I remember the days when I worked out of an office. I had the whole cubicle and everything! It was rare that I actually brought food from home to eat for lunch the next day. I ate out for lunch quite often and had my favorite fast food restaurants to visit when I was hungry. I know I must have been eating so many calories when I did that!

Are you in that same situation and looking for a way to cut costs and eat a better-balanced meal? If so, you need to check out the Rubbermaid balance Meal Kit! It’s a great kit and so convenient!

Eating out means extra calories. In fact, did you know that a restaurant lunch averages about 827 calories? Yikes! Packing your own lunch can be better for you and cut down on money spent on food. With so many healthy foods to choose from today, there’s no limit to the tastefully nutritious meals you can pack. Remember, no one food will give you all the nutrients your body needs, so be sure to choose a variety of foods.

The Rubbermaid balance Meal Kit has four containers that are precisely-sized and color-coded for each main food group. With the balance Meal Kit, you can feel confident that even on-the-go, every lunch is a healthy lunch. Now on shelves in stores, the Rubbermaid balance Meal Kit takes the guesswork out of portion control for the four essential food groups: protein, grains, fruit and vegetables.


  • Specifically portioned – each container holds a proper serving size to create one balanced meal
  • No need to measure – pre-portioned protein, grain, fruit and vegetable containers
  • All-in-one solution – convenient carry box for healthy meals on-the-go
  • Microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe
  • BPA-free

Purple For Protein

Proteins make you feel fuller for longer and are essential to your body’s growth. Each kit comes with a purple portioned container for the 5-1/2 to 6 ounces of protein you should be eating daily.

Orange For Grain

Grains help control your appetite and regulate your blood sugar levels to keep your energy up. The orange portioned container makes sure you get your 6 to 8 ounces of whole grains each day.

Red For Fruit

Adding fruit to your day is easy. Fill the red portioned container with 1-1/2 to 2 cups of fresh fruit for a healthier, tastier and nutrient-rich snack.

Green For Vegetable

Veggies are low in calories and high in nutrients. The green portioned container lets you fit the 2-3 cups of vegetables you need each day of the week.

    I’d like to try something like this with my picky-eater daughter. If left to her own devices, she’d eat nothing by dairy and starch. A visual demonstration of the different foods in a balanced diet, and making a game of figuring out what can go in which spot, might help…
