Sweet Stuff: Best Lunch Box Ever

Sweet Stuff: Best Lunch Box Ever

I’m one week into my new career as a lunch packer – well, actually, I’m half a week into it – and so far, so good! On her first day of Senior Kindergarten, Esme ate everything I sent, which included a bit extra she wanted to be able to share with her bestie, Violet. And before you yell at me – people on Twitter get a little hot under the collar, no? – I now realize the sharing of lunches is a no-no. In any case, she ate every bit of it. I’m loving and appreciating all the ideas you’ve been sending for making lunch less arduous. There will definitely be more lunch posts coming up! 

I’ve put a few pictures up on Instagram (@cerimarsh) and Facebook of the lunches I’ve made so far and lots of people have been asking about the awesome Bento-style lunch box I’m using. It’s the Spencer Stainless Steel Bento Box from Pottery Barn Kids. I know I featured another one from this line recently, but this is the one I ended up with. It’s not the cheapest lunch box at $60.59 but it’s made of steel, which means it will really last. It has two levels, so larger items like sandwiches can go in the bottom and smaller things like crackers and cut veggies can go in the top. I like that it keeps everything separate and clean. But what I really like is the lid – a BPA-free plastic lid that snaps on tight (so no leaks!). The whole things slide easily into Esme’s backpack and so far it’s come home with her every day! I know, I know, spoken like the mother of a child who has been at school for three whole days…
