There is something to be said about the warm summer days.
No rushing, just savouring. The here and now.
If you find you want to enjoy the last few days of our Maritime summer without fretting another minute over school lunch prep, here’s two things for you:1.) We have your perfect lunch packing gear at Nurtured!
Everything we choose is carefully selected so you kids can easily open, eat, and also learn to close (and maybe soon one day pack as well!) . Water bottles, thermos, bento, lunch containers small and large, we have it all.
Small hands starting primary school will appreciate:
Lunchbots Uno, Duo or Trio: Stainless steel container that stays fresh and divides up the smorgasbord of goodness you have planned.
Goodbyn Bynto: 3 compartments to fit a veggie and perhaps a dip, a 1/2 sandwich and their favourite fruit.
Go Green Lunch Box: A 5-compartment container with one compartment dedicated to their 8 oz stainless steel water bottle. (Older kids will love this option too though they will outgrow the water bottle which simply makes room for an additional snack.)
Bigger kids (or just plain, bigger appetites) are going to need:
Lunchbots Insulated Food Container– From salad to a hot chili, this insulated jar is wide like a cereal bowl, features a stainless steel interior lid, locks securely and never leaks. It’s a win all around.
LunchBots Bento – Duo, Trio or Cinco: The bigger size containers are just as durable and feature a familiar bento style with room for quite few more ounces.
A clever bag that is insulated and has enough room for food storage is a must. New this year is the Lunchbots Duplex Lunch bag. The highest quality in details, durable zipper closes and it’s thoughtful design matches every option you can think of packing. We created a special deal just for you: Save $20 on the purchase of your Lunchbots Duplex bag when you purchase $75 of Lunchbots containers at Nurtured (Just mention this post). Wow.
