The LunchBot – an eco friendly dining solution

My love for the humble LunchBot knows no bounds. I can’t get enough of it and it doesn’t even belong to me – it belongs to my son. Every time I see it I feel happy inside, sad I know. I was fed up of having an array of plastic containers in our cupboard. The number with matching lids was diminishing and I thought there must be a solution.

The LunchBot is a stainless steel lunch box with dividers. You can get different colours, sizes, compartment combinations and although the basic LunchBot is not 100% water tight (a leak proof range does exist), foods like houmous and fruit are safe. They are eco-friendly, BPA free, extremely durable, stain and rust resistant PLUS it’s a family owned business. Amazing!

I have visions of Winston using his when he’s 80 years of age on a picnic (maybe just a tad ambitious). I bought ours from Amazon and decided to go for the plain version as the coloured paint can chip. I love seeing him decide what order to eat things in…needless to say he doesn’t understand the concept: ‘save the best until last’.

Ideas of healthy snacks to pack for you or your little one:

– chopped fruit – kiwi, half a banana, apple, pear, grapes, cucumber, tomatoes, berries

– dried fruit – raisins, apricots

–  houmous, salsa, guacamole

– rice salad, couscous, cooked pasta

– savoury muffin

– breadsticks, rice cakes, mini sandwiches, oatcakes, wholemeal pitta bread

– boiled eggs

– cooked meats including ham and chicken

There are other companies that offer eco-friendly snack solutions and stainless steel lunchboxes. Have a look around. Yes, they are more expensive but hopefully you’ll only ever have to buy one! – EVER.

I may (or may not) have recently emailed them to ask them to provide more UK stockists.
