Stainless Steel Bento Boxes for fun and creative lunches and snacks!

EcoLuncboxes are a great way to bring some fun and sustainability to you and your families lunches and snacks.

As a mom I've always tried to make healthy meals that are playful and appetizing to even the most picky toddler. I used to use plastic bento boxes that eventually faded, cracked, or started to smell. I discovered stainless steel bento boxes in my journey to a low-waste lifestyle and now can't imagine life without them! 

Coming up with a new and appetizing lunch every day for a kiddo can be overwhelming and daunting sometimes when you've got a million things on your to-do list (hey mama, I see you!), so I'm here to give you ideas and sustainable ways to make lunch fun and tasty! I'll show you a pic of the lunchbbox and write a quick description of the meal so you can customize for what your kiddo prefers and needs. Just FYI, I'm obsessed with Trader Joes so a lot of my food items come from there (this post isn't sponsored by them... they just make healthy food so fun!). 

You'll start to notice that I use the same things in different combinations to keep things fun and interesting! Silicone cupcake liners are another go-to for kids lunches. My kiddo also LOVES the fact that opening the EcoLunchbox is like "opening a food Treasure Chest". Without further ado, check out these eco-friendly lunch box ideas!
