Looking for a washable, divided, insulated, durable lunch box for kids? Interested in helping your child eat better by packing a larger variety of food in their school lunch?
I was contacted by Planetbox.com to test out one of their really cool products and share my opinion with you. They have designed a series of lunch boxes that can be used by children and adults alike, with high quality parts that will hold up for many years. Their products are designed to address what a lot of us are looking for in a lunch box.
I received one of their best-selling lunch boxes: The Rover. As soon as it arrived in the mail, my oldest daughter gravitated to it, wanted to look inside, and asked immediately to use it the next day. I loved how the outside casing has a spot to carry a water bottle, as fitting the water in has been the biggest challenge with the other lunch containers I’ve tried. I also loved that it is insulated, and has an additional pocket in front where you could place a secret note, an extra cool pack, or utensils.
The main reason I love the PlanetBox is the layout. Because it has many small sections, I can fill them all with a little bit of a large variety of fruits and veggies. Such variety in the lunch container makes for a well balanced meal.
I also love the two small containers that come inside the planetbox, which are perfect for yogurt, cereal, soup, or anything else that may not work well in the square openings.
Here are some of the lunches we’ve made in our PlanetBox:
You can customize your PlanetBox with adorable magnets and other accessories. We received very cute fairies, which my 7-year old loves. Next year both of my little girls will be in school all day, so my soon-to-be kindergartener is very much looking forward to using cool lunch boxes like this to bring her own lunch to school!
Give PlanetBox a try, it’s so fun to pack and send with the kids. This thing will last you for years, and will not disappoint. Check out their website for tons more meal ideas and browse their great line of products!
