Back To School Lunch Boxes-EasyLunchBoxes.com Review & Giveaway

Bento Lunch Boxesimage

These single-lid, 3-compartment, bento-style plastic food containers are amazing. It has room for a sandwich or hamburger or whatever bigger item you may need to stick in there. It also has 2 smaller compartments that you can stick sides or condiments in.

The reason I loved using this is because I usually use a sandwich shaped box and then have to search high and low for something to stick the smaller items in. With this, I didn’t have to and it fit perfectly inside the cooler bag with room for a drink.

They have different colors of lunchbox coolers and the containers to choose from.

We actually took these with us to the park. We had a cook-out and then walked 3 miles down a nature trail. Kids and paper plates just don’t mix. They would dump it or let the food slide off their plate. With these 3 compartment plastic containers, we had room for our cheeseburgers and chips without any mess.

I love it and it is so eco-friendly. A good way to say good-bye to paper bags that you have to throw away. Plus much more convenient and easy to make lunches.

It is easy to clean which is a big plus. It isn’t hard to get into the smaller compartments. It doesn’t get a filmy look to it and everything comes off it so easily.

I love it because it is mom made to be a more healthy choice to school lunches (which my kids aren’t old enough to eat) but I remember when I was in school, and it isn’t something I would WANT to eat everyday. I would have loved to pack my own lunch so that I could enjoy whatever I wanted instead of eating what they serve you.

Adam likes it because he doesn’t have to search for bowls to put his stuff in for work. He can just grab the container, put his lunch in it and go to work. The lunch bag is a cooler, so he didn’t have to worry about his lunch spoiling while he was in the hot sun all day with no where to stick his bag.

    Mornings spent in chaos making breakfast, beds, & lunch boxes?  
    The EasyLunchbox system makes it simple to organize, and quickly pack healthy lunches without wasting money, time, paper or plastic.
    Born out of my response to unhealthy school lunch programs, EasyLunchboxes.com started from the desire to send my 3 kids to school with a nutritious meal, using little to no wasteful packaging. But the EasyLunchbox System is not just for kids. Adult size meals fit perfectly too.

    The EasyLunchbox 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. Named a 'top 5 Eco-Friendly Mommy Must Have" by Parents Ask, the EasyLunchbox System has been rated TOP CHOICE by many independent reviewers. Read their reviews HERE .

    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.
    Great for large families and those on a limited budget.
