Wondering if you could please give me some suggestions.
My dd takes a salad to school each day with a small amount of dressing on it.
Just lately the containers have been leaking ever so slightly. Causing oily book syndrome!
Can you suggest really sturdy leak proof containers that can handle the dishwasher and been thrown into school bags?
We are currently using the red decor ones. Which used to be ok but not so much now.

Maybe a screw on lid one? There are decent number of stainless steel ones out there.

We use sistema.
They have a salad container which comes with a little tub for dressing, so it can be applied when ready to eat.
No leakage issues so far but they do also go into lunch cooler bags!

I send sauces in the screw-lid sistema containers. Could you send the dressing separately for him?

Decor have a different range in Woolies and Coles. The Woolies ones are apparently leakproof. I have Coles ones and the lids sometimes warp.

I use a Beetbox glass lunch bowl and case. It's lovely to eat from, very functional, and never leaks. The sleeve that holds it all together and ensures the no-leak property requires some dexterity to get on. I doubt it would work for a younger child but could be ideal for a teen.

Make sure you use a cooler bag as an added layer of protection.

We use Lock & Lock for the salad and the add a small Sistema plastic jar or Sistema small squeeze bottle (getting hard to find in store) and my kids add the dressing at lunch.
70% of our plastics are Lock & Lock.

I use Nude Food Movers. I know they often get put down but it's have been great. Some are on their fourth year. I don't have the salad bowls but I have pretty much everything else including a leak proof bento box and chiller yogurt pot which have rubber seals and really don't leak. I put them through the dishwasher.
