    Default Lunch Boxes

    Hi Ladies!

    Has anyone got recommendations for school lunch boxes? We have been using the nude food movers ones and they keep breaking.

    Would love suggestions!

    We use the insulated lunch boxes. The zip broke on dd's, but it was the first issue we have had with them in years.

    Yep we use the insulated ones too. Ours seem to last for years (if they dont get lost!).

    I jusy throw the food in, it never seems to get squashed or anything.

    me + he = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (due May 2014) + sil (1997)

    I've had the insulated lunch boxes but found they got crumbs and other stuff mushed into the seams. Kept having to put them in the washing machine and it got hard. I'm interested to hear your tips if I've been using them wrong!

    The Tupperware stuff looks great but to replace the food mover set I've got it will cost $75 just for one set! I nearly gagged when I read that figure! I need about 6 sets to do 3 kids.

    I just turn them inside out and give them a wipe.

    I use insulated bags (with the tupperware sandwich keeper), I wipe the bags out daily and throw them in the washing machine with a load thats already going every few days (midweek and Friday/Saturday).

    Nothing gets squashed, I use sandwich bags, or them little sandwich containers. I like that everything stays cold in it with an ice brick.
