SafeMama Review: LunchBots Stainless Steel Lunch Containers

When I first found out about all the chemicals leaking into food from plastic containers I started using stainless steel bowls for my son’s food.  The problem of course was I could not travel with them because there were no lids.  Luckily I found Lunchbots and have had the pleasure of testing out LunchBots stainless steel containers.

LunchBots are 100% stainless steel so no chemicals leak into my son’s food.  The outside has a powder coating but it doesn’t emit any VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and of course, these are lead-free.

The LunchBots Uno is the perfect size to carry a sandwich, with regular store-bought bread.

Another option is the LunchBots Duo is the same size as the Uno but has 2 separate compartments.  I’ve used it for crackers, fruit, cheese, and dry cereals but liquids are not recommended.

The lids fit tightly so they haven’t come off when I’m throwing them in the diaper bag.  My son felt the need to stand on them and it held his 22lbs without bending it in.

These are perfect for sending kids off to school, in your bag for lunch or for on-the-go snacks.  Stainless steel is one of the best materials for food storage and there is no worrying about things like BPA, PVC, Phthalates, or other plastic chemical leaching.  Plus they’re reusable…  no more filling up trashcans with ziplocks and saran wrap.  We love these!
