I don’t often pack a lunch because I just don’t like the hassle and I don’t like to eat soggy sandwiches. Of course, with two children, baseball season, field trips, a new diet and no money; I have had to readjust my wishes and start packing lunch whenever possible. Last week I took the boys and some friends to the zoo and I packed a lunch. Luckily I had recently received some of these new LunchBots that are perfect for packing lunches.
The LunchBots Unois the perfect size for a sandwich or for a good portion salad or some other main meal. Since I still don’t want to eat a soggy sandwich I put four slices of bread in mine. The four slices fit well but I’m not sure that you could get two sandwich’s in there. I pre-mixed some peanut butter and jelly and had that ready to make the sandwiches once we got to our lunch destination.
The LunchBots Duo is great for taking things such as vegetables and dip or to pre-separate crackers or cookies for two children. I used mine to put exactly sixteen wheat thins in each side so I could have them ready for my snack without having to count as I ate. It came in very handy and the size is great.
Both of the LunchBotsare the perfect size to fit int he pocket on the front of my cooler. I believe I can fit three of them in there. Compared with my usual plastic containers I very impressed. The LunchBots accept the cold in the insulated pocket without having to be in the ice. That will come in very handy for veggies and fruit when I want to carry those without worrying about the water seeping in. I also like that the metal containers are a healthier choice for the entire family. Plastics have recently come into focus as possibly being dangerous due to chemicals that my leach into your food products. You can read more about the potential danger of plasticsat the LunchBots website.
The Uno comes with a nice metal blue lid and the duo comes with an orange metal lid. The lids will fit on either of the containers which will be nice when I get another set so I can have one color for each child. These containers can be purchased here for just $14.99 each.
