I don’t know why, as a mom, I can’t get it together when it comes to school lunches. There should be a rule in our household that when you come home from school, the lunch bag comes out of the backpack and onto the counter - but more often than not my 8 year old is pulling it out of his backpack in the morning…and sometimes on a Monday morning (ew, I know). When there’s something in there that should have gone back in the baggie but didn’t, the results can be even more “ew” worthy.
So I’ve been good about using containers instead of bags, and my son has been (relatively) good about not losing them (dishwasher safe labels are the bomb, just saying.)
When I received this LunchBlox Sandwich Kit, I wondered if it was something my son would use. It’s easy to toss bags in his lunch kit but it isn’t very enviro-friendly (or at all!) and even though these pieces stack compactly I wondered if they’d take up too much room in his lunch kit to be worthwhile.
It turns out, they actually are very useful and my son likes them a lot because of the Blue Ice piece that keeps his sandwich cold, which he didn’t realize could happen (mmm warm sandwiches, so reminds me of elementary school, bleyah!)
The LunchBlox Sandwich Kit comes with Snack Containers (.5 cup capacity), 1 Side Container (1.2 cup capacity), 1 Sandwich Container (2.6 cup capacity) and 1 Medium Blue Ice at a SRP of $12.99.
Another item that I was sent is this awesome LunchBlox Salad Kit! I love a salad in a packed lunch or beach picnic but wilted warm lettuce is gross. The Blue Ice addition in this kit is perfect for keeping salads cool and the extra containers provide more than just dressing (think: noodles, nuts, seeds, berries and more, yum!)
The LunchBlox Salad Kit contains 1 Salad Container (5.2 cup capacity), 1 Toppings Tray, 1 Salad Dressing Container (1.8 oz), 1 Medium Blue Ice for a SRP of $12.99 as well.
