I have been using Laptop Lunches to pack my kids' lunches for over a year now, and I still love them.
When I first had to start packing lunches for school, I fumbled around with plastic baggies and felt guilty for using so many. I wanted to find something that was better for the environment, and that would make lunch look more appetizing for my children. I found it in Laptop Lunches. Now I don't know what I would do without them!

Here’s a lunch I made recently. It’s nothing fancy, but somehow looks a lot yummier than if it were in plastic bags.
I rated the lunchbox a 4 instead of a 5 because a full-size sandwich doesn't really fit very well. I am able to fit a sandwich because it is on gluten-free bread (smaller than other bread) with the crust cut off (kids!) You could put a half sandwich in each of the larger compartments but then you are giving that big space. However, I found out that the newer version of the lunchbox is 1/4 inch deeper, so maybe that solves the problem. I'm still not convinced that an older child might not be left feeling hungry, but for younger kids, this is definitely a great way to lunch!
