This is a Joint Review and Giveaway of the Insulated Lunch Bag and Bynto Lunchbox Container from Goodbyn between Natural Parents Network and A Little Bit of All of It.

Goodbyn Insulated Lunch Bag and Bynto

About Goodbyn

A small company in Naperville, IL, Goodbyn set out on a mission to reinvent how kids eat lunch and to develop products that solved the one-time-use packaging dilemma. The Bynto is a wonderfully designed lunchbox container made up of three compartments to keep food separated. Now you can pack juicy foods in right next to your dry foods and not worry about it getting mushy and flavors are kept separate as well! Pair the Bynto with the super cool Insulated Lunch Bag (which it fits in perfectly) and you are set! The Insulated Lunch Bags have neat kid-friendly designs while also catering to the practical. There’s a place for a drink on the side, a pocket inside for an ice pack, an outside pocket for a napkin and closes with a zipper and flap. You can even pull out the liner for cleaning ease.

Our Experience

Although my four-year-old is not in school at this time, we frequently pack a lunch to eat out and about. Because of this, the Goodbyn Insulated Lunch Bag is perfect for us! We typically leave the house in the morning and eat a little later in the afternoon so keeping cold foods cold is important. I love the pocket for a drink and the sturdy handle. It’s easy for my daughter to hang on to and also has the option of unbuckling so you could throw it on your diaper bag or a stroller if you use one. I love that the designs are fun and kid-friendly but are not branded characters. And the fact you can pull out the liner to clean is ingenious, an awesome feature!

Goodbyn ByntoThe Bynto lunchbox container sure is handy! I love that instead of multiple bags and little containers, I can just use one container but still keep food separated. The Bynto fits perfectly in the Insulated Lunch Bag while still leaving room to fit in some other bags/containers if you need to. The Bynto is not completely leak proof so it’s not recommended to put something like soup in it, but dips and thick sauces should be just fine. The 3 compartments are generously sized with one being quite large (2.1 cups), then the middle a bit smaller (2 cups) and then the last being a smaller size (1-cup). They are deep as well. I really appreciate the easy on/off lid designed for little hands, too.

Goodbyn sells other smaller containers, bottles, and ice packs (made with water, not that scary blue stuff) as well as dishwasher-safe sticker sets! All of their containers are BPA and phthalate free and 100% recyclable.

Buy it!

You can purchase your own Insulated Lunch Bag and Bynto at Goodbyn for $19.49 for the bag and $9.50 for the Bynto. Other products range in price from $7.00 to $1.75.
