Here is another great product from one of my favorite food container companies – Fit & Fresh. Today I’m showing you the lunch I made in my new Soft Touch Lid Meal Carrier. I really love this box! It has so much room – I could fit a sandwich (and a half), a big serving of vegetables, a big portion of fruit, and a half cup of nuts. This box is a great size for a bigger appetite, or in this case, lunch and a good sized snack for later.
Let me tell you about that little yellow lidded container. It actually came with my Bento Lunch Kit, but it fits nicely in both lunch boxes. I like using it more in this lunch box because it matches the lid 🙂 It is so useful in both lunch boxes! It holds 1/2 cup, and is great for anything you need to keep away from the other foods in your bento box. I’ve used it so far for nuts and crackers – it keeps them nice and crunchy! When I have packed those things before, especially if I pack the lunch the night before, the nuts or the crackers tend to pick up moisture from the other foods and they lose their crisp-ness. I’m sure it would be great for very wet things like yogurt as well.
I love the new soft touch lids on these containers! They are more flexible, so they’re easy to put on and take off. And they come with 2 ice packs for the lid so you can use one, or both, or none at all – depending what you pack for lunch. I recommend using the ice pack over fruits and vegetables, but not for sandwiches – it tends to make the bread too moist.
