For Chanukah, the kids received a Planetbox and we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this new lunchbox system. Each compartment is serving-sized and there are no individual containers needed to make this system work.
The outer bag is washable, has a flap for extra snacks or dipping sauces (comes with a large and small container for dips and sauces but neither are necessary for your child's lunch system to work). There is also a spot for a water bottle.
The box itself holds magnetic decorations. Here, Alia is using the retro cat magnets.
Here is tomorrow's lunch: grape tomatoes, apple wedges, vegan mac -n- cheeseless, pita chips and a few M&Ms.
The Planetbox is safe, non-toxic and eliminates garbage. The stainless steel is food-safe and will not leech toxic chemicals when in contact with the food. There is NO lead, vinyl/PVC, Phthalates, Bisphenol-A(BPA) or other harmful or toxic substances.
