When it comes to kids’ lunches and convenience, it’s kind of hard to beat juice boxes. Plus they’re the perfect serving size, especially for what seems to be the six-minute lunch break that my kids claim to have. (Or maybe that’s just an excuse for not finishing the broccoli?)
With more than 4 billion hard-to-recycle juice boxes a year reportedly hitting the trash, the Juice in the Box is a nice earth-friendly alternative and a clear money saver. Plus it’s supposedly spill proof, and definitely squirt proof. But beyond that, if you or your kids have a favorite drink that doesn’t come in handy juice box form, I love that you can now make it one. Just like magic.
I will say that while it’s top rack dishwasher-safe, I still try to hand wash my plastic stuff, and only occasionally give it a full-cycle spin. Also, the retail site really needs to change the description of Tritan plastic (the same kind used in Nalgene or CamelBak bottles) so it doesn’t claim that it’s “chemical-free.” Ain’t no such thing. Still, very cool product. I’d get two.
