Above is a typical lunch I pack for the kids, it has a fruit, entree and beverage. I like to pack the kids’ lunch in glass containers, because they are the best and safest containers to eat from. No BPA worries with glass, plus with glass you taste the actual food. Glass doesn’t leach a metallic or plastic taste, as with plastic and metal containers. The best thing about glass is that it’s dishwasher safe, and can be re-used again and again. For those of you that are worried about using glass, I get it, but I wanted to let you know that Eli who is almost 8, has been using these containers in his lunch since pre-school, and has yet to break one. He is all boy, so that’s saying a lot. You don’t have to go out and buy new containers. Take a look in your cabinets, and see what you have on hand already, and get creative. If you need to purchase some new containers, hit the Container Store or Bed Bath and Beyond, as they both have a great selection.
