Back To School Lunch Box – Review & Give-Away
Congratulations to Susan Budd – Our winner! She said:
“Oh, I LOVE these! It’s like being able to build your own lunchables in a reusable container! For some reason, kids think lunchables are great, but putting stuff in baggies or separate containers just doesn’t get the same response. I love that the end result is not a bunch of crazy containers in the dishwasher with tiny lids falling through the racks and melting on the bottom. I love that these bags will hold the container AND just about anything else you would want with your meal. It’s hard to find lunch boxes just that right size. I would love an aqua one! Truth is, I could use all five colors for my five kids!
Thank you to all who entered. This contest is now closed.
It’s that time of year – when we are getting our kids ready for back to school! Along with the basic school supplies, generally an item on your buying list is a kid’s lunch box for each child. This year, especially, I have seen sooo many choices in this department! There are lots of choices, but they are not always within everyone’s budget – especially when you are also paying for clothes, pencils, backpacks and school registration – it adds up fast doesn’t it? Especially if you have several kiddo’s to buy for. (like me!)
Recently www.EasyLunchBoxes.com contacted me about reviewing their product. We actually already had a couple lunch boxes from other companies, but I told them to go ahead and send them along – as we can always use lunch boxes it seems! Well…. I am happy to say I LOVE this system! (and I am pretty sure you are going to LOVE it too! – it is extremely affordable and easy to use!)
The idea of www.EasyLunchBoxes.com was born out of Kelly Lester’s response to unhealthy school lunch programs. It was her desire (and mine…) to send her 3 kids to school with a nutritious meal, using little to no wasteful packaging. But the Easy Lunchbox System is not just for kids. Adult size meals fit perfectly too.
The Easy Lunchbox System’s design, functionality, and low price has quickly made it a top choice among green lunch box solutions since it came on the market in December, 2009.
Kelly says, “I was like other frustrated moms – I didn’t like throwing together lunches during the morning rush. So much time was wasted sorting through a cabinet of mismatched food containers while trying to pack 15-25 well-balanced lunches per week. I struggled to find something that would help me pack lunches fast, without resorting to the ‘convenience’ of expensive, pre-packaged ‘fast-food.’ Most importantly, I wanted something attractive, eco-friendly, and made of food-safe materials that I didn’t have to wash by hand.
My clever solution to the lunch-packing chore is the simple two piece EasyLunchbox container:
The bottom has three compartments to hold an entree or sandwich and two side dishes. The fitted lid (which comes in 4 colors) covers all three compartments at once. No more squished sandwiches, mismatched plastic container pieces to keep track of (matching up all those bottoms and lids was the thing that drove me nuts!) or wasteful baggies. Fits perfectly inside the roomy EasyLunchbox custom carrying bag. And there is still plenty of room to throw in an extra snack or two, whole fruit, perhaps a thermos of soup, drink and ice block. Flexibility is key, and since so many different things can fit, no matter what menu you choose to include, it packs easily and quickly. It’s amazing how much faster, greener, & easier lunch box packing is with the EasyLunchbox system.”
Supporting the waste-free lunch movement, EasyLunchBoxes.com offers a reusable, superior solution at a much lower price than other companies. (only $13.95 for FOUR Containers, and $7.95 for a Carrying Bag) Great for large families and those on a limited budget.
The containers are FDA approved. No BPA, phthalates, lead, vinyl, or PVC. Safe for dishwasher, freezer, and microwave.
The simple chic design and bright colors of their Cooler Bags can even be personalized! They have included a sturdy grommet in the carrying handle so you can easily attach a pretty key ring, dietary restrictions warning tag, or your choice of any type of handcrafted or store bought “flair.” The Cooler Bags are made of the highest quality 300D Polyester for premium durability and toughness. Vinyl free (PVC free) & lead free, with an FDA compliant PEVA lining.
