At this time of year we pause to count our blessings and think about the things we are truly grateful for. Each year, without hesitation, we talk about how grateful we are to have such amazing and supportive customers. You remind us daily of the great fortune we have to be able to create products that help you and others live a healthier life. We love hearing from you and are thankful for your efforts as it helps us to continually work toward improvement.

May the good things in life be yours in great abundance!

With much gratitude,
From Our Desk To Yours
The holidays are knocking at our door (along with gravy, mashed potatoes, pie, and all the best foods!), and we know it can be challenging to eat balanced meals at this time of year. Portion control is one of the ways to indulge, without the guilt. Our Portion Perfect Bento Box can help you manage your diet during the holidays! It even comes with 100+ perfectly portioned menu ideas, tips for weight loss success and a free iPhone lunch app to keep you inspired and on track!


Another reason to love November - it's National Peanut Butter Lovers month! Celebrate by adding some to your favorite baked treat, your morning oatmeal, or by simply grabbing a spoon and eating it straight from the jar (no judegment here!). If you're looking for some ideas, check out these peanut butter recipes on Pinterest. You won't be dissapointed!


November is known for giving thanks, so it's very fitting that we also celebrate Veteran's Day during the same month. We here, at Laptop Lunches, would like to say "THANK YOU!" to all the men and women who have served, along with their mothers, fathers, children, family and friends. It's a huge sacrifice, and we can't express how much we appreiate it. From all of us - THANK YOU!!!

"I'm a Canadian mum of 5 trying to pack waste-free school lunches for my picky eaters that are both fun for me to make & for them to eat. I love our Laptop Lunches bento boxes for their versatility, durability, & fun colours! I blog my family's bento lunches at BentOnBetterLunches."

The author of “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” Sarah Josepha Hale, is the same person responsible for establishing Thanksgiving as a national holiday. With the help of president Abraham Lincoln, Thanksgiving was declared a national holiday on October 3, 1863. Check out the full story, and other fun facts about Thanksgiving below!

"I wanted a more convenient system for packaging lunches. This product allows for efficient packing with leak-proof options. I like the mix and match options over the pre-determined sizes of other bentos."

-- Jeanne Powers, Syracuse, NY

"Love how compact this is and how I am able to ration the food I consume."
