Last summer we received a set of modern glass food storage containers from Wean Green. At first glance the fantastic colors won me over! However, it was the size of the Wean Green containers that really took the cake. The new collection includes Lunch Cubes, Wean Tubs, Wean Cubes, Snack Cubes and Wean Bowls. The 16.5 ounce Lunch Cubes are the perfect size for main meal like, sandwiches, salads, wraps, or roll ups. The Wean Tubs hold 5.1 ounces which is great for fruit, veggies, or cheese sticks. The Snack Cubes and Wean Bowls each hold 7 ounces and are perfect for yogurt, granola or pretzels. The Wean Cubes holds 4 ounces and is a great container for dips or salad dressing.
The smaller sizes of the Wean Green containers ensure that they stack perfectly inside his lunchbox with room for his water bottle too! And it has helped us keep his portions within the recommended amounts, reducing his lunch food waste. Last year, we were sending much larger glass containers that were heavy, bulky, didn’t fit well in his lunchbox, and would come home with a lot of uneaten food.
Wean Green containers are made out of tempered glass (which is 5x stronger than regular glass, so I don’t have to worry too much about breakage, boys drop things!) with polypropylene plastic lids that are BPA, phthalate and PVC free. These watertight lids have a silicone airtight seal that snaps closed, so there is never leaking! Hooray for no leaking! And since they can go in the freezer or microwave, they are really the perfect all around food storage.
