Lunch Ideas (for All Ages) with LunchBots!

If you want to eat better in the New Year, packing yourself wholesome lunches from home can be a great place to start. I recently discovered and started using LunchBots stainless steel containers for some of my daughters’ lunches, which is why I am excited they’re sponsoring* this post today. Here are a few different ways to consider using their products:

Lunches for Adults and Teenagers

Readers ask me all the time what they should pack for their big teenage kids (or even for themselves), and I really do think the LunchBots extra big (and non-Disney character themed) thermal containers could be the answer. What’s more filling than a hearty leftover dinner like whole-wheat pasta or a big serving of homemade soup, stew, taco meat, fajitas, crock pot chicken, chili, lasagna, meatballs, or quiche? Serve with a generous side of fruit and/or a salad and you have yourself a filling lunch.

I fit almost 2 servings of noodles in the pictured LunchBots 16 oz. container:

Lunches for Elementary Aged Kids

I recently started using LunchBots divided containers for my kindergarten and second grade daughters. It’s no secret that I frequently send them soup (in some smaller thermoses that we already own), but since that’s not enough food alone they usually get a couple of “side items” as well. For years I’ve been putting those sides in 2 to 3 different additional smaller containers, but that was before LunchBots sent me one of their divided containers, which is honestly the perfect size for sides. My girls have a very short lunch period, so my theory is the fewer lids they have to open, the better!

Here are two recent lunches I made for my girls using my new LunchBots containers, each paired with a single serving of soup:

Tomato soup, cold grilled cheese, and fruit lunch + Chicken noodle soup, zucchini muffin, and cantaloupe lunch

Lunches for Preschool Children

I actually first learned about LunchBots from our Sales Manager, Kiran. She has used their containers for years in order to serve up the perfect sized portions for her preschool aged children. Here are some examples of what Kiran packed for her almost 2-year-old and 4-year-old this past week:

Whole-wheat pizza, celery, nut mix lunch + Homemade whole-wheat chicken nuggets, broccoli, and nut mix lunch

So in summary, these containers provide a lot of flexibility when it comes to serving different ages and appetites. Plus if you’ve been wanting to make the switch to stainless steel, LunchBots is a way to do so without breaking the bank. As we all know, reusable containers of any type can save money in the long run and are of course less wasteful (and therefore better for our environment)! If you’ve tried LunchBots before we’d love to hear what you think in the comments below!

  1. I LOVE our lunchbots containers and have used them for years. Their dips containers are great for sending hummus or other dips to go with the veggies you send in their lunches (this always gets my kids to eat more .) This year I am going to try some of their new leak-proof containers for my lunches!
