I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rubbermaid. I received product samples to facilitate my review, as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
With school lunch prices on the rise and quality being questioned more often, many parents are opting for packing their child's lunch. Three of my five kids pack their lunches on a daily basis, and it's quite the challenge to come up with a variety of lunches that are appealing and easy to prepare.
Over the years, I've learned to keep lunchtime simple and easy by relying on kid-friendly staples that can easily be mixed and matched to keep lunchtime fresh and fun. LunchBlox Kits by Rubbermaid help make packing lunches easy with modular food storage containers that snap together in multiple configurations. I love that they make creating healthy portions easy (each container is labeled with the measurements), and the reusable Blue Ice ice pack keeps everything cold until lunchtime.
Several years ago, we invested in five of the LunchBlox Sandwich Kits. Well, maybe invested isn't quite the right word -- with prices starting at around $10.99, they're very reasonably priced, especially considering their durability. Our containers and ice packs are still in excellent condition and in use today!
I can honestly say we've never experienced a leakage issue. The lids fit securely and seal perfectly -- something I can't say for other lunch kits we've tried in the past. And the measurements on the side of each container are so convenient!
Here are a few examples of meals we've packed recently:
crackers, mozzarella cheese & pepperoni with green grapes and pretzel sticks -- my kids love this less messy take on pizza!
ham & Swiss sandwich with peanut butter celery, fresh strawberries and Annie's Cheddar Bunnies crackers -- cutting a classic ham & Swiss sandwich with a cookie cutter makes lunch more interesting!
homemade Uncrustables with popcorn, fresh blueberries and vanilla yogurt -- making your own sealed peanut butter & jelly sandwiches saves loads of money over store bought versions!
fruit kabobs with fruit dip, string cheese, and graham crackers -- these are just strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and bananas on cocktail straws, a safer alternative to sharp skewers!
turkey & cheddar pinwheels with applesauce, almonds and organic fruit snacks -- creating pinwheel "sandwiches" with tortillas will bring a smile to your child's face!
Many of these lunch components can be packaged up into the LunchBlox containers on Sunday evening to make lunch prep throughout the week a snap, allowing you to streamline your mornings while saving money, as well. P.S. LunchBlox Kits are pretty handy for adults, too -- simple and easy portion control!
