Cub Scout day camp lunch #2 - Lock & Lock box

I went with the "four square" Lock & Lock box for Ethan's lunch today. Not exactly "bento", but it makes for a fast and easy waste-free lunch. As much as I love the bells and whistles and creativity of dabbling in bento lunches, at the heart of it my main goal is always a litter-free lunch. :)
Cub Scout camp lunch day 2

Fishie crackers, pickles, cereal bar and homemade granola bite, raspberries.

Not pictured: Thermos Funtainer of ice cold grape juice, Gatorade and a huge bottle of ice water on a lanyard.

It's HOT and yesterday's Cub Scout activities left the poor boy dangerously close to severe dehydration. :( Hoping today he will be more cognizant of drinking water. Though I had given him a mommy lecture Monday morning about drinking water throughout the day, nothing could have sent home that message as strongly as him feeling like complete crapola for the rest of day like he did yesterday. If he's not in better shape after today's camp I'm not sure he will attend the rest of the week. Sigh.

Hi there. Do you find the Funtainers keep beverages cold longer than others? My very-nearly-4yo will be going to OT two days a week and needing snacks/bev.
Thank you for your always motivating posts and creative food ideas. I read your posts everyday and am inspired to keep on truckin'. So thanks!

The Funtainers really do keep things cold for a long time! What I do is unscrew the lid and fill the bottle with ice to the top and then water and leave that sitting in the fridge overnight. In the morning I dump it out and pour out the ice & water and fill with whatever the beverage is (usually milk during the school year) and my son reports it's still nice and cold at lunchtime! For Cub Scout camp I added a couple ice cubes to the grape juice and even though his lunchbox was out in the heat all morning he still had ice in the juice when they ate. I love Thermos products - they're great! :)

Tricia, I use orange blossom honey. :)

I have this Lock N Lock without the dividers. Today I learned that you can use the cups that baby food comes in (Gerber 2.5oz containers). You can fit two in if you want the lid on or three if you dont use the lid.
