Gerber Graduates Mealtime Organizer Review

Last week I wrote about packing my daughter’s lunch in the Gerber Graduates Mealtime Organizer.  I thought I would do a review on it to let you all know how much I love this product.

Pros:

  • I found it at Wal-Mart for a little over $6.  That’s a great price for such a sturdy box. It comes in two colors, red and blue.  We have one of each color.
  • BPA free.  This is important to me since it’s made of plastic.
  • Solid construction – this box is pretty sturdy.  It would take a lot to break it.
  • Separate compartments make packing different foods a breeze.  I don’t have to worry about food touching if I don’t want them too. One of the smaller sections has its own leak proof lid.  It’s great to keep runny foods, like applesauce or yogurt, in place.
  • It comes with a hinged lid.  This means no lids to lose. And, it stays down flat when open, unlike other lunch boxes that have hinged lids.
  • Picture frame section to personalize your box – I put a picture of my daughter and I in her box along with her name so everyone knows that it is her box.  She loves it.
  • Hidden cubby underneath picture or note area – This is the perfect spot to put an ice pack, silverware, napkin, or one of those squeeze fruits.

Cons:

  • The leak proof lid on the inner section is difficult for a small child to remove.  It’s easy enough for any adult to take off, but my 4-year-old couldn’t be trusted to do it without spilling the contents of the box everywhere.
  • The hidden cubby sits down into the main section and takes up part of the depth. This means you can’t pack taller food items in the main section.  Thinner sandwiches will fit just fine but nothing much over an inch or so will fit.  It’s not a huge issue if you get creative with how you cut and arrange each item.

Overall I love this bento style lunch box.  One of the 4.25 size juice boxes even fit perfectly into the smaller sections. This means I can pack everything into the box including a drink.  We use this lunch box every day and haven’t had any complaints with it at all.
