I never thought that purchasing a school lunchbox was such a big deal but gosh, aren’t there a lot of options these days?! I mean seriously, I’m pretty sure there was one small section in the supermarket which stocked lunch boxes when I grew up. The most complicated decision was what colour to get. I write this as I recently had a friend comment that I was too flippant about my daughter’s lunchbox options for kindy. Really? I provide her with the options of a healthy sandwich, fruit, veggies and a drink. I was asked if I would be sending my daughter with a waste free lunchbox? Is it BPA free? You know, stainless steel is much better for children. Does it have a metal handle because sometimes they’ve been known to pinch kids as they close them. Does it have a bento compartment option? You’d probably want a leak proof one as well. It got me thinking that maybe I have been too flippant with her lunchbox. I started googling in a frenzy until I realised, who cares? I mean, don’t get me wrong I’m sure there are plenty of fabulous options out there for lunch boxes but I guess my daughter and I are lucky if our biggest concern at the moment is whether I’ve bought the best lunchbox for her. What do you think?
