ingredients taste better after sitting in the fridge overnight, allowing the flavors to meld together. Just be sure to properly store your bento in an airtight container in the fridge to keep it fresh.

With some preparation, you can enjoy a delicious and nutritious bento for lunch the next day without any extra hassle.
