If you follow mommy groups on facebook, you will come across conversations about Planet Box or Bento Boxes. These boxes are great space savers and come in different sizes. You will find that you may become inspired to send your kids a more "artistic" lunch. It will also help make lunch a little more fun and maybe you will have less food come home too;)
Beeswax wraps are gaining popularity as an alternative to plastic wrap and bags. Beeswax wraps are reusable and easy to clean making them a new family friendly item.
You will find more and more restaurants are no longer offering plastic straws for their drinks. Some have switched to paper straws and I've even heard of some that are no longer offering straws at all. Send your littles to school with their own reusable straw so milk days go a little less messy.
Reusable Water Bottles
When it comes to reusable water bottles, there are so many to choose from. You may want to try a few to see which your kids will prefer to have and also keep in mind to make sure they are spill proof so they don't have soggy lunches. These bottles are available in glass, stainless steel and BPA free plastic.
Some other great options to look into include:
Cloth Snack Pouches
Stainless Steel Cutlery
Reusable Chop Sticks
Silicone Sandwich Bags
