Back to School Lunch Boxes and GIVEAWAY




with the Easy Lunchbox System! http://www.easylunchboxes.com/


Last school year I had a newborn and so kind of got lazy with lunches. Not this year! I have already asked the kids to put together some HEALTHY lunch ideas. I made a goal to use less plastic bags. This system is so easy to use and great for the environment.

I think I will make sure this year that the kids pack their lunches the night before. They are in less of a hurry and I think will take more time thinking about healthy options. What I love about these containers is they are FDA approved, no BPA, phthalates, lead, vinyl or PVC. Dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe.
The containers hold an entree or a sandwich and two sides. Once inside the cooler bag you still have room for a drink, a thermos and/or extra snacks. I am going to be so organized this school year!

The company offers videos on the website www.easylunchboxes.com/products/index.htm

Kelly was generous enough to send me what is pictured above, 4 containers and a lunch bag (I picked purple). YOU have the chance to WIN 4 containers and a lunch bag in your choice of color (black, dark red, olive, purple or aqua..love the colors I had hard time choosing).

  19. My kids always loved grapes, so my suggestion, would be:
    PB&J
    Grapes and Carrot & Celery Sticks
    (when they have lots of crunch stuff, they
    don't miss the chips as much)
    Yogurt

    I always try an include a serving of calcium - usually a low fat cheese stick or fat free yogurt. We are not milk drinkers so it is a good way to help get the calcium in for the day.

  71. I follow via GFC as Tracy Taylor, and Lunch box snacks are my favorite thing! I love putting little homemade treats in little compartments :) I would put a homemade cookie, a few crakers, a few peices of cut up fruit (diped in lemon water to prevent browning) and a tortilla cream cheese and veg roll up - my youngest daughter loves these. If I was feeling really nice, I might put in some homemade granola or homemade tail mix with some smarties (a HUGE treat in our house.
