After testing them out over the summer (meaning my kids accidentally dropping them countless times), these hold up beautifully with no threat of breaking. I love that there will be no hint of plastic or metal taste in my children's water. We only pack water for our kids lunches (no juice). They are dishwasher safe and I love that you can see into them to be sure they are nice and clean.
There's nothing like opening a thermos full of warm, homemade soup to taste a little bit of home while away. It's also one of the most healthy, protein-filled dishes you can nourish your body with, not to mention how incredibly frugal it is.
I started the year with these unbleached muffin liners and then came across these reusable beauties. Muffins are awesome for packed lunches (here are some of my grain-free recipes). These liners are safe to bake with (up to 500º) and they also come in handy as food dividers in the large section of the bento, as seen below (with the disposable kind, before I discovered these guys).

There you have it, folks. This is how we are keeping packed lunches waste-free and healthy. Do you have anything to add to this? This school lunch rookie is always looking for tips.
