The Best Plastic-free Kids Lunchbox
The battle of the lunchbox is one parents have been fighting for years. From slimy insides to yucky smells to potentially toxic chemicals leaking into food, combating the dark side of food storage has prompted brands like PlanetBox to think outside the box. (Pun very intended!) Made of pro-grade stainless steel, PlanetBox’s eco-friendly bento style lunchboxes have eco mamas saying, ‘Yes, please!’
Getting your kids to eat can be quite the hurdle. Take it from us – we know if a carrot is touching the hummus (that your tot totally plans on dipping it in,) then you might as well throw in the towel and keep them home from school because they’re simply, ‘NOT EATING ANYMORE!’
The struggle is real. You know what else is real? A solution.
Thanks to PlanetBox, we’ve finally found eco-friendly bento style lunchboxes that do the perfect job of keeping food separated, fresh and leak-free!
Made from pro-grade stainless steel and food-grade silicone, they’re sustainable, non-toxic, dishwasher-safe and intended to last a lifetime. Featuring numerous compartments and dipping tubs for ‘wet’ food, providing your kids with a well balanced meal just got a whole lot easier, cleaner and safer.
The issue with a lot of mainstream lunchboxes that are currently on the market is that they’re often made with plastics that contain harmful chemicals like BPA, phthalates, lead and PVC. These all contain known endocrine disrupting chemicals that can wreak havoc on developing bodies. When combined with heat from warm food or heat from sitting in a hot backpack all day, these chemicals can leach into the food that your child is going to eat. No, thanks.
While we love PlanetBox for our toddlers and pre-schoolers, we also love that so many of their options cater for big kids and adults. They even have water bottles for every family member.
