What I'm loving right now are...
And no, this is not a sponsored post. I actually bought these over the weekend at the SM Department Store. Got them for half the price, thanks to the four-day Independence Day Sale.
My brother, who brings his own lunch to work every so often, introduced me to Lock&Lock. A few months back, he showed me his really cool, 'super airtight', and 'absolutely spill-proof' food keeper. I was quite impressed with its features, particularly its spill-proof quality that I decided to buy some for myself.
For Yue, actually, since these are for meant for his snacks, which he will bring to school.

Wonder what that 0.05g means?
That's the Water Vapor Transmission Rate (WVTR), which is a test level that determines the product's airtightness. The lower the value of the WVTR, the better the airtightness. And when a container is airtight, food stays fresh and well-preserved.

So don't be surprised if I got Yue these 'adult-looking' containers and not those Ben10 or Angry Birds lunch box sets. They could be laden with BPA and melamine for all I know.
Eco-friendly moms (like me!) would be glad to know that Lock&Lock is a 'green premium' product. Its 'BISFree' line is made from Tritan, a newly developed copolyester which reduces CO2 in manufacturing, is BPA-free, and 100% recyclable.
While Lock&Locks may be a tad pricier than the usual microwaveable food containers, at least I am guaranteed that they're safe for my child, and for the environment, too. Next time they go on sale, I'm buying more of these babies. I'm eyeing the BISFree 10-piece set and the 18-piece Nestables! :)
