Back-to-School Trends We Love

Whether your kids will be in the classroom or at home, you need to keep things nutritious and fun for the kids this year.

  1. Better Lunchboxes: We love the high-quality products from Thermos and kids will love back-to-school metal lunch boxes featuring some of their favorite characters in bright glossy graphics such as Superman, Skylander and Star Wars. The boxes are also 100% PVC free and includes a hinged lid, plastic handle and a metal latch. Head to Thermos lunchboxes to shop for eco-friendly lunch options.
  2. Silly Notes for Kids: This year might be stressful for your kids. Having a little note tucked into a lunchbox can remind your kiddo of your love. These You're Amazing notecards we found on Amazon are some of our favorites. 
  3. Sip Less Sugar. There are so many terrific drinks out there that will keep kids hydrated without adding a ton of calories or sugar. Of course water in a reusable bottle is the best option, after that, we love hint water and AHA bubbly drinks.

Now for inspiration on what to put inside the lunch, check out these bento lunch ideas.
