Getting your kids to eat healthy is no easy job for some moms, but thanks to LunchBots ‘ genius and stylish stainless-steel food containers, packing healthy lunches and snacks for daycare, school, the gym or play dates is so much more fun and practical! 100% non-toxic, easy to clean and even easier to pack, these bento boxes will make even the fussiest eaters enjoy their foods!
After becoming a mother, founder Jacqueline Linder started to search for plastic-free food containers on the market, and found that the supply was really low. She knew that stainless steel was the healthiest alternative to packing food and snacks on the go without harming the environment, so in 2008 she started LunchBots in her garage, since then always adhering to their ultimate mission: to make it easy for you and your family to eat healthy on the go.
Since then, Jacqueline expanded her business into a wide range of stylish, 100% non-toxic food containers, that are ideal for school lunches, road trips, or snack times between tennis and piano classes. Their range include the Bento containers that come in three sizes, the leak proof containers – that are intended for wet foods, dressings or snacks, and the insulated containers – triple insulated to keep food hot for 6 hours and cold for 12 hours.
So, what should you pack for your kids school lunch? Or afternoon snack at the playground? Or energy fuel for sports day? You’re probably looking to add some flavour and colour to your kids’ meals, so that they’re more attracted to finish it up!
Here is some inspiration of fun and tasty back-to-school lunches that are guaranteed to be gobbled up quickly!
