Lunch Box Makeover, Tips to Save Time & Money

By  | 

I always have a great time at WLTX! Thanks for joining us this morning to chat about packing kids lunch and making over the lunch box! Below are a few of the tips I shared and the products I love to make lunch time fun. They are affiliate links. Doesn’t change your price one bit and helps fund my coffee habit.

Plan Ahead

Pick an evening or two each week to cut up all your produce and divide food into lunch size portions.

Let Kids Help

Kids are more likely to eat foods they have picked out and had a hand in preparing

Smaller Servings, More Variety

Instead of 2-3 big things, try offering 5-7 smaller servings and mixing it up. Two baby carrot sticks is still a few bites of vegetables.


YUMBOX (Neptune Blue) Leakproof Bento Lunch Box Container for Kids – I love the YumBox Bento Lunch Box for the smaller serving sizes, cooler stickers for each food group, and lid that seals it all in nice and snuck.


Fit & Fresh Lunch on the Go Set with Ice Pack, 3 Reusable Portion Control Containers, BPA-Free, Microwave/Dishwasher Safe Lunch Box – The Fit & Fresh Lunch on the Go Set is great for slightly larger serving sizes and sandwiches.

Fit & Fresh Kids’ Bento Box Lunch Kit with Reusable BPA-Free Removable Plastic Containers, Insulated Lunch Bag and Ice Packs, Kids, Men, Ladies

And the great feature to the Fit & Fresh products are the snap in ice packs that fit snuggly in the lids of many containers, including their version of the kid’s bento box. Extra bonus points that you can purchase extra to keep in the freezer.

Fit & Fresh Cool Coolers Slim Lunch Ice Packs – Set of 4

Lunchskins Reusable 2-Pack Velcro Bag Set, Blue Whale (1 Sandwich + 1 Snack): Last but definitely not least, reusable snack and sandwich bags work beautifully, easily replacing disposable plastic bags, saving you money and better for the environment
