Back to School with No Waste "Laptop Lunches"

Picnics in the park will soon give way to school lunches, but the fun will surely continue if you pack your child's lunch in the Laptop Lunch Bento Box Set. I didn't know it was possible to be "in love" with a lunch box, but I can truly say that this darling set has stolen my heart. The Laptop Lunch is yet another incidence where I am wishing I had one of these growing up, but bless my mom's heart, she packed my lunch every single day from kindergarten through high school, and she even tucked in encouraging notes she which kissed with pink lipstick. (Yes, her seat in Heaven is reserved.)

Laptop Lunches are free of lead, phthalates and BPA. The actual box is encased in a miniature laptop bag which zips closed, and children can carry it by the handle or by adding the long strap. (see the photo above of the set in "Whimsical") The box inside includes four varying sizes of containers, one with a lid... and there's also a small container for dips or condiments. A water bottle, spoon and fork complete the system. All of the containers, (minus the lids) are microwavable, and all are top-rack dishwasher safe.

Making these lunch boxes even more handy for moms, they come equipped with a user's guide which contains lunch menus, thoughts on reducing lunchtime waste, and tips for picky eaters.

I shudder at the thought of Olivia going off to school, but at least I know she'll have a healthily packed lunch to fill her tummy once she's out and about on her own. I'll also be teaching her about saving the earth one meal at a time by eating from safe, re-usable containers. Order your Laptop Lunch here today.

I love this. I feel so guilty buying prepackaged food for my sons' lunch boxes. Add a stainless steel water bottle, and it is a perfect lunch for the earth and their bodies!
