My Favorite Lunch Box and a GIVEAWAY!

Monday August 1, 2011

GIVEAWAY IS NOW OVER — Congrats to #62 – Lindsey!

It’s August 1st, do you know where your child’s lunchbox is?

School doesn’t start for another month in my area, but I know many kids will be heading back to school soon, which means moms will be packing school lunches.   Last summer, I was searching for the perfect bento style lunchbox, and a year later I am still satisfied with my choice, Easy Lunchboxes.

Here’s why I Love ELB:

Practical — The size of the containers is roomy enough to easily hold a lunch, but not so big that it overwhelms my dishwasher.   The compartments keep things divided, but are large enough to offer flexibility in what they hold.

They are also easy enough for little hands to open — my kindergartner and preschooler can open them by themselves.

Eco-Safe — the containers and cooler bags are free icky chemicals — no BPA, PVA, phthalates, or vinyl.   They make it easy to pack waste free lunches.

Economical — the price has always been great, but now you can buy ELB on and take advantage of their free shipping on orders over $25!

Mom-Owned — I really like that ELB is a small business created and run by a mom entrepreneuer.  Kelly Lester is super nice and has clearly gone all out to make a well designed product.   I’d much rather give her my business than buy some cheap knock-off at W@lm@rt.

Also — the Easy Lunchbox website is a treasure trove of lunch packing information.   Check out the Neat Ideas section — she has links to tons of blogs with recipe ideas,  a gorgeous photo gallery of lunches packed in ELBs, lots of great lunch packing tips and more.

Is there anything I don’t love?

Honestly, yes.  I’ve found the cooler bags are too large for my kids backpack, so I put the container sets in a smaller sized lunch bag I found at Tar-jay.  But, the larger sized cooler bag is perfect for outings with the kids.   It can hold three containers and a thin brick-sized cold pack.   When we went to the beach last summer, it worked great for taking our snacks.

I was able to double up two sandwiches in two containers and fit enough for all 5 of us to eat.

So, I am pleased to say it was a great purchase last year and we will continue to use Easy Lunchboxes into the coming school year.  I hope that you love Easy Lunchboxes as well, and so, I am excited to host a giveaway!

    LOVE the Easy Lunchboxes! My daughters used them for the entire school year last year. I even sneak them for my own lunches to bring to work. The containers are great for keeping the foods separate.

    Tanya says:

    I love that it is one container with separated compartments. My son will only have to open one lid compared to the multiple ones I pack him now.

    I love the idea of sandwiches that won’t get squished …. those reusable lunch bags are a great idea but the sandwiches always end up messy!

    I love our Easy Lunch Boxes! Everyone who sees them wants to know where we got them. It saves so much time when packing lunch and my daughters prefer their “homemade lunch@bles” because they can quickly remove the lid and get to eating. They seem to have more time to eat lunch now. And we really do try to make healthier versions of those pre-packaged lunchables. I subscribed to EasyLunchboxes Channel. Thank you!

    I love that it is only one container to wash!

  21. 71

    I like that that there are 3 separate compartments in one container – perfect for both my picky eaters who don’t like their foods to touch, and busy me who doesn’t want to wash multiple containers per child.

    I love easy lunchboxes because i don’t have to take apart a bunch of different containers and because they are stackable. They don’t take up much space.

    Chemical-free and environmentally friendly lunches…perfect!

    Amy says:

    I love the fact that all I need is one container for each lunch. It really saves space in my cabinets & no matching lids to containers. I also like the fact that there are enough colors in the lunch bags so that each one of my children can have their own color.

    i love that the containers are stackable and have different colored lids – i can color-code for each person, as i have a whole crew of picky eaters who all like different things.
