Easy Lunch Boxes Review and Giveaway

I have to pack a lunch for my daughter every single day and about this time of year we get really stagnant and repetitive. In other words, so sick of making lunches we groan just at the thought of making yet another pb&j!

I came across EasyLunchBoxes.Com and was inspired with loads of ideas for new, fun, and healthy lunches.  Check these ideas out  http://www.easylunchboxes.com/neat_ideas/recipes/index.htm!  The best part?  The containers are designed to perfectly fit in the Lunch Box.  No wasting baggies anymore!

From the website (Green is my comments):


Mornings spent in chaos making breakfast, beds, & lunch boxes?   YES


The EasyLunchbox system makes it simple to organize and quickly pack healthy lunches without wasting money, time, paper or plastic.  -Exactly what we need!


EasyLunchboxes.com started from the desire to send my 3 kids to school with simple, healthy food, with little to no extra packaging or ingredients. But this system is not just for kids. Adult size meals fit perfectly too.


I was like other frustrated moms - I didn't like throwing together lunches during the morning rush. So much time was wasted sorting through a cabinet of mismatched food containers while trying to pack 15-25 well-balanced lunches per week. (Has she been to my house? How did she know?)  I struggled to find something that would help me pack lunches fast, without resorting to the ‘convenience’ of expensive, pre-packaged ‘fast-food.’ Most importantly, I wanted something attractive, eco-friendly (thank you!), and made of food-safe materials that I didn’t have to wash by hand.

My clever solution to the lunch-packing chore is the simple two piece EasyLunchbox container : The bottom has three compartments to hold an entree or sandwich and two side dishes. The fitted lid (which comes in 4 colors) covers all three compartments in a snap. No more mismatched plastic container pieces to keep track of (matching up all those bottoms and lids was the thing that drove me nuts!) or wasteful baggies. Fits perfectly inside the roomy EasyLunchbox custom carrying bag. And there is still plenty of room to throw in an extra snack or two, whole fruit, perhaps a thermos of soup, drink and ice block. Flexibility is key, and since so many different things can fit, no matter what menu you choose to include, it packs easily and quickly. It's amazing how much faster, greener, and easier lunch box packing is with the EasyLunchbox system.


By eliminating the unnecessary multiple parts and accessories offered by other companies, the EasyLunchbox System is 1/2 the price of similar products, so it's very affordable. And it's also reusable, which helps save the environment. FDA approved. No BPA, phthalates, lead, vinyl, or PVC. Safe for dishwasher and microwave.


The simple chic design and bright colors of our Cooler Bags can even be personalized!


We have included a sturdy grommet in the carrying handle so you can easily attach a pretty key ring, or your choice of any type of handcrafted or store bought “flair.” Examples HERE


Our Cooler Bags are made of the highest quality 300D Polyester for premium durability and toughness. Vinyl free (PVC free) & lead free, with an FDA compliant PEVA lining.


I've found the perfect SOLUTION to packing lunches!  I wish I could buy one of these for every single student and teacher who has to pack a lunch at my daughter's school but sadly, I can't.  But thanks to Easy Lunch Boxes I can GIVE AWAY one container and Lunchbox set to a lucky winner for FREE!!!  Yeah!

I like that there is room for two sides, too. My husband just uses a sandwich keeper, but this is even better!

I follow you, have your button and subscribed to their newsletter! I have to say that I love their lunch boxes and REALLY want one (or maybe even 4!). Yes, I pack 4 lunches every day and it sure gets tiring, monotonous and time consuming. I hate using baggies, wasting paper and plastic and only sending sandwiches most days. This looks like a great solution!

I love that they are separate sectioned containers. I end up using several different containers shoved into my daughters lunch bag. Love the idea!!

I like that they fit so well together and you don't have to trash all those plastic baggies. I like the fact that you can wash and reuse for ever.
