Essentials & Equipment
Starting School: Lunch Boxes
With Milla starting school in little over a week I’m busy preparing uniform, kit, name-tapes *yawn yawn yawn* With no pencil case required I’m letting Milla express herself through her packed lunch.First up is something to carry everything in. Peanut & Pip have an amazing selection of lunch bags all of which are loved by children. l-r: Beatrix Fernando Bear Lunch Bag £20, Dabbawalla Sweetcakes Lunch Bag £22 (now available from Nest Natural Parenting Shop) and Skip Hop Bee Zoo Lunchie Bag £12.95.
If you don’t like messing around with ice packs then it’s worth having a look at PackIt at £14.99 from Trendy Kid. It has the cool packs built into the bag so you slip it in the freezer the night before and it is chilly by the morning. We have been using one for the last few weeks and it has kept our lunch cool on even the hottest days. I had been concerned it might sweat as it warmed up but not at all – a welcome change from our regular ice packs and worth overlooking the limited designs for.
Goodbyns and their smaller counterparts Byntos are very popular with the Bambino team and I know Milla and Saria will be heading to school with one each. They are a multi compartment lunch box which comes in bright colours with a range of stickers to customise. Priced at £17.99 for a Bynto and £19.99 for a full sized Goodbyn you can find a large range at Toyella (where there are also a few on sale…)
If saying goodbye to their Lego for the day is too much for your child then why not slip this chunky Lego lunch box into their bag? At £10.99 it is great value.
Finally something to hold all the snacks and extras safely until the lunch bell rings. l-r: Woodland storage pots £6 from Sisters Guild, Ecosnapwrap Campervan Sandwich Wrap £6.60 form Juicy Tots and Rice small food containers £6.99 from Kidsen.
