There are SO many great lunch boxes out there to choose from! We found a great one called EasyLunchboxes that my husband actually ended up using!
KELLY LESTER is the owner, creator, and mom behind Easylunchboxes.com. Though she is a singer and actress who can also turn a mean cartwheel, juggling is not one of her skills — except, of course, when it comes to her personal life. During the last two decades she has also been an entrepreneur, wife, and mother of three.
A graduate of UCLA's theatre department, Kelly has appeared in dozens of plays and musicals in the Los Angeles area. Kelly left show business for almost twelve years to found and run Art Plates, her own highly-successful gift manufacturing business and raise her three girls. Her handcrafted switchplates and soaps were sold in hundreds of museum stores across the country and direct to consumers via the Art Plates website.
After selling that business in 2006, Kelly defied the old adage that there are no second acts. In fact, sometimes there are actually many different acts. Since returning to performing, Kelly has appeared in a number of stage productions, films and TV shows. More about Kelly’s performing career HERE.
In her spare time, she enjoys listening to obscure musicals, and has an obsession with graphic design (especially fonts) and digital scrapbooking. When not in front of the computer, Kelly can be found in the kitchen preparing healthy lunches and dinners for her family (although she actually hates to cook and is actively engaged in teaching her daughters to take over the household culinary needs.)
Easylunchboxes.com was born out of Kelly’s innate ability to do things efficiently while on a shoestring budget, and her desire to send her daughters to school with simple, healthy food, with little to no extra packaging or ingredients. Her past struggle with weight control inspires her to teach and model healthy eating habits for her children, and has fueled her dedication to always send them off to school with a great lunch. Read about Kelly's healthy lifestyle on MOM TRENDS.
As a creative mom who knows how to makeover a lunch box, Kelly was recently hired to share tips and promote lunch box ingredients by Hellman's and Nestle, appearing in TV news segments seen across the country.
Kelly has been married to actor Loren Lester since 1988. They live in Woodland Hills, CA with their three daughters, Jenny, Lily, & Julia, and their dog, Albany.
EasyLunchbox Compartmentalized BPA-Free Plastic Food Storage Containers
Use our safe plastic containers for non-toxic food storage at home or on the road as part of the Easy Lunchbox System. EasyLunchbox divided food containers are custom designed so you can quickly pack a meal of healthy, economical, and varied food choices. Almost any menu can fit into the compartments. The large compartment is perfect for a sandwich or main entree. Use the two smaller sections for complimentary side dishes. Just one lid covers all the compartments and holds everything securely. No more time wasted looking for the right size plastic container & lid or baggie for every item you pack! And portion control is easy with our our safe food containers: just the right amount of food, without having to weigh or measure everything. I put the divided lunch containers on my counter at night, fill up all the compartments assembly line style with the next day’s lunch, snap on the lids, and stack the nesting boxes neatly in the fridge, ready for the morning race out the door. These are truly the best food containers for conquering morning chaos!
EasyLunchbox Divided Food Containers are Food-Safe!
Our safe lunch boxes are made of non-toxic, food-safe, polypropylene (PP or plastic #5). These are the top-choice safe food containers if you’re looking for BPA-free lunch boxes, phthalate-free lunch boxes and non-toxic lunch boxes.
Safe for refrigerator, freezer, microwave, & dishwasher!
We are proud to sell you our products and we think you’ll agree that they’re the best food storage containers you will find. They have met strict FDA requirements! Please click here for our full FDA approved test report.
EasyLunchboxes Food Storage Containers Offer Maximum Flexibility!
No more squished sandwiches and struggles trying to fit mismatched containers into oddly shaped carrying bags! The container fits perfectly inside our custom designed carrying bag. The best part? Unlike many other lunch box systems, there is plenty of room to add additional items inside the bag! Why be limited to just the 3 compartments if you want other items too? I like to send a container of yogurt along with a water bottle, a spoon and an ice block. When the weather gets colder, my girls’ favorite lunch is one that also includes a thermos of hot soup! There’s plenty of room for that, as well as the yogurt and other items! Although our EasyLunchbox containers hold food securely, they are not leakproof and we don’t recommend putting wet food into any of the compartments. That’s why we’ve made sure that there is plenty of room in the carrying bag to hold a thermos, or your choice of container for any items that contain liquid…your menu, your choices! On really busy days, consider packing two EasyLunchbox containers into one carrying bag for two packed ahead meals. There’s still room on top for an ice block to keep it all fresh for hours!
Not only do our EasyLunchbox containers save you time preparing lunch, their clean up is a snap! If you’re currently packing food items for each child in individual plastic containers, and if you have 3 kids like I do, that adds up to 18 different plastic tops and bottoms! Every day! What a mess in your dishwasher, not to mention having to match them all up to put away or reuse. Now that’s a real timewaster! (And don’t you just hate it when your kids lose a top or bottom to one of those little containers? Maybe that’s why you keep running out!) EasyLunchbox divided food containers will come home intact and are a breeze to clean! Only two pieces hold the same amount of food, so at the end of the day, for 3 kids, that’s a total of only 6 pieces in your dishwasher that can easily be matched up and put away quickly. And the different colored lids are perfect to remind you whos lunch is who’s, in case you have a picky eater, or need to give a child different food items based on dietary restrictions.
EasyLunchboxes Plastic Food Containers are Economical and Durable!
No more wasteful plastic baggies and individual snack size packages to purchase. Buy in bulk, pack only what you need for the day, and feel good about the money you save! Easylunchboxes are very sturdy and will stand up to months of daily use. Please click HERE for more durability info and safety facts.
Set of 4 Containers (4 Lids, 4 Bottoms) only $13.95!
Colorful Carrying Bag only $7.95!
We’ve priced our products affordably and offer the containers in a set of four so that you can have some on hand to use, while others are in the dishwasher. You can afford to purchase more than one set if you have a big family, and you'll always have enough on hand that are clean ready to use! When they’re not in use, Easylunch containers nest inside each other and take up very little space!
