Since we homeschool our younger kiddos, we try to make every day as exciting as possible for them. This usually means picnic lunches outdoors, field trips to the zoo, museums, or even just one of our many local parks. The NE Ohio area has a wealth of activities for families, so we try to take full advantage of them. There's so much to do and see, and it helps keep learning fun and engaging for my kids.
Being out and about so regularly means someone is bound to get hungry, as is often the case with little ones. We always make sure to pack lunches to take with us whenever we're on the go. This is itself can be a challenge, since the kids' lunchboxes suffer a lot of spills, smears, and mystery goo being found on them. Sometimes, we have to resort to using paper bags because the lunch boxes need to be cleaned.
The folks at Rubbermaid have an awesome new solution for those who eat a lot of meals on the go....Like us!
Rubbermaid’s Fasten+ Go makes it easier than ever to take your lunch with you to work and helps with easy preparation for dinner after a long day. Their new line of products found here are your all-in-one solution for taking your meals on the go. No more spillage, no more excuses and no more unnecessary money spent on take out!
We received a nice assortment of Rubbermaid’s Fasten+ Go products to check out for ourselves. Included were the Sandwich Kit, Entree Kit, and Soup Kit. These containers come in a variety of colors, so you could get a set for every member of the family! There are also individual components for sale to have extras on hand.
Each kit is a modular system features an outer lid that snaps to the bottom base so that all of the inner containers stay secure during transit. Rubbermaid® Fasten + Go™, the all-in-one solution for taking lunch on-the-go. There is also a removable strap that not only provides secure one-handed carrying, it also eliminates the need for a separate bag.
Here are the features of the Rubbermaid Fasten+ Go products:
Our Thoughts :
We've been totally loving these great lunch solutions from the folks at Rubbermaid.
I love the Entree Kit especially, since it allows so much space to carry a full meal. As you can see, there's a large main compartment where you could store a big salad or entree, as well as companion compartments that can hold condiments, nuts, or other small portions of food. These would come in very handy for those worried about proper portion control!
The Sandwich Kit is another favorite of ours. The kids love their sandwiches, and this system allows me to pack not only a sandwich, but also a few snacks. Thanks to the strap, these components stay nicely in place until it's time to eat.
We also love the soup kit, but I have to admit, we haven't gotten much use out of it yet. Here in Ohio, it's been ridiculously hot, so we haven't been having much soup lately. I did make a batch of soup just to try it out, and I was definitely very impressed by how well this works. The soup doesn't leak, and you can even store crackers, croutons, or even cheese in the smaller of the compartments.
Overall, we really enjoy taking our Rubbermaid Fasten+ Go kits with us when we hit the road for some educational fun. The straps make them so easy to carry, and the lids are very secure so nothing leaks or spills. (Even when a child is swinging the container around wildly, which my Xander loves to do!) I love the durability and functionality of these products, and they certainly make it easy to resist the temptation of expensive, unhealthy takeout or fast food.
If your family is on the go like mine is, I would definitely recommend checking these out. They're a great solution for the kids, for commuters, or even for those who are trying to reign in portion sizes and commit to a healthier diet.
