5 Lunch Boxes Perfect For Muffin Tin Meal Lovers

**Originally posted on August 17th, 2010

Summer is winding down for us. And that means back to school shopping, getting the class supply list, back pack, and lunch box figured out before school starts. School may start soon for some of you. Hope you are inspired by these creative lunch boxes. All of these lunchboxes offer up not only a creative alternative to the brown paper bag, but are a great way to help reduce lunchtime waste.

Many of you have asked me how you can take Muffin Tin Meals on the go. These are great options!






Key Features: 
Comes with 4 durable lunchboxes that are durable, microwave/dishwasher safe, 
also no harmful plastics like BPA, and FDA approved. Bags come in a variety of colors and the boxes fit right inside the bags with room for ice pack, drink and snack!
Price Point: 
13.95 for 4 boxes and 7.95 for an insulated bag/case
What I love: 
Separate compartments and streamlined size plus it's a quality product at a great price. We purchased Easy Lunchboxes last year and we love them. I have since recommended them to everyone I know. I can prep the night before and leave them stacked in the fridge. And if I am in a hurry in the morning I am so glad I have easy lunchboxes!

Price Point:
Basic Set is 19.99 (a little pricey, but a solid investment)

It's perfect kids and grown ups alike- It can grow with my kids and they never have to worry about being "too old" for their themed lunch box.

  2. Ziploc makes separate compartment boxes too that look a lot like the easy lunch boxes. You can get a 2 pack for only a few bucks. We use them a lot.

  4. I still can't get over how huge the Goodbyn is. I'd be curious to know if anyone's kids actually carry that thing around. It's ridiculous!

  6. We just ordered some of the Easy Lunch Boxes. I've heard nothing but wonderful things about them. I had thought a lot about getting the Laptop Lunch Box instead but it came down to keeping track of all those little lids. I'm not good at keeping track. LOL

  7. I've had a laptop lunch kit for quite a while and love it. I first saw it on veganlunchbox.com when she was making a lunch a day for her son (that didnt include PB and J). I was hooked. I still love it and still use it. I cant wait for the boys to be old enough to use one.
    For now, for them I have a small metal tiffin.

  8. @Evenspor - We tried the ziploc ones and they don't hold a candle to the Easy Lunchboxes. They may be cheaper, but they don't last as long. We have had our Easy Lunchboxes for a year and they last through a year's worth of use and still going strong!
