A Shinny New Box for Christmas October 21, 2015 12:00

It’s nearly time for Christmas, freshly bake cookies, ginger bread house, santa and of course — Christmas gift.

A shinny new box - perfect Christmas gift for starting school. 

Lunchbots Trio and Lunchbots Cinco is stylist, modern, safe and lightweight bento box. This shinny bento box is 60% larger than the classic Lunchbots lunch box.

I’m not the only mother concerned with the modern school lunch box. The lunchbox must be safe, durable & reusable. 

Many also worry about having safe containers for those packed foods, which is why Jacqueline Linder launched Lunchbots. 

“Concerned about chemicals in plastic containers leaching into our food, I went on a search for alternatives. Stainless steel was the perfect material; it’s safe, lightweight, and non-breakable.

After a year or so of searching for stainless steel food containers and not finding what I needed, I built it. In 2008, I launched LunchBots from the garage of my home in Northern California.

Our mission is simple: to provide the highest quality, best-looking, healthiest food containers on the planet.”

 

Lunchbots is durable and extremely safe, formed from food-grade, Type 304 stainless steel, which resists stains and rust.

These containers can pack plenty of healthy, filling, energy-filled foods and is completely dishwasher safe. 

Where to buy?

A guide of how to pack school lunches October 21, 2015 06:30


This post is just to show you some ideas and tips that maybe helpful for you to pack homemade lunches in bento box. I usually like to pack at least have 4 types of food: carbs/grain (carbohydrates), proteins, vegetables, and fruits.

Be conscious about what types of foods to put in bento box when you are packing lunch. I always include some type of “veggie” in each lunchbox. Yes, even if I know it will come back uneaten. It sometimes takes years for a kid from "NO" to willing try it.  

High protein food will help kids stay fuller longer. I like to pack with bold colour as it provide great visual impact and create better appetite.

Colours that you may consider : Red, Yellow, Orange & Green.
Example: Carrot, bell pepper, strawberries, plum, tomato, red radish, apple, corn, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, orange, lemon, grapes, raspberries, nectarines, banana, lettuce, cucumber, green onion, edamame, broccoli, spinach, snap peas, asparagus, green beans, Brussels sprouts, green peas & kiwi.

Always plan ahead what you would like to put in the lunch box. if you want to pack your lunch quickly, use left over or pre-cook in big bulk meal and freeze it. You may bake muffin, mini sausage roll, mini hotdog bun and mini quiches in a big batch and freeze it. You may also pre-cut your vegetables and keep in the fridge. This cut down the time preparing the lunch box during the week.

Here are some school lunches that I made for my girl using the Boon Cargo and Lunchbots bento lunch box , cute food picks, animal sandwich cutters and silicone food cups.  This food cup is great for keeping wet things away from dry things and holding loose items like blueberries in one place.
The lunch box then was sent to school in So young insulated lunch bag with an ice pack or a frozen smoothies in My Squeeze reusable pouch
