When it comes to eating healthy on the go, packing a lunch is the best option. For the kids, it allows us to know exactly what is going into our little one's tummy and for grown ups, it keeps us from giving into the urge to grab something quick and unhealthy. But it's not just about what goes into the lunch, what it's packed in matters too. For that, ECOlunchbox has everyone in the family covered!
ECOlunchbox makes "plastic-free, non-leaching stainless steel lunch boxes and handy cotton lunch bags to provide waste-free and healthy mealtime solutions for everyone". For this review, I received their Splash Box Kit for a review which includes a bento-style Splash Box, matching organic cotton lunch sack and bamboo spork.
The Splash Box measures 6 1/2 by 4 3/4 inches by 2 inches tall... the perfect size for a kid's lunch, adult sides and even snacking on the go. It features a stainless steel bottom that is designed to stack in a nesting style, making for easy storage. The silicone lid includes easy to grip corners — ideal for little hands — and offers the leak free convenience of traditional plastic lids... without the plastic! Both pieces are free of plastic, BPA and phtlalates and are dishwasher and oven safe.
I loved the simple wave design that keeps the container fun for kids, but it's not overly 'kid-ish', so if I need to use it myself, it would still be appropriate. My son loves taking his lunch in this fun, convenient container that is easy for him to open all on his own.
This kit also includes an organic cotton Blue Water Bento lunch sack. It measures 10 1/2 inches high with a 7 by 4 1/2 inch bottom. It features a sturdy cord handle and velcro closure. This is a great size for kids to toss into their book bag and takes up minimal space for storage — unlike traditional lunchboxes. It perfectly fits the Splash Box as well as an apple and water bottle.
We personally loved the finishing touch of the bamboo spork by Bambu. When packing my child's lunches in the past I was always unsure what silverware to pack. This is the perfect eco-friendly option. It's the perfect size for little hands and is a great substitute for plastic utensils! And there's just something about a spork that makes lunch more fun... for my kid anyway!
This ECOlunchbox lunch kit is a wonderful way to make our lunches on the go more fun... and more green too! We love it! In addition to the Splash Box Kit, ECOlunchbox offers a wide variety of lunch kits, lunch boxes, and accessories that create the perfect lunch for all members of the family.
