    I was about to say the same thing. I have a link to them in my first post because I bought some for DS this year and they've been great,

    I actually looked at those today, but didn't like how they have to be used together.

    I love the big nude food movers We have been using them for a few years now.
    DS was recently awarded house points at school fro his rubbish free lunch box They actually gave every student one of the sandwich holder ones to eliminate glad wrap

    I put fruit and yogurt or dip in the little tubs, DD gets more fruit in the square end of hers because she simply can't live a day without watermelon!
    A small packet of chips/grainwaves or a big bear goes on top on the sandwich divider. DS will sometimes have tuna salad in his too.

    You don't have to use them together - you can just use one of the tubes with the lid as a standalone container. The ones I bought from Woolworths actually came with spare lids so you can use them as three separate containers if you like.

    My son isn't in school yet and day care supply all meals but reading these posts has freaked me out with so many rules and options lol

    Lunch wrapping was so easy when I was kid - paper bag, glad wrap or if they ran out a vegemite sandwich in the empty bread packet lol

    Some schools even encourage the children to put their food rubbish back into their lunch boxes so at the end of the day when mum/dad goes to clean it out, its got all the rubbish in there....it can be gross when its half a sandwich and crumbs from tiny teddies mixed together with the left over juice from the juice box....and I suppose its their way of saying "If you bring wrappers, rubbish will come home". Pretty much forces you to want to do waste free lunches Haha

    They don't have to be used together, you get 3 lids and 3 tubs in a pack. So you can choose to either screw them to each other or use them separately. I have 3 girls and they have one each.

    Oh ok, it looked like the bottom of one was the lid for the next.

    The school provides bins, and there is no policy to say it must be litter free, but they do have a reward system for those who have no litter. We don't use pre-packaged food, and have heaps of containers of different shapes and sizes.

    I don't have children at school yet but DD1 goes to daycare 1 day a week and she has never taken anything that needed to be thrown out. he lunch box is completly little free by my choice the daycare doesn't mind. i have a heaps and heaps of containers though so it's pretty easy. she has yoghurt in a tupperware snack cup and fruit in a sistema rectagle taller container, a sandwich is a tupperware sandwich keeper. cheese and olives in a little decor container, cucumber and capsisum cut up in another little decor container and then a little muffin or slice in another tupperware snack cup
