Rubbermaid Lunchblox #spon

LunchBlox Kids Flat Kit - Pink, Purple, Green


*I was sent a set of the new Rubbermaid Flat LunchBlox to facilitate my review.  All opinions and weird lunch choices are my own.

Diva carries her lunch to school every day.  Every. Day.
But my sweet baby girl doesn't get the average sandwich, apple, & bag of chips.
Oh no.
She gets a main course (leftovers), a fruit, a vegetable side, something fermented (sauerkraut, pickles, etc.) and dessert (a couple of Hershey Kisses.)

There are some requirements for the containers that I send in Diva's lunch:
  1. Because of her odd interesting lunches, she almost always is in need of a microwave.  Thank goodness her school has one the students can use.  Whatever I put her lunch in, it needs to be microwave safe because what I don't intend for her to have for her lunch is melted plastic.
  2. Diva's lunches are often saucy or juicy so her containers need to have tight fitting lids.
I reviewed a set of the Rubermaid LunchBlox when they first came out and thought they were great but that the grooves that lock them in place were not tight enough and therefore the blox didn't hold together all that well.  Rubbermaid must have read the reviews since these blox hold in place much tighter on the ice tray.

Pros:

Great sizes for blox plus optional dividers for compartments in large container
Flat ice tray chills everything equally without the bulk or condensation of an ice pack
Fun colors
Modular
Leak proof lids
Microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe & BPA free
Made in the USA
Quality that I expect from Rubbermaid

Cons:

The blox don't snap to each other very tightly

  1. My husband is just starting to bring a lunch to work with him instead of just buying fast food. His lunch will mostly be left overs. This might just work.

  2. My kids don't like anything too "weird" but something kind of different might be pistachios sometimes and of course a cute little lunch box note.

  3. My oldest doesn't eat bread so I have to send some interesting lunches myself. Some of her favorites besides leftovers include cheesy rice, lunch meat with cheese in middle (then melted), salad, and corn tortillas with melted cheese. Hmmm.....now that it's in writing, I'm noticing a lot of cheese!

  10. The weirdest thing I pack in my son's lunch is probably vienna sausages.

  11. My oldest used to take pancakes and syrup sometimes, other times he would take precooked bacon and hard boiled eggs, dry cereal, a milk tetra pack and fruit... My kids don't eat deli meat, so I need to be creative with cheeses and stuff. No peanut butter allowed at school unfortunately, which is the only sandwich my children eat.
