Mama Recharged Lunchbox Favourites

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Are you on the hunt for the perfect lunchbox for your children? I am! I did my research so I thought I’d share that with you.

Planetbox Rover

Pro:

  • my favourite lunchbox!
  • will last you years (might be the only lunch box you’ll need)
  • small compartments are great for variety and visually appealing
  • seals well (however liquids could transfer from compartments if tossed around)

 

Con:

  • expensive!!
  • liquids could transfer from compartments if tossed around
  • freezer pack and lunch bag is sold separately (and is expensive)

Bentgo Lunchbox

Pro:

  • leak proof. Even liquids won’t transfer between compartments
  • cheaper than most other bento boxes
  • comes in different colours
  • great size and nice compartment sizes

Con:

  • more expensive than walmart lunch kits

LUNCHBOX TIPS AND TRICKS

Turn any container into a bento box style kit by using silicone liners.

Save your apple sauce cups or fruit cups and use them as a dip, cracker or topping holder with a wide mouth mason jar -however glass is likely not the best idea to send to school 😉 Find some great ideas here using the jar/cup combo.
