Don't forget to check out our quick and easy lunch tips and recipes while you're here!
Breakfast Served Funny Side Up
The kids are sure to chow down on breakfast in the mornings with Fred's FunnySide Up dog and cat Egg Molds.
Meal Prepping Made Easy
Packing lunches is a breeze when you have the right storage solutions. Stasher bags come in all shapes, sizes and colours. If you're a fan of meal prepping, organize the colours by day of the week (orange for Monday, blue for Tuesday, green for Wednesday etc...), this way the kids can grab the day's colour from the fridge and toss it in their lunch bags on the way out the door. If you pack different items for each child (Egg salad sandwich for Bella, and chicken salad for Spencer) you could assign each kid a colour of Stasher bag, that way they know which items are theirs to take!
Save It For Later
Save it for later, with Now Designs Save-It bowl covers. Eliminate the need for plastic wrap by introducing reusable covers for leftovers, batter and more. The lining prevents moisture from escaping and keeps food happy. Remove, machine wash, and repeat.
Cold Packs = Cold Snacks
Keep lunches, or after school snacks cold all day with this funky Avocado hot/cold pack. It can also be heated in the microwave!
Healthy Lunches Are A Breeze
Salads in a jar - the easiest healthy lunch ever! With Kilner's snack on the go jar you can store just about anything, but our personal favourite it to layer our favourite salad recipes. There's even a holder attached to lid for dressing. Other uses include, celery and dip, or pita and hummus.
The Underrated Lunch Bag Essential
Sporks! We think sporks are the most underrated tool. The spoon, fork, knife combo is the easiest thing to throw in a lunch bag because there is nothing worse than bringing a fork when you needed a spoon.
