Review: Sunsella Buddy Box

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was so excited to be able to review the Sunsella Buddy Box, which is a bento-style box with 3 compartments. First of all, I want to say that the compartments are all nicely sized so that I can give hearty portions of fruits and vegetables in them. I can, fit in a sandwich made on wide loaf pan bread in the larger compartment, which I really appreciate since that is the type of bread I use. The lids snap on easily and stay in place and keep the food from touching each other. I love that they are are BPA-free, so I feel good about serving food to my kids in them.

My daughter eats lunch 2-3 times a week and by using a bento-style box I am able to just grab 2 pieces, the container and the lid, and assemble her lunch. Previously, I was searching for 6 different pieces since I prefer to use re-useable containers and not use baggies if I do not have to.

The picture above was taken when I was heading to a park playgroup with my son that afternoon and my daughter was eating lunch from home at school I just lined them up and put in carrots, sliced strawberries, sandwiches (my kids tend to only eat a 1/2 a sandwich when I make them on wide loaf pan bread) and pretzels.

Today I sent my daughter to school with a similar looking lunch of strawberries, a full PBJ sandwich (her request today) and cucumber slices. The bento style box make it easy to send enough food choices to eat and appropriate sized servings.

My kids love that they can just open up the lid and see all of their food at once.

You can buy your own set of 4 Sunsella Buddy Boxes on Amazon. At the time of this post they were listed for $13.99, which I think is a wonderful deal.

I bet my kids would like this too. Sending strawberries is a good idea, they're all over the place this time of year (and hurrah for it).

This is not only good for kids lunches. It would be great to take to the office or if you are doing a lot of driving that day. You could just pull over-park and eat. Much better then stopping at the nearest fast food place!

This would be great for my hubby. He sometimes has to take lunch with him, because he is out of office and so this box would be great for that.

I love bento boxes, especially if they come in cute designs and colors. :)

I just bought a new bento box like this and I paid $10 just for one. We love it, so I think I will go buy this 4 pack. That's a great price!

These are really nice. Makes the food so much more appetizing and more likely to get eaten! And safe, too. I would like to use them for picnics and snacks, too!

I like the different compartments. This would be great for us, especially if you have mashed potatoes and gravy! Or something like that.

I love that you are thinking about healthy snacks and a healthy lunch, and that you are using your creativity (as well as a great product) to make it happen. Kudos!

I love that it can keep foods completely separate.
