We believe in litterless lunches, here at our house. We use a variety of stainless steel and plastic food containers and reusable water bottles. I knitted the boys "apple cozies" to keep their apples from getting bruised in their bags. We typically don't send prepackaged foods like store-bought granola bars or gummy snacks. Sending homemade snacks isn't that much more difficult than driving to the store to buy a treat to tuck in, so we tend to avoid them. What we can't avoid, however, is the challenge in fitting these larger reusable containers into a lunch bag! As great as they are, they are rather chunky and take up a fair amount of space, so I posed my dilemma to Thermos and they stepped up to the challenge!
