To be honest, packing school lunches for my two boys, Canaan and Quincy, was very stressful. I’d spend time creating healthy, nourishing lunches full of love, and feel disappointed when their meals came home untouched. Not only was I wasting time and food, my kids were hungry!
In 2008, I designed the original stainless steel bento box – a divided container that was easy to pack with a variety of healthy foods. I’d fill them with my kids’ favorite main dishes, fruits, vegetables, and sides and believe it or not, they came home from school empty!
As the Founder & CEO of LunchBots, I’ve been designing bento boxes for kids and helping parents simplify lunch packing for over a decade. The beauty of a simple lunchbox is that the entire process is just finding lunches that are easy for you to make, using foods your kids love. That’s really all there is to it!
LunchBots is here to help you! Sincerely, Jacqueline Linder
1 - YOUR KIDS WILL EAT THEIR LUNCH
"This lunchbox has worked great and an unintended benefit is that my kids have finished so much more of their food than they did before. Maybe it's because they have less unpacking to do or it looks more appealing? I'm not sure, but I'm thrilled!"
– Laura, mom of two kiddos
2 - THEY’LL LAST A LIFETIME
"True story... Their dad ran over a lunch box with one of these inside coming into the driveway and only dented the lid a small bit. Didn't affect the lid closing or the dividers. Still in use!"
– Mom of 4 boys, ages 9, 8, and 6-year-old twins
3 - THEY’RE DISHWASHER SAFE
"I originally purchased a different bento box that was seal-tight, but after one wash in the dishwasher I couldn't get the lid back on properly (it warped), so I returned it and bought this one. This one is sooooooo much better. LOVE IT!"
– Dawn, mom of two elementary school kids
4 - THEY’RE SIMPLE TO PACK
"The sections make it so easy to pack a variety of foods. The kids' vegetable consumption has skyrocketed because brightly colored vegetables shine in their little compartments."
– Wilfred, dad of two veggie-loving kids
5 - YOU’LL CREATE ZERO WASTE
"We love that we are not using disposable snack and sandwich baggies anymore. Small steps for a healthier planet!"
– Sarita, lunch packer for her daughter
