Why are some Japanese preschools banning awesome, adorable character bento?

Considering how much Japan loves food and cute things, it’s no surprise that the country is in the middle of a chara-ben boom. Chara-ben, bento boxed lunches with their contents arranged like popular characters such as Hello Kitty and Doraemon, are a hit with adults and children alike, as parents seem to be having as much fun making them as their kids are eating them.

But not everyone loves this trend of culinary creativity, though, as some preschools and day care centers have started banning chara-ben.

Wow.. that’s unfortunate. I know that it’s a TON of work. I would bet some kids are feeling left out bec their parents are doing it….. and it’s disrupting the flow of the day bec of the “inequality of lunches” . Too bad that this is becoming a form of competition

Hi Pamela,
Wouldn’t want to have too much fun. Most of the characters in that dish are from Hayao Miyazaki’s feature films. Fantastic stuff.

It might be too much pressure on the non artistic lunch maker, as it seems. I wish I had a lunch like that.
