My daughter has just started Kindergarten at her “big girl school” and she gets to ride the bus and take her fun lunches to school with her. This year I've cut so much out of the families diet but we also made a lot of changes in the little things that you don't think about hurting you. No more canned foods, reusable pouches. Certain plastics contain BPA in them, so I wanted to make sure when I was packing her lunches that the plastics weren't leaching into her food. That's when I discovered Eco Lunchboxes.
Our stainless steel bentos, lunch boxes & artisan lunchbags are plastic-free, waste-free, BPA-free, PVC-free, petroleum-free andvinyl-free.
I received their Three-In-One Bento Lunchbox and a set of their ECONapkins to review. The napkins come in beautiful hand block printed colors and patterns. They are the perfect size for little faces too. We use fabric napkins at home so she is already familiar with not throwing them away after she uses them.
The Eco Lunchbox itself is my favorite on the market. It has 3 compartments that stack neatly into a compact design. With two clasps on the side that are easy for little hands to get off and open.
The bottom portion is full sized for things like a sandwich or a salad. The top compartment is great for your side dishes. In this case, we used grapes. Then the smallest compartment fits perfectly inside the top compartment and closes tightly for liquid things like condiments or yogurts.
If entire 3-in-1 container fits perfectly into any carrier and if you refrigerate the container overnight it helps to keep it cold longer. I still put an ice pack in the bag just to keep it cool until lunch and I set her drink on top of it as well. But none of her food is touching the insulated bag that she carries.
I don't have to worry about her peanut butter and jelly sandwiches touching any crazy chemicals. They have other great containers as well but the three-in-one design was the perfect fit for packing lunches for my little one. They even have Eco Sacks and more stainless steel flatware and straws.
