Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Rubbermaid. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

The average disposable lunch costs $4.02/day.

The average waste-free lunch costs $2.65/day.

That’s a difference of $246 for the school year.

If you have 3 children, the difference is $738.00!!  

The environmental impact is just as startling.  The trash added to a landfill by one child’s lunches is 67 lbs per year.  There are 511 children at my daughter’s school – that’s 34,237 lbs of trash per year!!

A reusable lunch kit is easy-to-use, convenient, saves time, saves money, and puts less trash into landfills.  I’d say that’s a Back-To-School ESSENTIAL, wouldn’t you?

So where do you start to make your kids a reusable lunch kit?  The goal is no waste, so you need washable containers and a reusable bag.  Don’t forget the washable utensils and a cloth napkin.  Voila!


When you are looking for washable containers, you need something durable with size flexibility to fit sandwiches, leftovers, salads, etc.  My favorite mantra for healthy eating is to “lunch on a rainbow”.  I try to give my daughter healthy, colorful choices that make her lunch delicious and fun.  Like any kids, she loves finger food that’s easy to eat and choices.  So I want containers that let me give her the variety she loves.

I found a product that fits all those criteria!  The reliable quality of Rubbermaid is evident in the LunchBlox Kit – a set of containers that work together to serve up a delicious, fresh lunch.  No more squished sandwiches, messy leaks, or warm-supposed-to-be-cold food!

  • handy measurements on the pieces work for portion control
  • dishwasher safe (oh, yeah!)
  • leak-proof containers survive the most active kid in your family
  • three sizes to fit whatever kind of treats you make
  • BPA-free

Tips to make lunch preparation easy

Are your kids old enough to pitch in and pack their own lunches?  They will be more likely to love the food, if they’ve packed it themselves!  And it will make your life easier if you are just supervising and adding final touches.

Pack lunch as you clean up the dinner dishes.  Incorporate leftovers in tomorrow’s lunch.  Have your Rubbermaid LunchBlox Kit handy and fill the containers with treats from dinner!  Quick and easy.

    I recently bought two of the smaller blocks and I love that they snap together. I’ve used them in my kids’ lunch so far with watermelon, cantaloupe, pasta salad and salsa and they haven’t leaked either, which is nice.
