bento mummies,
my query is, will these characters, nice decor withstand the journey to school all the way until recess? :?

Hmm.. I usually do not have time to really decorate the bento, but if u use the correct technique to pack the lunchbox tight, it will last quite well.

I need to pack lunch for my preschoolers everyday, n they prefer to have their food packed nicely.. what I hear from the teachers, the food designs do last ok.

Yes it does last because the food is a bit sticky, so it holds it's shape well. There are these cute dividers, boxes etc from Daiso - they do the trick too.

if u pack very tightly and use the right size box, the design should last. i've also gotten a few of the small "compartments" from daiso but have yet to use them since no time to cook nowadays.
