Laptop Lunches was founded in 2001 by Tammy Pelstring and Amy Hemmert, who had been friends since their meeting at a mothers group in the park in 1995. Both had been volunteers at their children’s schools, and were concerned with the high waste, nutrition lacking lunches that children brought from home. Together they designed, manufactured, and patented Laptop Lunches. Their system is convenient and appealing to children and parents. Laptop Lunches are safe, containing NO lead, BPA, phthalates or PVC, cost-effective (paying for itself in just 3 weeks), reusable (lasts for years), recycled and recyclable, easy to clean, waste-free, and made in the USA. The cofounders continue to jog together, and donate a portion of their profits to schools and environmental organizations to promote healthy communities and healthy children.
Sweet Southern Lovin had the chance to work with Laptop Lunches. I received the Bento Lunch Box 2.0 in Pink/Lavender. It comes with the Bento Lunch Box 2.0, and 5 multiple sized containers, 3 of which have lids. The containers are super easy to clean and are compact. They can be stuck in the fridge the night before and whenever you are not using them they stack neatly in the cabinet (or like me you can store it all the in the lunch box). This is Aubreighs first year at school and I have been worried about making sure she gets enough to eat and eats the right things. I like the fact that I can send stuff in her lunch that normally I couldn’t send because they don’t exactly fit in a ziploc bag. I also love not having to send 5 ziploc bags a day in her lunch. The first day I fixed her lunch I used 4 out of the 5 bowls. In the biggest bowl I sliced up her sandwich and it fit perfectly. I was also able to send her a diced up hard-boiled egg (I have no clue how I could have sent it in her lunch before getting a Bento Lunch Box). I was also able to send her pretzels with her favorite dipping sauce, mustard. Because I didn’t use the 5th container, I was also able to stick her juice box in with her lunch. I stuck it in the fridge the night before and it was still perfect when she went to eat it at lunch at school the next day.
