FOUND: Kid Lunch Solution

In the interest of spreading the news about all time- and sanity-saving household solutions, I wanted to share my latest discovery: Easy Lunch Boxes. Packing healthy lunches for somewhere between 2 and 5 Folsoms every night was just one more task at the end of a long day, and the management consultant in me was looking for efficiency in this repeatable process.

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.

What are some of your favorite lunch packing strategies? What's easy, fast and loved by your kids at the lunch table? Share with the crowd!
