I purchased these as gifts for my children but they're really gifts for myself too because it makes packing their lunches so much easier! My daughter loves mac and cheese for lunch but always complained that it was too cold by lunch time - we wasted so much food because she wouldn't eat it. My son is a super picky eater but he'll eat soups and clam chowder has the high caloric content he needs. I love these containers because they keep food warm and don't leak. They are easy for the kids to use and look attractive.
