BYOB with Lock & Lock Lunch Bags

 

Some people geek out over cars or gadgets, but for me, it’s food containers!  I use Lock & Lock airtight containers to organize our pantry staples, and also for keeping our leftovers in the fridge.  I can never really have enough!  So when Lock & Lock asked if I’d like to try one of their lunch bags for Jacob’s school baon, I was more than happy to do it.

Lock&Lock Lunch Bags are perfect for this coming school year as they come in new, attractive designs.  The lunch bag they sent us is thermally insulated, so food stays warm longer, and the twist jars are so cute!  As with all other Lock & Lock food containers, the jars are BPA-free, easy to clean,  and safe for use inthe  freezer, microwave and dishwasher.

Did you know that June is National Pa-Baon Month?  Lock & Lock supports this advocacy by encouraging parents to pack nutritious and delicious school lunches for their kids, to prevent both malnutrition and obesity.

When left to their own devices, kids will usually choose to buy things like soda, chips, chocolate, and fast food items from the school cafeteria.  So if you are able, it’s always better to prepare homemade food for your kids so that they learn to enjoy healthy, balanced meals.

I know that preparing nutritious lunches for our kids takes a lot of planning and effort, but it’s totally worth it.  I’m no expert in the kitchen, but here are a few tips I can share

  • Cook a big batch of a few baon staples and freeze them to use throughout the week.  We often make big matches of roast chicken, meatballs, and homemade fish or chicken nuggets, and freeze them for school lunches.
  • I’ve also found that the better the quality of rice we use, the more my kids will eat.  Our favorites are Jasponica white or Jasponica brown rice.
  • You can also set aside a portion of your dinner for your kids’ baon the next day.  This way, you only have to cook once a day.
  • Make your kids’ baon look visually appealing so that they will enjoy eating it.  Some moms are into bento.  I’m glad Jacob isn’t into that, though, since it would just require more time on my part!
  • Of course, cute lunch boxes and lunch bags also help make kids more ganado about their baon, so I’d recommended investing in a nice one like Lock & Lock!
