What's in your lunch box?

When I was a child, watching the anime Bijoujo Senshi Sailor Moon gave me a taste of what bento was. That squared bo containing lots of tasty and good looking food. I gotta had one!
Bento is a common word to describe how Japanese people use to eat when out of home.
In Italy we have a specific word too that describes the lunch box, a name known mainly in the northern part: schiscetta.
Whatever was previously cooked is put in plastic container.
Belgian or french speaking Countries have la boite à tartine that children start to take with them in kindergarten. Bread with Jam or Nutella on a white soft sandwich bread can be an
example for it.
