It is so hard to pack my kids lunches everyday! There are only so many things you can pack in a lunch, and only so many things my kids will actually eat in a lunch. I stopped buying sandwich bags a while ago, and with two kids now in school I don't have enough little plastic containers to pack both of their lunches. So, I went on a hunt in a hurry after school started to find something. I know there are other things out there, but this is what I found. (I'm an instant gratification person, if I go shopping for something, I want to come home with it that day!) This was 7.97 at Wal-Mart.
It has an ice pack, dividers, and a little container to put fruit dip or vegetable dip in - BONUS!!! You can go to Rubbermaid's website and purchase them straight from there for a little more money, they also have some other options to fit different size lunch boxes... SEE HERE.
Here is the top of Mallary's lunch:
Trevan's lunch today: Pineapple, carrots, and a cookie on the top part.
Below that is his sandwich cut in the shape of a puzzle. Underneath the napkin it is resting on are Doritos.
It fits inside his lunch box perfectly - with room to spare for a water bottle or even another container if needed!
My life just got a little easier!
