When it comes to packing a child's lunch, the daily menu is only one of the challenges. Choosing the lunch box can be surprisingly complicated. Should you choose the inexpensive paper bag? Not only does it rip when wet, but you can't fit Tupperware in it. Hm. What about the classic kid lunch box? It's better than a paper bag, but you feel guilty using all those little plastic bags – plus, they get expensive. We have discovered a great new option for lunch time and it's called the Goodbyn.
This version of the Goodbyn doesn't have "ears", making it a more sleek and "grown up" option for your child. While the other version is best for the younger set (Pre-K and kindergarten), this one is better for older kids.
The Goodbyn Too Cool For Ears Lunch Box offers many, many benefits.
1) You will feel virtuous. The Goodbyn is absolutely the most eco-friendly lunch box we've found. The clever design features little compartments for all sorts of lunch items, meaning you can stop using all those plastic baggies. It comes with an 8.5-ounce bottle so you can send along a drink without relying on those pricey and wasteful juice boxes. When you are done with Goodbyn, your kid can give him a little hug in appreciation and then toss him into the recycling bin. Or you can make Mr. Goodbyn immortal and use him to stash sewing essentials, your child's sea glass collection, or whatever else needs a home.
2) Your kid will love it. The Goodbyn solves a couple kid hang-ups when it comes to lunch. It keeps food separate so your child doesn't have to deal with the "touching foods" Also, the Goodbyn can be decorated with stickers! (what kid doesn't love stickers?) Each Goodbyn comes with three sheets of stickers so kids can jazz up their lunch with faces, designs, and whatever else comes to mind. Your lunching kiddo will be thrilled by the hundreds of stickers that include alphabets, funky facial features, and even allergy labels.
3) Goodbyn makes it so easy to pack healthy lunches. With life as busy as it is, it can be hard to pack the most healthy foods – especially when there are countless packaged lunch items for kids in every supermarket. Skip the high salt, high fat options and stick to the healthier, even more delicious foods that your child's body is craving. The compartments give you the perfect space to pack a sandwich and lots of little side snacks. OK, maybe we are a little weird, but it's actually fun packing lunch in a Goodbyn. There is something about the design that is really aesthetically pleasing. It's kind of like a food palette – one plate with lots of colors and shapes. Throw in some blueberries, popcorn, and whatever else comes to mind. Kids will love the tiny snack compartments, a fact that will lead to fewer leftovers.
Healthy lunch accomplished. Earth saved from mountains of plastic bags. Your sanity preserved for another day. Yeah, we also think it's a pretty worthwhile investment.
The Nitty Gritty details:
Materials - The Goodbyn lunchbox is made out of virgin plastic that's FDA approved to be used with foods. The hard plastic will protect your child's lunch, keeping it from getting squashed to and from school or camp. The plastic is #5 polypropylene (lunchbox and lid) and #2 high-density polyethylene for the bottle. The plastic is totally free of lead, BPA, and phthalates.
Using the Goodbyn - Even though the plastic is microwaveable, current research discourages the heating of any plastics for reasons of chemical leaching. Also, don't try to send along soup in the Goodbyn – it isn't designed to accommodate liquids in the plastic compartments. Luckily, it's super easy to clean as it can be used in the dishwasher up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (the stickers were designed to withstand dishwashers, so don't worry about your child's designs washing off). Want to keep your child's lunch extra cold? Cold packs can be used in the bigger compartments to keep that deli sandwich cool. And yes – the Goodbyn is even freezer safe!
