Last year when the twins were at kindy I always gave them two sandwiches for lunch and a piece of fruit for snack time, a habit I continued when they started reception this year. However it wasn’t long before I noticed they were very hungry after school so I have been increasing their lunch and snacks, clearly learning and playing at the big school makes you ravenous! If you’re looking for a fun and practical way to pack all these snacks and yummy lunch in one handy lunch box it’s time to upgrade to Flip Lid:
While preparing lunches for her kids Australian mum-of-two Samantha realised that the times of a simple square lunchbox are long gone, she decided to give the old-school lunchbox a modern make-over with a funky and exciting new look. The cleverly designed Flip Lid lunchbox will put the fun back in lunch time with a refreshing flip, turn, open, close design.
The Flip Lid lunchbox ($24.95) is a generously sized lunchbox that consists of two halves that connect on the side. Kids can open it and close it, flip it and turn it to discover what’s for lunch that day. From each of the four sides they can access different compartments making lunch full of surprises. There are 6 sections in total: two big compartments perfect for sandwiches, wraps or salad and four smaller compartments to store a muesli bar, some fruit, crackers, vegetables or other snacks.
Compared to most other lunch boxes on the market the Flip Lid offers loads of storage space and as each compartment closes individually foods won’t spill into each other. As a bonus the Flip Lid comes with a little snack container and a small drink bottle/freezer block that fit perfectly in the side compartments, I personally think the drink bottle is too small for my children so we use it as a freezer block instead.
Flip Lid lunch boxes are free from BPA and phthalate free and while hand wash is preferred they are dishwasher safe (top rack only). The larger size and the funky look make Flip Lid an ideal choice for older children. There are currently 6 great colours available to suit both boys and girls of all ages.
