Reusable food jars offer a nice alternative to plastic bags or sandwich boxes. A modern design on the lunch box, some are just simple stainless steel containers, or upgrade to more innovative designs. Food jars are a pretty modern invention, which have been designed to let you take portable lunches like soup, which obviously are not suitable for reusable food wraps or eco-friendly lunchboxes.
The history of lunch pots dates back to the ancient tradition of ‘Tiffin’ which still carries on today in India. The wives would make the pots for their husband, which would be delivered all over the country, for their spouses to enjoy a homemade lunch. Tiffin pots tend to be tiered, so you would open the top to find naan bread and then soup, rice and other dishes are stacked underneath.
