Rubbermaid Lunchblox Lunch Kit

It’s no secret that I love the Rubbermaid Lunchblox Lunch kits. I purchased 2 sets for each of my kids in September and I haven’t looked back. It has easily become one of my favourite lunch container sets to pack for my kids. I love the bright colours, I love the easy-open lids, I love the stackability and portability, I love the included ice pack, and I love the sizes of the different containers for a perfectly-portioned lunch. For all these reasons, this lunch container set has not only become a favourite of mine, but it’s a favourite of my kids too.



These Rubbermaid LunchBlox kits come in two different colour sets – a blue set and a pink set. Pictured is the pink set.



The containers stack and snap together easily, and the lids are easy enough for my kids to take on and off, but also secure enough to keep everything tightly inside. The containers are the perfect size for a healthy portioned lunch and the sizes are compatible with many popular foods that kids and adults love. LunchBlox containers have a built-in blue ice pack that keeps my kids lunches perfectly cooled until it’s ready to eat. It snaps right between the containers for awesome portability. These containers are a breeze to clean because they are dishwasher safe, and they are also microwave and freezer safe too.


I love to pack my kids fun school lunches. They need to be healthy, and include a little bit of fun. It doesn’t have to hard or extravagant and it certainly doesn’t need to take a lot of time. Just a tiny element can take a school lunch from ordinary to extraordinary in seconds. Above is a lunch I packed for my daughter in her Rubbermaid Lunchblox Lunch Kit. In the large container she had a ham, lettuce and cheese sandwich. I used a star cookie cutter I had to cut a star out of the top piece of bread to show the cheese underneath. So simple, but super cute. The other two containers held sliced mini cucumbers with baby carrots, and a fruit salad with fresh blueberries, raspberries and kiwi.

Definitely try out the Rubbermaid LunchBlox Lunch kits for yourself. It has made the task of packing school lunches daily for my kids so much easier – which is any busy parents dream come true!

Looking for more inspiration?? I have many more lunch examples packed in Rubbermaid LunchBlox Lunch Kits under the “Bento Boxes” tab in my main menu!

this week in bento boxes

We’ve been busy doing Christmas-y things all weekend. The tree is up, the decorations are out, and we even participated in the Santa Claus parade last night. The kids are starting to get REALLY excited and we still have over a month to go! I think I’ll start some Winter/Christmas themed bento boxes in the near future, but for now, just some easy and fun lunches….



Here’s a couple matchy fun bentos for my cute kiddies in their Rubbermaid lunchblox lunch kits. In the main container, they each had a turkey and lettuce sandwich with a keroppi the frog and chococat decoration. The smaller containers held flower-cut cucumbers with a cute pick, a silicone muffin cup with sliced cheesestring and some alphabet pretzels.



And here’s a couple easy lunches packed in their yumboxes. They had some ham lunch meat in the protein section, some alphabet pretzels in the grain section, some crinkle cut cucumbers with a cute pick in the veggie section, a berry fruit salad with raspberries, blueberries and blackberries in the fruit section, and a cheesestring in the dairy section. They had some leftover smarties from Halloween in the middle section.

Here are the supplies I used to make these lunches (contains affiliate links):
