Our kids really do not like eating cafeteria food. They would much rather us pack them a lunch and I cannot blame them. Now that I am working full-time again, I much prefer a packed lunch of my own too. Packing good and at least somewhat healthy lunches can be challenging, but I have found that having the right tools can make this task easier. What are the right tools?
1. Lots of storage containers.
We try to use glass containers rather than plastic. On Sunday afternoons I grab a cutting board and a good knife and peel, slice and dice fruits and veggies for the week. The glass containers keep them fresh and easy to see in a crowded fridge.
2. Good Knives
In order to have nice sliced fruits and veggies it is important to have a good knife, or knives. I am no sous chef, but I can tell a difference when I use our good knives.
3. A good lunchbox.
We recently received 3 new Bento Boxes called Rove. We LOVE them! They are so versatile and at just $12.99 are very affordable. They are (top rack) dishwasher safe. The gel pac is to be placed in the freezer and it serves as an ice pack for the lunch the next day. The silverware is included and is easily stored in the lid!
The compartments allow you to be really creative in what you pack. For Benjamin I packed him some fresh fruit, yogurt, sunflower seeds, salad and a few leftover homemade potatoe wedges. He loved it and loves using it every day. I enjoy the lunches I take to work in it as well. I love bringing lots of mix-ins for a great salad.
What would you pack in your own Rove?Kristen is a wife, mom, blogger and Brand Ambassador. She has four children; 2 boys and 2 girls. Kristen enjoys her role as a stay-at-home mother.
