These things are PERFECT for my 3 kiddos' lunches. The plastic is thick & sturdy with just enough flexibility that they seem like they will stand up to a lot of repeat use. The lids fit flawlessly & are easy for my children to take off & put back on -- AND the lids stay sealed tightly even with typical kiddo lunch bag abuse. I use them in conjunction with the 4 oz. Small Food Keeper (same product line) and between the movable divider and the 4 oz. container (which can also easily fit INSIDE the Divided Keeper!) I am able to configure them in a multitude of arrangements AND have a leak-proof compartment within compartment. It is so nice to finally be able to QUICKLY & EASILY assemble school lunches and keep everything separate as needed -- my kiddos love taking some crackers, lunch meat & cheese slices cut into fourths, some fresh fruit, and a small treat for dessert -- however it used to be such a pain either having a bunch of separate containers or wrapping things in plastic wrap or foil to make sure the strawberries didn't stain the turkey red or make the crackers soggy, for example.
Plus these little containers hold a lot! (or at least plenty for what my kids typically eat at school) -- I can fit 2 slices of lunch meat & 1-2 slices of cheese (cut into fourths -- which I put side-by-side in the 4 oz. keeper), 2-3 strawberries and a small handful of grapes (which I tuck in alongside the 4 oz. keeper on one half of the Divided Keeper), about 8 crackers, AND a small handful of Nutter Butter Bites. Yet it is such a slim profile!! They take up minimal space in my cabinets when not in use, and I can neatly & easily stack half a dozen of them in a small section of my fridge and have 2 days' worth of lunches for 3 kiddos on standby without sacrificing very much space in my rather small refrigerator. (I actually purchased a wire mesh pantry organizer basket from Container Store for $17.99 and it is the perfect size to store our 6 Divided Keepers in the fridge lined up vertically and the kiddos' water bottles right beside.) I used my label maker to label each kids' name on two of the containers -- now they just have to grab one box which has ALL of their food in it, water bottle, and ice pack & they are on their way... and I can make lunches every other night now instead of every night. I never thought I'd be this excited about food containers, but as a single full-time working mama of a 9-year-old and a pair of 8-year-old twins, these products have made one area of my life that was a constant uphill battle practically a breeze! I feel the urge to tell everyone I know about these containers!! lol
