Laptop Lunch bento boxes were modeled after traditional bento boxes, containers used in Japanese culture to pack single-portion takeout meals. Updating this classic design, the Laptop Lunch integrates a large snap-shut tray, five colorful, modular containers. The containers vary in size and three come with lids, enabling parents to pack dry and wet foods securely. The un-lidded containers are designed to accommodate dry foods such as vegetable sticks, crackers, cereal, sliced apple, etc. The lidded containers are perfect for wet foods, such as dips, yogurt, cottage cheese, and dressings. All of the food containers fit into a larger snap-shut tray, which fits into many of our large lunch bags.
The choice to include only three lids was intentional – surveys indicated that usually one wet food was packed in kid's lunches, and the search for mismatched lids was the number one frustration for parents that packed lunches in reusable containers.
Made of FDA-approved plastics that will not leach harmful chemicals into food. No binding agents, plasticizers, or other materials suspected to contain carcinogens or endocrine disrupters are used in the Laptop Lunch Bento Kit. Sturdy, rigid containers help prevent "squishing," keeping foods secure during the occasional bumps and bruises on trips to school. Materials
Made with 10% recycled plastics (polypropylene #5
and polyethylene #2
Billions of single-use bags, baggies and food containers are consumed each year. When used in place of disposable single-serving containers and throwaway packaging, each Laptop Lunch kit has the potential to eliminate 1000s of disposables over its lifetime, preserving natural resources, protecting the environment and saving you money in the process.
Additionally, home made lunches are not only more nutritious than prepackaged lunches, but they tend to cost less as well. Estimates suggest that families can save about $250 per person each year this way About Laptop Lunches
The Laptop Lunch Kit was developed by two mothers (Tammy Pelstring and Amy Hemmert) with a mission of helping families improve lunchtime nutrition and reduce waste. And since they believe that healthy kids come from healthy communities, they donate a portion of profits to schools and environmental organizations.
The Laptop Lunches bento box is Made in the USA at a California manufacturing site that adheres to strict health, safety and environmental standards.
