Our Favorite Lunchbox Container

We packed all these lunches in our EasyLunchBoxes containers that we’ve been using continuously for 7 years! We’ve tried many lunchbox systems, but this one’s our favorite for cool foods. In the pack of 4, we’ve only had 1 crack on us. Not bad when we’ve got 2 kids using these about every other day for 7 years!

There’s only 1 lid to manage and you see all your food at once. Just be careful with watery foods like yogurt or applesauce as the lid is not waterproof. When I’ve sent in those for lunch, I’d use a small piece of Glad Press’n Seal Sealable Plastic Wrap to seal that one compartment before placing the lid on. Works perfectly! I also put a rubberband around the entire lid as a safety precaution.

If you ever visit your kids at school during lunchtime, you’ll know that time is of the essence. They have 20-30 minutes to eat and chat it up with their friends. And I kid you not, that most kids are so busy talking, that they’re NOT eating! When the lunch duty gives the 5 minute warning, that’s when there’s a mad scramble to finish up their lunch.

So there’s no time to open up multiple containers nor look at the contents of each one. We’ve found that opening up one lid and having everything visible in one tada moment works best.

We can’t live without our EasyLunchBoxes containers!
