The Bento Box lunchbox craze doesn’t look like going away any time soon!
However the Japanese containers - which come with mini compartments for all your different snacks - can cost up to $100, with people paying top dollar for the authentic versions.
But this Kmart hack means you don’t have to pay big money for your own Bento Box - with one $1.50 product giving you the same effect.
The clever trick involves inserting these jumbo ice cube trays - available at Kmart - into standard $2.50 containers, creating the same effect. Genius!
The fabulous hack is the creation of Kmart Mums Australia member Amanda, who took to the awesome Facebook group to share her idea (pictured above).
She reveals: ‘I hacked a Kmart bento box from the ice cube tray & 600ml container 😃 Total cost $4.50!
She adds: ‘I trimmed the sides of the ice cube tray. And the compartment dividers touch the lid perfectly.’
Hundreds of fellow mums have followed Amanda’s lead to create the DIY Bento Boxes, meaning they can create personalised for their kids.
‘This is the best!’ said one. Added another: ‘This is the best post !!!

Added one more: ‘I'm doing this today!!! I have been on the hunt for a good toddler bento box for ages!’
