Easy LunchBox {Review & Giveaway}

By April 20, 2010Reviews

This giveaway is now closed.

I am a firm believer that parents design the best products for families and I am happy to report that the Easy LunchBox system was  created by a mom and it rocks!  Kelly Lester is the mother of 3 behind this product and I am so glad she made these fabulous lunchboxes.  She asked herself  “what would other parents want” and she hit the nail on the head.  I have had this Easy LunchBox set for a month and have used it almost every day for school lunch, for picnics in the park and for snacks on a car trip. Ready, Set, Go is right! 

A Few Key Facts

These lunchboxes makes packing lunches easy.

Food separation is key for my kids as they don’t like to eat things that are touching.  Lucky me, I know.  Easy LunchBoxes save the day.  And hey, I don’t like a soggy sandwich either, so I get it.

I pack lunches for Sophia and Miles every day of the week and because they are so young, I need to pack different items for each of them.   There are 3 compartment sizes here so I can mix and match a whole slew of different items.

We Like Different Things

The compartments are sized to fit both kids and grown ups.  I like taking my own lunch in these boxes because they hold a whole sandwich, a small salad and some dressing.  They will also hold the small fruit or applesauce or drinkable yogurts that we sometimes use.

I have been able to put liquids in the compartments without a problem and this saves money!  Applesauce, Ranch dressing, yogurt, and canned fruit have all been a part of my lunches and I have never had a leak.  This thing works better than my sippy cups. 

The lunch bags can fit 2 containers and my ice pack or 1 container and a thermos or sippy cup and an apple or banana or whatever you wish.  On the weekends we put containers in one bag and have an extra bag that we put drinks in.  It works really well.

These lunch bags are washable.  Thank God because my sippy cups have leaked.  And the chocolate Easter bunnies that were left in the bags after the egg hunt at school melted.  I threw them in the wash and they look like new!

I have not used my myriad of tiny Tupperware containers that my kids could not open anyway since I received this set.  Hallelujah.

My kids can open these themselves without any accidents and they are almost 2 and  3 1/2.  Props to Kelly.  One less thing I have to do.  They can also figure out which way the lid goes on and can put it back in the lunch bag themselves and zip it.  Can I get a woot woot?

Our pre-school teachers have commented on how easy it is for the kids to eat their own lunch without spills.  Unlike the  tiny Tupperware containers this is a stable place for food.  It does not tip over.  The compartments are big enough for  a spoon to easily get the yogurt out.   My little one’s little hands do not have to try to hold a container and a spoon to eat and inevitably have something tip over.  I love this feature.  It helps them to be more independent.

 The Easy LunchBox containers are FDA compliant and are made of non-toxic, food-safe polypropylene (PP or plastic #5). They are very high quality and are BPA-free, phthalate-free, and non-toxic. 

These containers are safe for refrigerator, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher.

We all want to be greener.  Say bye bye to all those plastic bags!

This system saves space in your cupboards or drawers.

Short on Space - No Problem!

The price is right!  The Easy LunchBox system comes with 4 containers and lids.  Then you choose a lunch bag in one of 5 cool colors! The containers are $13.95 and the lunch bags are only $7.95.  We have been fine with 2 kids having 1 set of containers and 2 lunch bags but when Violet starts eating I will definitely be adding another set of containers! 

Great Choice - Great Price

Overall

The Easy LunchBox gets my Mommy Words Woo Hoo for both grown-ups and kids.  It is simple, affordable, practical and eco-friendly!  You can even find tons of great lunch suggestions on Kelly’s site!  Great job Kelly!  This mom loves your lunch boxes!
