I’m about to confess something big here, Babyologists. When the new school year rolls in, the thing that excites me the most isn’t new and freshly ironed uniforms, nor the pile of brand new school books. Nup, none of that. It’s the lunch box – I’m all about finding the perfect lunch accessories. Please someone, speak up, tell me I’m not the only one.
The Trunk and Cargo Lunch Boxes from Boon are perfect for kids who like a buffet approach to lunch. The bento style lends itself to holding and separating some of your child’s favourite snacks. The best bit is all these compartments are under the one airtight lid – so there’s no losing little lids or containers out in the playground! Your little one will be able to pick his or her lunch box easily in the crowd with two styles available, a blue elephant design suitably named Trunk or the super cute chartreuse coloured Cargo snail. Both have a handle for easy carrying.
Of course, one should never underestimate the power of an eye-catching lunch box. My own love of kooky lunchware stems from the fact that my youngest so detested having to start school that his only highlight in those early days were recess and lunch. I had to make those times as appealing as possible in the hope that the excitement would rub off on the rest of the school day and let it be said, fun lunch boxes helped immensely! Of course, these lovelies aren’t just perfect for school. They’re super for kinder too and for days out, impromptu picnics in the park, visits to grandma’s house and even for staving off snack boredom on road trips.
Boon Trunk and Cargo lunch boxes are priced $19.95 each and available from Urban Baby.
