Compartmentalized Awesomeness

The Munchkins are a little quirky.
I know. Shocker, right?
So lately they've been big into packing their own lunch, which rather puts me in the mood to hyperventilate, because last week Mr. Man tried to slip out of the door with one package of pudding and a plastic spoon and a can of coke...which is a fantastic lunch in my book, but not so much in the IPS & State Board of Health's book.

The funny thing about the Munchkin's lunches is they all have a variety of requirements...
Baz has to have at least two kinds of chips & one kind of fruit, but nothing can touch
Isabelle has to have a sandwich every day, but doesn't want it to touch her chips or her dessert
Sophie just begs to pack one, so I usually end up packing her a "snack" to eat in the care on the way to school so she doesn't feel completely left out.
But the time these requirements have all been met, I've usually forgotten to pack MY lunch.
So to say we're all struggling  in this particular department is pretty much the understatement of the year.

And then [drum roll please] I found THESE
These babies are awesome.

I ordered them Friday. They came in the mail Tuesday. I unpacked them Wednesay and by Thursday morning Baz was dancing around the room with his, isabelle had packed her own and one for me (hence the 1st grade lunch photo above...because it totally is...) and sophie was. well. she was drumming on hers. But Still! Harmony in lunch-packing has been ACHIEVED! I feel like I should hear a barrage of digital coins or discover I've unlocked a new level or something...
Check 'em out. They're sturdy plastic with interchanging lids. They're not totally leak proof, but hey! That's what Glad Press'nSeal was made for, right?!
Best of all? Everything COMPARTMENTALIZED! Just like a Lunchable...only reusable...and with brighter colors...and healthier food...and pretty much more all around awesomeness.
I'm trying my best not to sound like an infomercial here, but I seriously want to kiss the feet of the women who designed there. And you all KNOW how I feel about feet.
So there you go. There's my two cents.
If your kids are quirky [read slightly OCD about their food touching] you need to pick up a couple of these. They're worth their weight in gold.

Four containers of AWESOMENESS!
