My journey as a mom, teacher, and Navy wife, one challenge at a time!
Today I want to talk about this little stainless steel container by the LunchBots brand. If you haven’t already read it, check out my post about going plastic-free in school lunches. This post is NOT sponsored. I’ve never been in contact with LunchBots, but I am including an Amazon affiliate link in this post.
We’ve been using this little LunchBots container in Little J’s school lunches for almost a year, and it’s holding up just fine. It still looks brand new, actually. Since I work full time, Little J goes to summer school June-August, so we have used this 8oz stainless steel container A LOT.
It’s leak proof, which is a huge plus. We usually use it for apple sauce or yogurt. This container isn’t insulated, but along with an ice pack in his lunch bag, the apple sauce or yogurt stays cool until lunch or his mid-morning snack time. LunchBots does also sell thermal containers, and this particular container is dishwasher safe.
Little J is still able to open it on his own, even though I always screw it on tight. I’m sure that’s a plus for his teachers since they don’t have to help him!
Anyway, it’s simple, but it works! Is there a stainless steel container you use in your kiddos’ lunch boxes and really love? Share below in the comments!

The Planet Wise reusable zipper sandwich bag is made with food-safe EVA; it is free of PVC, BPA, phthalate, latex and lead. EVA stands for Ethylene Vinyl Acetate. I was hesitant to buy this reusable bag at first, but I decided as long as I handwash this bag and since I’m not using it for liquids, it meets my requirements.
I like this Planet Wise bag because the zipper keeps all the food in the bag (hello, grapes), and sandwich bread doesn’t dry out. My son LOVES the camouflage pattern. I still want to think of him as a little preschooler who likes cute owls and smiley faces, but the reality is he’s in elementary school, and he likes trucks and Soldiers.
Besides grapes, we’ve used this reusable bag for sandwiches and tortilla chips. I’ve been washing it by hand, but it is dishwasher safe. I am careful to make sure the bag is open wide when I put it on the dish rack to dry. I don’t want any mold.It’s come in so handy that I’m going to buy another one or two!
You can find the Planet Wise reusable sandwich bag and the snack bag version on Amazon:
