There are some foods I know my kids will always eat and Soba Noodles is one of them. Soba noodles are so quick and easy and you can pack this for lunch!
Recently, the good folks over at PlanetBox reached out to me and asked me to try their ROVER Complete PlanetBox packing system: the lunchbox, magnets, dipper set & carry bag!
“The PlanetBox Rover is designed for those who prefer to sample a wide variety of foods with smaller serving sizes. The Rover holds nearly 4.5 cups of food, which happily satisfies many customers, including both adults and children. The Rover Complete Kit includes a Rover lunchbox, the Big and Little Dipper for wet messy foods, your choice of super fun magnets designs, as well as a Rover Carry Bag for easy transport available in a variety of vibrant colors.”
I love this lunchbox container because of all the fabulous small compartments. Perfect for my kids because they don’t eat too much of one thing anyway and perfect for me too because I like to snack and graze on multiple things while eating. The containers are easy to open and close, as well as the lunchbox itself. The little lever thing is very easy to snap open and close. And when closed, the lunchbox is tight and secure.
The only problem with this lunchbox is that I only have one. My girls were already fighting over who is going to get to use it first and who gets the cool carry bag. I’ll definitely be ordering one more very soon. If you’re in the market for a new lunchbox container for yourself or your child, check these out. They are stainless steel, dishwasher safe and fabulous.
