As a salesman who is in his vehicle a lot, my hubby finds it difficult to take leftovers to work for lunch. He's often on the road and doesn't have a way to warm his food up. When we're traveling, I have also run into the same problem with food for Kaelyn. Thankfully, I have been introduced to Warmables and couldn't be happier!
A family of three who are focused on what they eat, realized how important it was to provide their school age son a healthier alternative to the lunches he was being served at school. Given their love for fresh, healthy food...they decided to find a way to pack nutritious lunches which could be kept warm until lunchtime...and so, Warmables was born.
Warmables products were created to give people a way of keeping healthy lunches warm for an extended period of time. It started with Warmables for kids and now includes Warmables for the office and 5 pit bag products. The Warmables lunch systems are delivered as 3 or 4 piece sets (the Warmables pouch, liner, a BPA-free food container and a cherry pit bag) and do not produce any garbage at all! Now parents of children who eat lunch at school, and adults who pack lunches have an environmentally friendly and convenient way to keep healthy meals warm for 4-6 hours.
Some of the benefits to using Warmables include:
- healthier school lunches
- saving money
- fighting childhood obesity, a growing problem in the US
- environmentally friendly (does not produce any garbage)
When I received the product I was immediately impressed. I had no idea that each piece would be such good quality. The Warmables pouch acts as the insulator and is made with layers of various cotton and polyester fabrics which are then lined with nylon.
The BPA-free plastic food storage container holds up to 16 oz. of food and does not leak. It is safe to heat and store meals in as well which is very important to me.
The cherry pit bag is an old trick used before the time of modern heating systems. It helps to keep your child's (or your) lunch warm.
To use Warmables, you just fill the plastic container with food, heat it in the microwave and put the container with its hot contents into the Warmables pouch. You then heat the provided cherry pit bag in the microwave, but it in the Warmables pouch, seal it and put in your child's insulated lunch box.
We have had the opportunity to use Warmables several times already. It's so simple to use, and the fact that it helps us to keep healthy meals warm is one of the best parts! No more eating out at fast food restaurants when on the road or while hubby is at work. I am really thrilled to have been introduced to this product, not only because it enables us to eat healthier by keeping food warm, but it also helps to save money and reduces garbage. I would definitely recommend the Warmables for Kids lunch system. I am very interested in trying the Warmables for the office at some point as well....it would be perfect for my husband.
