Dreading Back-to-School Lunch Packing?

August 31, 2022

It’s hard to believe that ‘for real’ (non-virtual) back-to-school time is finally here.  After years of masks, social distancing, and virtual classrooms, students are finally going to be able to get back to a normal – and hopefully healthy – school experience.

Among the many challenges of getting back into the routines that come with back-to-school time, is wracking your brain with what to pack your kids (or yourself!) for lunch, day-in, day out.

We all do our best to include healthy food in our children’s lunch boxes (and our own for that matter!); however, sometimes the difference between a child eating or not eating their lunch is all in the “marketing”, that is, the presentation and packaging.

Fun & kid-friendly containers can help transform lunch-bag letdown into lunch-bag fun! My kids are all grown up now, but our favourite lunch gear was from a company called Bentology. Bentology products are designed to help you pack nutritious bento box style lunches for school (or work … or play!). The unique design of this durable line of products makes it easy to break free of the sandwich mentality, and as a bonus, the products are free of phthalates, BPA, PVC, or lead.
