Plastic Bento Lunch Boxes from Sunsella

With three kids in school, I am always getting one request or another for packed lunches. They just don't care for everything the school serves, so I try to keep supplies on hand. The difficult part can be getting several packages or containers in one bag with a drink and ice too. For a simple solution to this, I now use containers like these Buddy Boxes. 

 These boxes are a nice solution for packed lunches. The multi colored lids make them a little more fun, and allow you to recognize one from another easily if you pack multiple boxes at one time. You can easily add labels to these lids too. They are small enough to fit in most lunch boxes or bags, but have enough space for several items. This is perfect for keeping food separated without having multiple packages or containers. I like them for sandwiches with fruit and cookies or sliced meats and cheeses with crackers. The kids like them because they are easy and they don't have a bunch of trash to throw away at the end of lunch.

I like that the Buddy Boxes are handy and functional. I like that they have a touch of color so they don't look cheap or boring. I like the compartments and how easy they are to clean after. The only thing I didn't like was that the lids are not tight enough to use liquids in these. Soup, salad dressing or other runny items can leak out if they are tipped over. I didn't have any lids actually come off, but did have a few dribbles. This is not a big deal for us. We don't normally carry those kinds of foods, but if you do, I suggest keeping these flat, or avoiding liquids to prevent spills.
