Whether you are sending your little ones to the classroom or homeschooling them this year, staying organized will help make things run smoothly for your family.
One way to stay organized is to prep your kids' lunches and snacks ahead of time. Either the night before or the morning of, it is important to develop a consistent routine. I found that moving towards a litterless lunch as helped us immensely. We don't have to worry about running out of plastic baggies or throw-away containers, plus we feel great about helping the environment.
In this blog post, I share my (and my children's!) favourite products that help my family with this hectic, but exciting time!
Have you ever rushed to pack your kids' lunches and realized that you are out of ziplocks? No need to stress about this anymore with 3 Sprouts Sandwich and Snack bags. These reusable bags not only look adorable, they are washable and reusable, promoting a waste-free lunch and are BPA, PVC, and Phthalate free. They are leak-proof and they will stand on their own -- making it easier for your child to enjoy a snack without dumping out the whole bag (ideally).
The 3 Sprouts Bento Box is a three-compartment lunch container with a leak-proof design that will help keep the meal separated, making it possible to store wet and dry foods together. Eliminating multiple containers, this bento box is perfectly sized for a child’s appetite and the easy-open latches foster an important sense of independence.
My daughter also loves using the bags and bento boxes for storing some of her favourite toys too!
With cold weather around the corner, the 3 Sprouts Stainless Steel Food Jar is a great way of keeping soups and stews warm for your kids' lunches. Made of food-grade stainless steel, this container will keep your kids’ lunch warm for up to 6 hours, and cold for up to 8 hours. Designed with a brightly coloured animal and BPA-free, this lunchbox addition is loved by parents and children alike. With a wide-mouth opening and spork included mealtime prep and clean up are a breeze.
Moving towards a litterless lunch can be a bit daunting. Luckily, the 3 Sprouts Water Bottle is a great way to help your family move in a healthier direction and skip the juice boxes in their lunch pail. Designed with kids in mind, the brightly coloured animals cover the bottle and the easy flip spout design makes it easily accessible by small children. This odor, scratch and shatter-resistant bottle is a great way to encourage your child to drink more water, and also keep the rest of their lunch cool during the day.
How does your little one carry all of this around? With a lunch bag, of course! This one is sized right to fit a full day’s nutritious lunch and snacks, with a lovable animal face children adore while keeping food temperature-regulated and contained. With an adjustable strap, the lunch bag can be carried cross-body, keeping hands free. Fully wipeable inside and out, each bag has a write-on name tag on the inside to make sure it finds its way home.
