Lucy started preschool last week, so I am making 2 lunches for her in addition to Emma’s lunches.
I let Emma pick everything for this lunch, and she picked deli pepperoni, strawberries, cantaloupe and a Cascadian Farms chocolate chip granola bar in this fun divided lunchbox.
*My one complaint with the Good Lunch Boxes has always been that the dividers didn’t meet the lid, so small food could spill from one section to another. I forgot about it, and all of Emma’s cheerios spilled into her watermelon and got soggy. Gross. But I ordered a few more, thinking I’d just put larger items in them, and they have re-designed them so that the dividers meet the lid! I still wouldn’t put liquid items like applesauce in them, but I think cheerios are safe again. I have a very very happy little girl!! The new patterns are absolutely adorable. If I’m not mistaken, the $6.99 ones on Amazon are the old design while the $7 ones are the new design. If you prefer the $6.99 patterns, they are still good boxes — you just need to stick with large, dry food items.
I’ve also been asked which box is my favorite – Easy Lunchboxes or Good Lunch Boxes, and I can honestly say it’s a draw. The Easy Lunchboxes are shallower, so I don’t feel like there’s a lot of wasted space whereas the Good Lunch Box is deeper, and I find that Emma’s food bounces around a lot more in them. If you were really trying to make cute lunches with eyeballs and shaped foods, the Good Lunch Box would probably be too “roomy” for you. BUT the designs on the Good Lunch Box lids are super kid-friendly, and they will pick those over the solid color lids on the Easy Lunchboxes. But if you are a parent who also packs a lunch for work or errands or whatever, then an Easy Lunchbox would be ideal for you.
