Stressed out by the Bento Box-type solution (all those little mismatched tops and bottoms! Really? My kids' lunches need to be healthy AND pretty? Who has time for sandwiches with teeny little faces from flax seed on top?) so I looked for alternatives. I like these because they're one solid piece and top, go in the dishwasher, microwave and freezer and are $13.95 for 4. Of course I bought 3 sets.
Now I make all the kid lunches on Sunday night and each boy is responsible for tossing it in his lunch bag along with a thermos of water and one snack from the snack basket. An added plus is that it works really well (hello, portion control!) for grown-up lunches from leftovers.
