It’s day 2 of my bento week here at Meet the Dubiens. Today I wanted to do a little review of a bento box that I recently bought this Summer and I love. No, I wasn’t given these for free, nor am I being paid for this review. I bought these boxes with my own hard-earned money, loved them, and wanted to share them with you guys.
I bought these Rubbermaid LunchBlox kits this Summer from Amazon and have been using them all Summer for the kiddos. I thought I would try them out because they are bright and colourful (which I love), looked like they hold a decent amount of food, and I loved the flat ice pack which clicked right into the lunch containers.
I wasn’t disappointed when I received them! I bought 2 sets of the pink/green/purple, and 2 sets of the blue/green/orange. I like having 2 sets for each kid so that 1 set can be in the dishwasher and I still have an extra to pack. This way I’m not washing their lunch containers as soon as they get home so that I can use them again. I also bought some smaller containers that are in the LunchBlox line and also clip into these containers. You can find the smaller containers HERE
These containers are BPA free, dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe. Sweet.
Each set comes with a larger container that holds a full sandwich – or salad or whatever and 2 small containers which are great for fruit, veggies, crackers and cheese, yogurt, you name it. If you buy the even smaller snack containers you can use 1 rectangle container and 2 small square containers. They all snap into an ice pack which sits in the middle between the boxes to keep everything cool.
The containers are leakproof (although I probably wouldn’t put liquid in them, they transport yogurt and such just fine!), easy to pack and easy for the kids to open and close. They fit in tall lunch bags, standing upright.
Here are a few of the smaller containers filled with snacks for the day!
The possibilities are endless, the colours are interchangeable and I can tell that this will be my go-to bento box this year. They hold enough food to last my kids throughout their lunch and snack breaks, and with the snap-on ice pack, I can ensure their lunch will stay fresh all day long.
LOVE IT! If you try them, I hope you like them as much as I do!
Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches:
