A special thanks to Mighty Nest & eMeals for providing me with products that represent the best of healthy, non-toxic lunch options! Affiliate links appear in this post.
Great Picks for Non-Toxic Gear:
(All items, plus more to suit your needs, can be found at Mighty Nest, one of my favorite green retailers.)
Beatrix New York Insulated Lunch Box If the adorable characters featured on Beatrix New York products aren’t enough to win you over, perhaps the quality construction and non-toxic materials will. I am so impressed by the toughness of this lunchbox (very important with kids’ products, as you know!) and its insulating abilities. Plus, my son won’t put it down! He was NOT happy that I took a photo of his beloved Alexander the Robot without his approval. I can feel safe about Beatrix New York products: they are PVC-free, phthalate-free, and lead-free. Another bonus: this lunchbox can be washed in the dishwasher!
Foogo Leakproof Stainless Steel Water Bottle We’ve tried a lot of water bottles in our son’s three years and none of them have performed like the Foogo. The locking cap ensures that no leaks will occur, and the flexible straw makes it easy for kiddos to drink. In addition, I like that my son can remove the cap by himself and refill his own water bottle. The 10 oz Foogo fits perfectly inside of a standard lunchbox. Perfect.
ThinkBaby Bento Box This bento box is a great size for crustless sandwiches, homemade dips, or hearty snacks. The removable stainless steel insert makes for easy cleaning, and the BPA-free plastic comes in a variety of colors.
Lunchskins Reusable Sandwich & Snack Bags Available in multiple colors and patterns, the Lunchskins reusable bags are the perfect way to go non-toxic with lunch gear. These sturdy bags are not only food-safe, but they are dishwasher-safe! Talk about green AND convenient!
Easy, Healthy School Lunch Menus:
I simply love meal planning services. There is no better way to ensure healthy eating and a reduced grocery budget than by planning in advance. I can’t say it enough:
I use eMeals weekly for my family’s meal planning because the meals options are diverse and delicious, the eMeals app is convenient and oh-so-heavenly to use, and there are monthly freebies. This month, get a free snack calendar when you subscribe! Use code LUNCH to get 20% off your subscription!
