Back to School Lunches with Snapware

Ok, I’m going to be very honest with you. I hate packing lunches. In fact, it’s probably my least favourite thing about sending the kids back to school. I am not very creative with lunches and my kids are SOOOOO picky.

I get tons of ideas on Pinterest but most of the recipes and ideas don’t fly with my kids. I usually resort to packing cold cuts, crackers, fruits and a few treats.

This September I’m actually very excited to pack lunches because I’ve received some great containers from Snapware. No kidding, I was giddy when I opened the box and saw how smart these containers looked. I received the Snapware Total Solution food storage kit with ice packs and the Snapware food storage container with divided tray.

Snapware review

The container with a divided tray is my favourite container. I like how it makes it easy to divide my kids’ lunches but keeping everything in one container.

The container with the optional ice pack is perfect for meals that need to remain cold throughout the day. Snapware containers come in great sizes and fit well in my kids’ lunchboxes.
