I bought them for $10 each when I was pregnant with Star.
I would have paid way, way more.
Ours are something like this.
Unfortunately, Tupperware doesn't make them anymore.
I apologize for Tupperware's inability to see the goldmine they had.
In the past 14 years, we have used them hundreds upon hundreds of times.
1. Money is saved. There are no baggies, as everything just gets put into the boxes. And think of the money I haven't spent on eating out!
2. Everyone eats healthier meals.
2. The boxes can be packed depending on each child's taste.
3. When it's time to eat, there isn't a bunch of time-wasting divvying up of food. Just pass out the boxes.
4. There is no concern about food being placed on dirty tables.
5. When eating outside, while a child is eating his sandwich, the lid can be closed so as not to attract flies and bees.
6. When traveling, the boxes are easily held in the kids' laps, enabling them to eat while the car is in motion.
7. The words "HE ATE THE LAST ONE AND I DIDN'T GET ANY!" or "HE GOT MORE THAN ME!" or "I WANTED THE GREEN BOX!!" are never screeched, since the food is dished out beforehand into identical boxes.

But what to put in those boxes??
Sandwiches, of course, are the easiest to pack. That is the usual for us. However, I've packed salads and wraps in there, too. Really, anything your kid likes to eat. (And if your kids are anything like mine, they will want to eat the same blasted thing every single day. I usually let them.)
I have packed breakfast foods in there, too. In fact, 180 school days in a row, my kids ate breakfast in the car. Scrambled eggs, cereal, bagels, french toast with syrup...it's all good.
No joke. If you have little kids and you like to picnic or need to eat on the go a lot, get these.
Well, something similar to these, seeing as how Tupperware is a doofus.
Have a lovely day!
