I love Facebook. Why? Because you discover the coolest stuff while stalkingglancing at friends'?? pages. Case in point.
Lunch case, in this particular instance.
I saw a conversation between two friends about this '??cool new metal lunchbox.'? Of course since I'??m nosey curious, I had to see what they were talking about.
These friends of mine weren'??t lying. PlanetBox is out of this world. Known as '??lunch transportation for the green generation,'? this combines a good old-fashioned stainless steel with a futuristic design for a fun lunch time. Read: it'??s safer than plastic containers for both your kids and the earth.
PlanetBox is a thin, flat container with the perfect size separate compartments for the basic food groups'??the veggie/fruit compartment holds ¾ cup of cut up foods, the long compartment is great for a variety of foods, the main dish is for sandwiches. There'??s even a little tiny compartment for a special after-meal treat, and a mesh area to hold an ice pack if needed. Two dipper containers are perfect for messy foods like pasta salads (in the larger one) and dips like ranch dressing or ketchup (in the smaller).

You can also carry it along in its own zippered bag that'??s independently certified to be safe from lead, phthalates and BPA. There'??s a spot for a water bottle and the perfect pouch for the dipper containers.
How did I switch my daughter'??s Disney Princess lunchbox with PlanetBox without struggle? She can decorate the PlanetBox herself with the magnets'??fish, rock star, rockets, kitties and more.
We plan on using it for school lunches, road trips and camping. It'??s much pricier than the soft, bendable lunchboxes out there. I'??m actually ok with this, since I know it'??ll last a lot longer than her puffy material lunchbox. Now that's out of this world.
PlanetBox is available for $50 at www.planetbox.com.
