Review & Giveaway: EasyLunchBoxes.com - your back to school lunch box, kids lunch box, or Bento lunch box for you! - CLOSED

This giveaway has ended!  Thanks for visiting!
With my oldest in preschool for the second year, we have been looking for healthy alternatives to the lunchables we always packed last year. He will be going to a peanut-free school this year so we needed something that would do double duty for packing healthy and nutriuous foods without too many containers to lose or keep track of and that's when I found EasyLunchBoxes.com!  I am so happy that Kelly was happy to send me a set of 4 containers and a cooler bag to review! When I received my EasyLunchBox (containers and cooler bag), I was surprised that the containers were safe for refrigerator, freezer, microwave & dishwasher (yes, dishwasher - bottom rack too! - my favorite appliance). The cooler bag is oversized, so you can easily fit one container plus a small thermos and have extra room (like for a piece of fresh fruit or an ice pack).

We've been testing these containers out with our lunches for work over the past couples weeks and I will have a hard time sharing once his school starts up in a few weeks!  We also packed up three containers with lunch and snacks for a family trip to the Dallas Zoo (a cooler bag can hold up to three containers at one time)!  Our kids (ages 2 & 4) had no problem opening the containers even though they were sealed tightly shut!

My son will be in school three days this fall, so I am planning to pack his lunches on Sunday night so that they are ready to go each day and we aren't reaching for something last minute on our way out the door! I love the durability of the containers and the ability to pack the containers like Bento Boxes so he will have little bits of things he loves (like fruits and a treat) and a larger entree. We even bought his backpack to match (in red, his favorite color)!

With three containers packed for him, that leaves one container for me - I am so excited! I am hoping that with continued use of these containers (and I'll be buying more) that I will be able to pack healthier lunches with better portion control to help me achieve my weight loss goals this year!

Ready to buy your own? Head on over to EasyLunchBoxes.com and pick up a set of 4 containers and a cooler bag! You'll definitely want the cooler bag too! It's a little larger than most, but it perfectly holds the containers and additional goodies (like a thermos or fresh fruit)!

Kelly has graciously offered to send and EasyLunchBox (a cooler (in the winner's color choice) and a set of four containers) to one winner!

Easylunchboxes.com was born out of Kelly’s innate ability to do things efficiently while on a shoestring budget, and her desire to send her daughters to school with simple, healthy food, with little to no extra packaging or ingredients.

I like that their website links up to other healthy kid-approved lunches to try! What a great combo!

I like the idea of making your own yogurt sundae. I could see my daughter enjoying that!

This tip I would never have thought of:

Instead of an ice block, place a frozen juice box or water bottle in the lunchbag. It’ll keep the food chilled and will be thawed by lunchtime.

There are so many great pictures of ideas for lunches that are so simple and I never would've thought of on my own. I especially like the tip on how to use a piece of wax paper so that things don't run from one compartment to the other!

So I LOVE this product. I have only bought one set, and with my husband being the only one to take them to work during the summer (I am a teacher) they have disappeared! I would love to have another set.

I have joined with google friend connect. Liked you on facebook, liked easy lunches on facebook.
