I've been packing school lunches now for 6 years - I started when my two oldest were 18 months and going to a little developmental toddler preschool a couple days a week, and now they are almost 8. In that time, I've tried a LOT of different lunch containers and lunch packing strategies. There are a lot of good lunch containers out there, and I would definitely still recommend many of them.Read More
I get lots of questions about the products I use to pack our lunches, so I thought it might be helpful if I gathered up all my favorite items in one post.
I think one of the most important aspects of easy lunch packing is to have products and containers that are consistent and reliable. While it is fun to have a nice variety of accessories, if you want to be quick and efficient in your lunch packing, choosing a reliable set of stuff that you can use day in and day out is going to be your best bet.Read More
My posts about lunches that I pack without sandwiches are always the most popular. I love a good sandwich, but nobody wants to eat that every day!
For your viewing pleasure, I've taken some of my personal favorite no-sandwich lunches and built a little video about them, with some pointers about what to include and some of my favorite tips for how to make them amazing.
All of these lunches are packed in my forever favorite EasyLunchboxes. Enjoy and happy lunch packing!
It's been a while since I've found something new that I'm so excited about that I wanted to shout it from the rooftops - but we have new snack boxes.
You may already know that EasyLunchboxes are my favorite, and most recommended, box for packing school lunches. We've loved these since we started packing lunches, and now there's a new one to choose from.
This is the new EasyLunchboxes snack box! I think it's absolutely perfect. It's the same genius design as the original, easy to use and pack, easy to clean, just in a smaller size.
This is perfect for snacks, but it's also an awesome size lunch box for your little eaters with smaller appetites.
One of the things I love about it is that it has four compartments. This makes it really easy to pack a well balanced lunch or snack. I follow a simple formula for packing: protein + vegetable + fruit + carb. Having a container with four sections makes this easy!
