Food Movers Rubbish Free Lunch Box Containers for Kids
Food Mover Lunch Box
Cost of the Food Mover Lunch Box by Smash
Lunch box: $9-$12
Colored Cool Neoprene Skin: $9-$12
I went to OfficeMax to get our last couple school supplies and stumbled upon a totally cool looking lunch box. Food Movers are rubbish and BPA free lunch boxes created by Smash.
I purchased both the lunch box as well as the neoprene skin which serves as the cover and helps keep the lunch fresh. All the compartments of the lunch box will store the necessary foods for my kids and I will not need to use sandwich bags or random tupperware that my kids end up throwing out.
What I love most is that my kids have fun packing their lunches and I know that I am not being wasteful.
Three Compartment of the Food Mover Lunch Box
How Does the Food Movers Lunch Box Work?
The Food Mover lunch box has 3 compartments, each with an easy to open latch. The left side compartment comes with two containers. The middle compartment holds a sandwich with a protector so it does not get smashed. The right compartment has a removable divider.

How Do We Pack Our Kids' Lunches in the Food Movers Lunchbox?
My oldest set of twins are in second grade and we have chosen that our children pack healthy lunches to take to school. They can easily pack their own lunches using this lunchbox and here are their top ways to pack the lunch box.
How Twin A packs the Food Mover lunch box:
Left compartment: Pack the orange container for four apples, remove the green container and replace it with a pudding.
Middle compartment: Pack a sandwich, place the guard on top the sandwich so it is not smashed and then place a piece of string cheese, a spoon and a piece of candy.
Right compartment: Pack a shelf stable milk.
How Twin B packs the Food Mover lunch box:
Left compartment: Use the orange container for four apples and use the green container for three carrots.
Middle compartment: Pack a sandwich, place the guard on top the sandwich so it is not smashed and then place a piece of string cheese on top.
Right compartment: Place the divider back in the right compartment. Put one piece of candy on one side of the divider and eight crackers on the other.
The food combination options are endless.
Where are Food Movers Currently Sold?
Can You Find Food Mover Products in the United States?
I live in Ohio and found our lunch boxes during a back to school promotion at OfficeMax. However, I have had a resounding number of people ask, “Where can I get one?” Our OfficeMax is out of stock and they said that they only carried the products as a back to school promotion.
I figured I would just look online and find more. I found it was not going to be that simple. Food mover products are sold by Smash, an Australian company, and they do not ship to the USA yet.
How will my American friends get their lunch boxes?
The company assured me that they are working on getting their foothold in American stores. They suggested we check the following stores:
Office Max: Some Office Max locations might still have leftovers from the back to school promotion.
HEB in Texas: HEB locations stock the three piece pack of Rubbish Free Lunch Box, skin and bottle.
Office Depot: Office Depot will be stocking a couple of the products for the foreseeable future. They are due to receive their shipment by Thanksgiving 2012.
Walgreens: Walgreen has the highest number of stores carrying products but will only carry the meal box and the sandwich box.
Food Movers is hoping that the interest generated by the customers, such as me, will be enough that the retailers can see the advantage in stocking the products and enable them to get a permanent presence on American shelves.
We Hope to See More Food Movers Soon!
I will continue to keep my eye out for Food Mover lunch boxes at a local, US level.
If you happen to find them near you, please let me know!
In the meantime, my kids enjoy their Food Mover lunch boxes because they have a very cool design and I feel good about not adding trash (or rubbish) to the bins at school.
