A Post About Lunch Boxes...Yup...Lunch Boxes!
My favorite purchase I made last school year were these Easy Lunch Boxes. I was looking for a bento style lunch box that I could use to help put healthy lunches together (it is a goal of mine...sigh!). In my search I found these. I had a gift certificate to Amazon so I purchased a set...along with the little "mini dipper" containers (a friend gave me her silicon cupcake holders that she doesn't use..so I pretty much have everything in the first picture above).
I love love love them (and that is saying a lot for me to wax poetic about lunch containers!). I even wrote a review on Amazon (which I don't normally do).
What makes them different from other compartment containers? They are deeper...so wraps, salads, cut up anything fit in easily (right now I have a salad in mine for tomorrow with dressing and cut up fruit). They don't warp in the dishwasher at all. I like having all the compartment options (I'm a snacker so that works for me). The "mini dippers" fit in the box so no need to keep salad dressing or hummus in something separate from your lunch. They are sturdy (no flimsy plastic). They don't dye red when you are putting in leftover spaghetti AND they have a ton of lunch ideas on their website.
I did not buy the lunch bag because I already carry enough bags and this container fits into one of my bags I carry on a daily basis.
I thought I would pass on in case anyone was looking for an awesome lunch box container (I did not get any product for free this is a genuine "I love it" post...not that I am against getting anything for free :).
I started this blog many years ago as a classroom science teacher with the express purpose of sharing notebooking ideas with other educators. I have since moved into a technology coach position within our district so this site has morphed into a general teaching blog. Basically anything that I see or do in schools that I think is pretty cool gets highlighted here. If you are visiting to find notebooking information please look at my earlier posts. I have tried to label all my posts so information is easier to find...so, when in doubt look at the labels. As always, if you have any question please feel free to email me and I will do my best to help!
