i pack my kids lunches and include soymilk. i am having extreme difficulty finding a container for the soymilk that is easy to clean and easy for them to drink from. i have been through sooo many dumb containers that, when purchased seemed as if they would fit the bill, and then dont! for those of you that send soymilk to school, what do you put it in? purchasing those individual aseptic soymilks is not an option for many reasons.

any help is appreciated!!!

I've used a screw-top food storage beaker for things like this. Works very well and easy to clean. Just like drinking from a cup.

These are US based with free shipping but a bit spendy

If you look around your local hardware or camping/backpacking store I'm sure you'll find screw-top containers.

Were the drippy ones of good quality with a screw top? Screw tops should not drip if sealed properly.

How about a small Klean Kanteen like this -> http://www.kleankanteen.com/2product...teen-12oz.html



You don't have to get it with the sippy cup top!! You can click through the pictures to see the other options. 12 oz seems like it would be a good size for a lunch drink, and the stainless steel shouldn't retain odors or anything.

i think its more that my kids didnt like the way it hit their mouths, or that they complain about everything!

fritemare--those look good but after time the soymilk is difficult to clean out. just gets stuck in the valve and you cannot clean it.

THANK YOU!

I don't use anything as snazzy as the containers Rabid-child linked. When I pack my drink with lunch I either reuse my soda/juice bottles a few times before recycling or use the bottle that came with my laptop lunchbox http://www.laptoplunches.com/cgi-bin...&preadd=action

see, in those bottles the milk gets stuck in the nozzley thing that you drink from. i noticed after a while that this was happening after i THOUGHT i had cleaned them well, but then would see milk curdles oozing out!! ick--surprised my kids arent dead!!lol

i have tried soaking them but still...

I went to Target today, and they have a LOT of cups that would probably work. I couldn't find pictures on their website of them unfortunately. They were pretty much adult sippy cups though.

I saw those, too. They have a huge portable lunch/picnic section at the moment. It was hard for me not to buy a bunch of stuff I don't need. For some reason, I love containers.



Other bottles ...

I like just about everything by Thermos.



This site is great (and includes the Kleen Kanteen products a previous poster mentioned):

The Nalgene bottles are top rack dishwasher safe. There's more information and choices on this nalgene site:

Amazon has a few reusable bottles that aren't too pricey. Look up Kleen Kanteen ($13) and New Wave Enviro ($6.99) bottles.
