The concept of measured containers for packed lunches and food storage is a good one. These container have secure cold packs and are bright and aesthetically pleasing and I was excited to try them. HOWEVER, I DO NO RECOMMEND THEM as the lids do not fit tightly and they leak like a sieve. The lids are hard to put on. I was told they were "leak resistant" (lol) which means that if they are not completely upright, the liquid contents will not pour out all at once but only drip out a drop at a time, I guess. I put lentil soup in it and it soaked all the other items in my lunch. I could see something like this for dry hard veggies like carrots, cauliflower, and snap peas, but don't put in anything like pineapple or canned mandarin oranges or you will have a mess. That being said they did allow me to return for a full refund and sent a shipping label to do it. The customer service rep did tell me that the "kid" containers ARE leakproof and are the same thing except brighter colors, so I think I am going to try them. They appear to include the ice packs also.
