#2. He pointed out that some brands are less about function and more about fad. Lately some great products have come out and many folks join the bandwagon w/o thinking about what they really need. Personally, I love the bento boxes! If I worked outside the home and took a lunch, I'd totally get one.

But he helped me identify what our son needed. (Who says hubbies/dads don't know anything!)
What does DS need?
1. Easy open
2. No pieces to be responsible for
3. Simplicity
4. Just 3 compartments; One for the sandwich and two for sides.
Does he care about cute little containers each with their own lid? Nope.

These fit our bill perfectly. Certainly not the right choice for everyone. But we're happy and I'm just spreading the word!
