Back To School- Lunch September 01 2016

Summer is fading and it’s back to school for your little ones!

We have some wonderful tools to help make preparation a little easier. New Planet Box stainless steel lunch boxes with optional food compartments (2,4 &5.) These highly durable and easy to clean boxes are decorated with fun magnets that your babes can switch to customize. We also offer stainless steel forks and spoons, water bottles and icepacks from Planet Box.

Some of our favorite accessories include Stow and go collapsible food containers, stackable snack containers by Re Play ( recycled from milk cartons!) ,  little green pouches- perfect for yogurt, apple sauces & fruit purees (these babies are eco-friendly, durable, reusable, BPA free and dishwasher safe!)

A great alternative option to our Planet Boxes are the Bento box inserts and cases. Colorful compartments to mix and match for our insulated Bentology lunch box or any other case that catches your childrens’ eye!

We love back to school, full bellies and safe kiddos.
