Top 5 Kids Lunchboxes
With the kids preparing to go back to school in September, you’re going to want to start thinking about what they need before they go back. With this in mind, we’ve picked out our top 5 kids’ lunchboxes that are perfect for a packed lunch!
1. Sistema Lunchboxes
Sistema have a great range of lunchboxes in a variety of colours and styles. We particularly like the Bento Box (£9.99) which features a sliding centre compartment and yoghurt pot, meaning that different items can be kept separate. We also like the Triple Split (£8.99) with multiple compartments to help keep different foods fresh.
2. TUMTUM Nesting Snackpots - £9.00
These handy snackpots fit nicely inside each other and are great for using inside larger lunchboxes to separate food. They’re ideal for small sandwiches or pasta salads and the cute kitten design is perfect for little ones.
3. Skip Hop Zoo Lunchie - £14.00
Make lunchtime fun with the friendly faces of these Zoo Lunchies! The perfect size for younger ones, the lunchies are soft, roomy and have an insulated interior to hold all the snacks, food and drink that your kids need to take to school.
4. 3 Sprouts Lunch Bag - £14.95
This insulated lunch bag is designed with a cute elephant motif on the front and has a handy buckle-clip handle for attaching the lunch bag to a backpack. The lunch bag is big enough to fit other containers inside meaning foods can be kept separate.
5. Smiggle Camo Double Decker Lunchbox - £16.50
Your kids can go back to school in style with these camo-print lunchboxes from Smiggle! The handy two tiers mean that there’s plenty of space to hold your children’s lunches and the handle is useful for carrying the lunchbox around at lunchtime.
Finally, to keep lunchboxes clean, we recommend Milton Sterilising Fluid which can be used to sterilise lunchboxes in just 15 minutes so you can be rest assured that your child’s lunchbox is germ free.
