Yes, you read that right. Back-To-School. Even though it feels like we literally blinked and Summer is over, it’s time to start gearing up for the new school year!
With the start of any new school year, comes the much anticipated back to school shopping, finding the perfect shoes, sharpening pencils, and of course, packing lunch. Having the right arsenal of equipment can make lunchtime preparation a breeze!
Here is our list of Lunchbox Essentials:
The Lunch Box // YumBox Lunch
Bento-style dining is all the rage in the school cafeteria! These Bento lunch boxes are small enough to fit into any standard size lunch bag, but large enough to hold all the makings of a yummy and satisfying lunch!
The Water Bottle // Contigo
By far the most durable and reliable water bottle we’ve come across. These flip-spout water bottles from Contigo hold up to everyday use, keep beverages cold and are even easy to clean!
The Snack Bag // Itzy Ritzy
The school year comes around and plastic baggies start going out the window like hotcakes. Save your money and the environment with reusable snack bags, like these zippered and lined pouches from Itzy Ritzy!
The Ice Pack // Kids Konserve
No need to worry about keeping refrigerated items cold! These ice packs from Kids Konserve have a no sweat outer pouch that prevents other items from getting soggy and keep lunch boxes nice and cool!
The Utensils // Pottery Barn Kids
Another area of waste, along with plastic baggies, can be disposable utensils. Invest in a nice set of reusable silverware and save yourself some green, while helping keep our planet green. Now that’s a win-win!
The Insulated Cup // Skip*Hop
Enough about keeping food cold, what about keeping things hot? These adorable insulated cups from Skip*Hop are just what you need for those hot lunch items on the menu!
