Stale sarnies and warm yoghurt for lunch, anyone? No, we didn’t think so. We all like our food fresh and tasty. So, whether you're lovingly cooking up a takeaway banquet for a baby in the early stages of weaning, or you're hurriedly pulling together enough calories for a hungry preschooler, we can recommend some great kit to store it just right for when lunchtime rolls round. 👌
EASY-SERVE TRAVEL BOWL BY SKIP HOP
A little snack pack that's perfect for weaning and beyond, this clever Skip Hop Easy-Serve Travel Bowl & Spoon comes with a spoon which stores away into the lid, for easy feeding on-the-go. With an airtight, non-leak lid, it's perfect for storing soft or pureed foods, but it'll be ideal for keeping snacks like chopped fruits and veggies when they get bigger too.
SMALL FOOD BOXES BY RICE
Rice's cheerful and dishwasher-friendly Small Food Boxes are a great choice for lunchboxes or on-the-go snacking. Designed for weaning, but perfect for once they become champion eaters too, Oxo Tot's Baby Blocks Freezer Storage Containers are ideal for storing purees for lunch when they are nippers or yoghurts when they are bigger.
INSULATED BOTTLE BY PURA
An alternative to a plastic water bottle, Pura uses stainless steel for the most durable bottles going. Great for babies or big kids alike, their insulated designs keep water cool or milk warm, whatever you're up to. Keeping the same bottle year on year, you use a toddler sippy spout for weaning and then, once your toddler reaches reach school age, you simply swap the topper for a straw or open top.
Stainless Steel Fork & Spoon Set by VIIDA
A natty little fork and spoon set that's easy-to-handle and perfect for popping in a lunch box or change bag, made from super-hygienic antibacterial stainless steel. To keep them from making a mess of your bag before you can wash them, why not store them in the matching Multipurpose Travel Pouch with its unique pinch-press sea. In a range of funky colours, it's a super-handy accessory for when you're on the go. (We've used it as a make-up bag when we've been pushed for space. #trueconfessions)
SNACK BOXES BY DONE BY DEER
Whether you're packing for a single snack time, or preparing a lunchtime feast, this set of three boxes by Done by Deer lets you stash just the right amount. Perfect for keeping the sweet away from the savoury, or the yoghurt away from the sarnies, we love the space for labeling on the lid and the fact they all stow away into themselves.
SANDWICH BAG BY HAPS NORDIC
A sustainable choice for wrapping their sarnies, or other snacks too, Haps Nordic's Sandwich and Snack Bags are a storage choice you can use again and again and again. In fact you'll probably find yourself wanting to use them for your own lunch too.
INSULATED FOOD JAR BY B.BOX
For very particular eaters, this b.box stainless steel food pot is just right for eating on-the-go. From hearty mac’n’cheese to a fruit-loaded yoghurt, the insulated design keeps hot food warm and cold food cold, so they're perfect for storing whatever's on the menu in Michelin-starred condition.
