Easy Lunchboxes ~ Review

image

You might have read the title of the post and thought ~ “Ummmm…doesn’t she remember that she homeschools? Lunchboxes are for school, aren’t they?”

Might I just say ~ absolutely not!

I saw Easy Lunchboxes online and was immediately intrigued. The little organizational part of my brain loved that the eco-friendly lunchbox has three separate compartments {for those picky kiddos who shudder at the thought of food touching other food} and the lid seals the individual compartments.

Genius, I tell you.

Kids Lunch Boxes

I found out about them right before we were heading out for vacation, so my parents ordered a set and another set was shipped to me {one via UPS and one via USPS}. The set from the postal service arrived the day before we left on our trip, so I quickly washed them, packed them and took them along on our vacation.

They have been wonderful and we used them during our vacation when we went on day trips and again on the return trip home for our lunches {so we could save a little money not eating out}. The kids loved that they each had their own color {the set of 4 containers have lids in red, orange, blue and green} and I love that they were easy to clean up ~ top rack of the dishwasher and they are done! Did I mention that they stack inside each other for easy storage when you aren’t using them {bonus points here!!}.

I am so excited about using these during the school year too!! While the kids are getting ready for school time in the morning, I can pack their lunches quickly and have them waiting in the fridge when our school is finished for the morning ~ taking a lot of the lunchtime stress off from me! On our co-op days when we tend to get home much later than our normal lunch time, I can pack a lunch to take along instead without it all getting squished in a big bag.

While I know that there are other containers available in stores ~ I am SOLD on these!! They are sturdy {not a flimsy plastic} and if you have any doubts, check out this comparison post from the Easy LunchBox blog showing the difference between the two containers. The Easy LunchBox containers will last you for a long time ~ saving you both time and money. :)

Product Specifics

The Easy LunchBox containers {$13.95/set of 4} have four different-colored lids and they are refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher {top rack}, and freezer safe. The containers and lids are made of “non-toxic, food-safe, polypropylene (PP or plastic #5). These are the top-choice safe food containers if you’re looking for BPA-free lunch boxes, phthalate-free lunch boxes and non-toxic lunch boxes.”  They are not leakproof, but each container has three compartments and the lid covers them very well {we had a little dip in one of ours with no problem}.

The insulated cooler bags {$7.95/each} come in five different colors and three of the lunch containers will fit inside ~ or one container with a drink and plenty of extra room for additional snacks. They are made of the “highest quality 300D Polyester for premium durability and toughness, are vinyl free (PVC free) & lead free, with an FDA compliant PEVA lining.”

See the Easy LunchBoxes FAQ page for specific size and additional information.
