Review and Giveaway: Easy Lunchboxes for Back to School

Welcome to Day 4 of Grand Giveaways Back-to-School Week!

With my picky eaters starting school this fall, I have given much thought to what I’ll be packing them for their lunches.   There are certainly a lot of kids lunchboxes on store shelves, but I haven’t seen anything quite like the Easy Lunchboxes system.

Easy Lunchboxes allow you to pack fast and healthy lunches with single-lid, 3-compartment, bento-style plastic food containers.  These reusable lunch containers are the green alternative to a sack lunch, and I’m all for being green!

I’ve joked many times about my kitchen being like a restaurant because I have to make different meals to suit my picky eaters’ varied tastes.  What I love about Easy Lunchboxes are the different colored lids for the containers, that way I can keep track of who gets what.

The containers are great for adults, too!  I can pack my husband’s lunch and also store leftovers.  The containers are stackable so they don’t take up much room.

Interested in purchasing an an Easy Lunchboxes system for yourself or your kids? A 4-Container set costs $13.95 and the cooler bags are $7.95.  FREE SHIPPING if you spend $50!  Click here to go shopping.

    Remove odors from a lunch bag by placing inside, a plate w/a slice of bread that has been soaked in white distilled vinegar. Zip and leave overnight. Our reusable lunch bags can be wiped clean with a damp or soapy cloth, inside or out. Even put them in the washing machine (cold water/’delicates” soap/gentle cycle/air dry). They come out great!
