Choosing the right Lunchbox for your Kids.

When it comes to Lunchboxes there are a MASSIVE variety out there and we know how overwhelming it can become, trying to choose the best one for your child. 
We have decided to make it a little easier for you this year, by putting together this blog, explaining each of the brands of lunchboxes we stock and what kind of eater we think they would be suitable for. 
Lets not waste time and get stuck into it! 
Things to consider when choosing a lunchbox.
(What is important to you personally.)
Is the Lunchbox:
  • BPA-Free – this is a big one, the lunchbox needs to be safe to store food inside.
  • Seals Fresh – These lunch boxes seal tight to keep unwrapped food inside fresh. 
  • Ease of cleaning – Is there seperate parts to wash, how easy are they to clean ect. 
  • Compartments – boxes that have lots of sections for different foods.
  • Size – this is important as it needs to fit into school bags, coolers bags or fridges. Small children also need to be able to carry them. 
  • Sustainable  – ie; going to last and reduce the need for single use plastics.
  • Dishwasher safe – dishwasher vs hand wash is a big decision.
