Packing lunches is a lot of fun and seeing them come home empty is even better! In my experiences over the years working in childcare settings (daycares, preschools, etc.) I have been shocked by the large number of children who come to school with a soft shell lunchbox filled with throw away plastic bags filled with squished sandwiches and broken chips. There's such a better way to provide a lunch that survives the trip to school, cuts down on the cost of throw away packing items, and is better for the environment. The answer is to invest in reusable lunch packing products like hard shell washable containers and fabric velcro washable bags.
The truth is...my husband generally packs the lunches around here. He often forgets to send a fork or spoon, but other than that, he's pretty good at it. I've been watching EasyLunchboxes on Instagram like a true stalker for quite some time now, but never took the plunge in purchasing some for myself. To me, they appeared to be just like the containers you can buy in bulk at the grocery store, and I couldn't see what make them special or set them apart. However, their huge number of dedicated fans and their amazing sales on Amazon.com has always made me curious as to what I was missing out on in the lunch packing world.
In preparing for an upcoming event (Lunchbox Makeover! Check it out HERE on Facebook!) EasyLunchboxes decided to donate SO MANY of their products! I was floored and so excited to share their containers with other families. Plus, they were sending some for me to try out as well. Double win!
I will say...now that I have my hands on them, they are very different than ones I've seen in stores. Here are a few things I'm really liking so far...
- Lid color choices
- Very sturdy (slightly more rigid than others)
- Lids are secure
- Easy for children to open
- Dip containers available for sauces, dressings, etc.
- Stackable in the fridge without falling over
