Easy Lunchboxes: The Quick Easy Way to Pack and Send Lunch

Brown bags, plastic lunch boxes, metal lunch boxes, nylon lunch bags, Tupperware, plastic baggies, reusable baggies, there are tons of different ways to pack a lunch and send it to school with your child or to work with your spouse or for yourself.   Most of these involve using smaller several bags or containers so there can be a variety of foods to eat.  Easy Lunchboxes has the perfect solution!
Created by a mom who wanted a quick, economical way to pack and send healthy lunches with her daughters to school with little or no extra packaging or ingredients, Easy Lunchboxes are exactly what their name suggests, easy lunchboxes.

The Easy Lunchboxes System

There are essentially three different products available including the Easy Lunchboxes Compartmentalized Food Storage Containers, the Lunch Bag Coolers, and the Mini Dippers (dip and sauce containers) – all of which together to form the Easy Lunchbox System.  What is the Easy Lunchbox System, you ask?  It is basically an easy-to pack lunchbox using the Food Storage Containers and the Mini Dippers to store the food, and then the entire thing fits perfectly into the handy cooler bag. Check it out:

Easy Lunchboxes Compartmentalized Food Storage Containers

The Easy Lunchboxes Compartmentalized Food Storage Containers are made of non-toxic, food-safe BPA-free polypropylene, and are free of lead, vinyl, PVC, and phthalates.  Each one comes with a colorful, easy-to-remove lid, and they are refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher and microwave safe!  They measure 9.38” x 6.1” x 2” and have three separate compartments, one large and two smaller, each of which are designed to provide the perfect serving size for a balanced, healthy meal.
The largest compartment is 2.5 cups, and is the perfect size for a sandwich or small salad.  The second smallest compartment holds 3/4 cup, and the smallest holds 1/2 cup, and both are the perfect size for fruits, veggies, chips and other sides.
Four containers come in one set and are designed to where they nest perfectly inside one another without the lids on, and stack perfectly together with lids.  Best of all, these storage containers fit perfectly into the Easy Lunchboxes Lunch Bag Coolers!
Since the lids are designed to be easy for a child to open, this means that while they fit, they are not extremely tight, so if you turn it upside down with food in it and shake, there is a chance the lid will come off, so be sure to keep them upright.  Likewise, they are not leak proof, so do not put any liquids or very wet foods in them.  There is extra room inside the Lunch Bag Coolers specifically for this reason, that way you can add a thermos or even some of the Mini Dippers which are leak proof.  The Compartmentalized Food Storage Containers are sold in sets of 4 for only $13.95!

Easy Lunchboxes Lunch Bag Coolers

The perfect addition to the containers, and another part of the Easy Lunchbox System, are the Easy Lunchbox Lunch Bag Coolers!  These insulated lunch bags are made of the highest quality, non-toxic materials, and are vinyl-free.  The 300D Polyester outside is extremely durable and tough, and the FDA compliant PEVA inside lining is also quite durable!  The bags can be wiped down with a soapy cloth, or even put inside the washing machine on a cold water, gentle cycle then air dried.
The lunch Bag Coolers measure 9” x 6.5” x 6.5”, which is roomy enough for the Storage Containers, a water bottle, an ice pack and an extra snack or two;  or you can pack 2 of the Compartmentalized Food Storage Containers and still have room for an ice pack, or you can just pack 3 of the containers! Any way you do it, there is plenty of room for a full-sized, healthy meal.  I also keep all 4 of my Compartmentalized Food Storage Containers and lids nestled together inside the cooler bag when they are not in use which makes for very convenient storage!
The bags are soft-sided, and it is recommended that you use these bags with the Food Storage Containers since they are made for a custom fit. They are available in 6 bright colors, and have a sturdy carrying strap with a grommet on one part of the handle so you can hang a name tag or something more creative to help personalize the bag. The bags can even be customized with a clip-on decoration of your choice for an extra personal touch! Each bag costs only $7.95!

Easy Lunchboxes Mini Dippers

The third product is the Easy Lunchboxes Mini Dippers. These are smaller sized containers perfect for sauces, dips and other wet foods. They measure around 2” x 2.5” x 1.5”, or 2.5 fl oz., and will fit easily inside the Easy Lunchboxes Compartmentalized Food Storage Containers. The bottoms are made of the same non-toxic, food-safe, BPA and phthalate-free polypropylene. The kid-friendly, leak resistant lids are also non-toxic, food-safe, BPA and phthalate free, but are made of #4 LDPE. These containers are dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer safe, but are NOT meant to be put in the microwave. They are perfect for salad dressings, sauces, condiments and other condiments. The Mini Dippers come in a set of 8, and they are only $7.95!

Easy Lunchboxes Tips for Care

Easy Lunchboxes are very durable and should last a long while with a bit of care.  Here are a few tips to help them last:
– we all know how kids toss their backpacks down on the ground where they get stepped on, sat on and more. Be careful not put the Easylunchboxes in your child’s backpack, especially with heavy books.
– use the tabs on the sides of the lids to open them.
– while they are dishwasher safe, be sure to put them in their own slot (they will usually fit great on the bottom rack) where they will be less likely to bump around with other dishes when the dishwasher is in use.  Also, don’t wedge them in between heavy pots, pans or dishes.

My Verdict on the Easy Lunchboxes

Overall, I really love the Easy Lunchboxes system!  The compartmentalized containers allow me to send just the right amount of food with our son to school, and they fit perfectly in the cooler bag with plenty of room leftover for an ice pack, drink and some extra sides.  They are very easy to pack, as well as to clean and store when they are not in use. I am planning on getting a set of the Mini Dippers so I can have the entire system.
I would definitely recommend the Easy Lunchboxes System to anyone looking for a non-toxic, food-safe, easy-to-use, economical lunchbox to send with your child to school or even to take to work for yourself!
