Easy Lunches with Easy Lunchboxes – Review and Giveaway

Living in an RV has switched a lot of my problems around.

Like a lot of people, I used to have a cupboard with WAY too many plastic storage containers of all shapes and sizes. I had a monumental investment in expensive Tupperware containers, a whole host of the semi-disposable containers (a la Ziploc and GladLock), and even a smattering of recycled favorites (I’m partial to the larger size Boston Market side dish containers).

So when I needed a container, I would open the cupboard, easily select precisely the size and shape needed, and grab its matching lid.

Er, not.

The “overwhelm” factor is gone here in the RV, with such limited cupboard space. I had to pick and choose carefully what to bring.

Now, naturally, it is easier to find a matching lid (although not as easy as you’d think!). The problems here are more related to things like not having the size you need, since the *one* container that size is invariably in the fridge with leftover peas in it.

Naturally, I was very interested to learn about Easy Lunchboxes. Kelly was a mom of three in a similar bind – but instead of just wishing for a better solution, she designed one!

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 in a snap. No more 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’ and easier lunch box packing is with the EasyLunchbox system.

It’s a great idea, and right in line with the trendy “bento box” style lunch packing that I keep reading about. Plus, it’s microwave and dishwasher safe.

And since anyone reading this blog is likely to ask: Plastic safety?

The answer is a resounding YES!

We are very proud of our products’ safety ratings. We have ensured that all the materials used in our containers and bags are food and child safe and even pass strict FDA requirements! Easylunchbox products contain NO Lead, Vinyl, PVC, Phthalates, or Bisphenol A (BPA).

Resuable. Inexpensive. Convenient. Green. Cute.

One feature that I really enjoyed is that the Easy Lunch Box is easy for kids to handle. Have you ever watched a two year old try to open a tightly sealed Tupperware container? (Heck, sometimes I have trouble!)

Jewel is going through a “playing school” phase right now, so she immediately claimed the Easy Lunchbox bag as hers – good thing it was purple! I packed a lunch for her and R.T., and they went outside and had a picnic.

I packed a tray for each of them, with a sandwich, grapes, and a few marshmallows for a treat. Both trays fit nicely into the bag, and there was still enough room that I could have slipped in an ice pack if it had been needed.

I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience I had with Easy Lunchboxes. Kelly was friendly and helpful in our email exchanges. The products are totally professionally manufactured and packaged (this isn’t a “homemade” experience). The containers were sturdy, fit together well, and opened easily. All in all, I give EasyLunchboxes highest marks for convenience, frugality, quality, ease of use, and appearance.

My only caveat is that “suitable for adults and children” may be a little broad. My teenage son would certainly not be satisfied with what could be packed in one container. You would need to make sure you did fill up the back with an additional Thermos of soup, piece of fruit, etc.

I think I may need another set…
