My Friendly Lunchbox
If there is one memory of packed lunches which remains from my childhood it is the faint taste of plastic and banana which tainted the food. Frustrated by leaking containers and a poor selection of BPA, PVC and phthalate free lunch products on the market, Mama Anna set about finding out what the rest of the world had to offer. Realising that there was a gap in the UK market for a website offering safe, leak-proof and waste free products for packed lunches Anna founded My Friendly Lunchbox.
My Friendly Lunchbox has everything you need to pack a lunch. There are lunch bags, boxes, containers, sandwich wrappers and water bottles. All of the products are free from BPA, PVC and phthalates. Everything has been tested to ensure it is leak-proof and practical and above all reduces waste. We were sent some of the products to check out and I have to say we were higly impressed.
Having previously relied on a series of variously sized tubs and pots to house Milla’s playgroup lunch inside her bag we are now in love with the Easy Lunchbox. The Easy Lunchbox (above) is a compartmentalised box which is the perfect size to fit any number of lunch combinations inside. It comes in a set of four (which is handy for those like me who are always behind on washing up) and costs £14.50 for a set. Their wrappers are ingenious and completely do away with the need for cling film or tin foil in lunch boxes. Milla has found them easy to fold and seal so if your child wants to save some for later they shouldn’t have a problem. Their range of Onya Bottles come in two sizes and have a range of lids you can buy the right kind for your child. Of course they will need something to carry their lunch in and keep it cool and My Friendly Lunchbox have a nice selection of lunch bags. The Easy Lunchbox bags are a little larger than regular insulated lunch bags and come in a range of colours. Their Crocodile Creek range are closer to traditional school lunchboxes and without a doubt Kids Konserve wins on style.
Hooray for My Friendly Lunchbox who have made packing lunch that little bit easier.
