Back-to-School with Stainless Steel Lunch Containers
Back-to-school means back to packing lunches! Save time, energy and have fun with the kids by packing waste-free lunches in stainless steel lunch containers. You’ll eat healthier by packing homemade, non-packaged foods. Practice healthy portion control and pack balanced meals full of your kid’s favorite foods.
Removable dividers transform stainless steel lunch containers into bento-style solutions with multiple functions, giving you two containers in one. Here are a few of our favorite go-to bento lunches:
Four of a Kind
Pack your four-section divided container with:
- Rainbow Roll
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Crackers of your choice
Pack a side of hummus or dipping sauce in a reusable mini container.
Twice as Nice
Pack your two-section divided container with:
- Apple & Walnut Salad – Combine mixed greens with 4 slices of apple, a tablespoon of gorgonzola cheese, and a handful of walnuts. Pack a dressing of choice on top of the salad or on the side in a mini container.
- Turkey and Avocado Sandwich – Cut a slice of bread diagonally, spread hummus on one side, add half of a sliced avocado, turkey, cheese of your choice and mixed greens or lettuce.
Fruit & Veggie Delight
- Leftover Wrap – Combine any leftovers in your fridge with any veggies in a wrap and slice into bite size pieces. Add brown rice or quinoa for more protein.
- Fruit Slices – Cut up your favorite piece of fruit into slices and enjoy alongside your leftover wrap!
