Slimline Quaddie Lunchbox
Great "green" item for kids
I understand how the person below said it's hard to wash, we have been using this for over year now and honestly, it took me a while to get used to washing it. BUT I have to say, after you get used to it, it's very simple. It saves a lot of room in my dishwasher by not having multiple containers.
My both kids have one, we use daily. I wash it at night, let it air dry and the morning, pack lunch. They get fresh fruit or veg in one compartment, a snack like pretzels or trail mix in another, then in the big one they get a sandwich or some other flat item like pupusa or taquitos, maybe with cheese stick or yogurt tube. It fits enough food for lunch if you include a morning snack separately (my kids are 11 and 6). It fits in their backpacks but I am curious to see if it'll still fit when my son goes to Middle School next year (my guess is no).
The drink bottle that comes with it IS a pain to clean, I suggest you clean it right away or put in dishwasher or be less green and use a juicebox (they fit in the juice compartment).

I registered for the container store just to review this product. Mostly because I saw a lot of reviews having trouble cleaning it. When you put this in the dishwasher the flip up lids on top are removable, and the top compartments detach from the bottom one so that everything can go in the dishwasher separately. Take one lid at a time and open it all the way & just lift up. It pops right out. detaching the bottom compartments from the top is a little more tricky but a little twist & pull & it comes apart. And goes back together just as easily.

Works well and good for the environment
As a mother of school age children I am concerned with the amount of waste is created with all the wrappers from their lunches. This takes care of that waste because you don't need sandwich bags or juice boxes. Also, instead of having to buy food individually packed for lunches, you can buy large quantities and separate into each of their lunches. My kids also enjoy the fact that they have a different lunch box then any of their friends.
