We know, we know… it is barely July and you have only worked halfway through your summer plans. But, we here at Innobaby want to make sure you get the best stuff for your kiddo before the mad dash that is—dun, dun, dun—Back To School Shopping. You’ve got a lot on your list, and checking some of the big things off early will make you feel like that Super Accomplished Mom we are all always striving to be. So, if you’re ready to make some purchases, keep reading to learn more about the best lunch essentials for school or daycare, including the best lunchbox, best utensils, and a genius product that helps make eating fun.
Lunch Essentials for School or Daycare
This upcoming school year, we are going to help make it the easiest one yet when it comes to preparing, packing, and cleaning your kiddo’s lunchbox. That’s because our lunchbox is made of Platinum Silicone, which is the best, non-toxic material available (that’s right, it is even better than food-grade!).
When choosing products for your family, it can be difficult to avoid plastic. While many plastics are great to use and can be toxin-free, such as the best BPA-free virgin materials we use in our plastics, many companies do not put in the same amount of care. Many plastics contain a lot of toxic chemicals, including BPA, heavy metals, PVC, and phthalates. All of these toxic chemicals can enter your child’s bloodstream because plastic can absorb into food, drinks, teethers, and whatever else goes in their mouths.
In addition, plastic lunchboxes require a rubber gasket to ensure that it is leak-proof. You know… that nasty thing that is nearly impossible to clean and is full of gunk and mildew? Ugh! This is why we use Platinum Silicone in our lunchboxes. Simply put: Platinum silicone is the highest possible grade you can get when it comes to food products. Platinum grade silicone is the only grade that ensures absolutely no toxins are being absorbed into your child’s food, making it ideal as a material to be used for making a lunchbox.
The Best Lunchbox for School and On The Go
The FlexBox Lunchbox is perfectly leak-proof without a rubber seal! Inside, the FlexPlate is made with platinum material and the FlexBox exterior is made with ABS, designed to be long-lasting. Together, they are specially designed to work as a leak-proof seal without the need for a rubber gasket, which infamously harbors dangerous mold and bacteria.
FlexBoard, FlexCharmz, and the FlexPlate silicone tray are all included with FlexBox. EVERYTHING is super easy to clean, and detachable when you wash it as well as easy to assemble back again.
- Made of Platinum Silicone. Pure and eco-friendly, it is also toxic-free and extremely durable to use throughout the whole school year—and beyond.
- Able to withstand extreme temperatures. Making and packing lunch has never been easier. Use the silicone plate in the microwave, oven, or freezer and place it directly back in the box to take on the go!
- Dishwasher safe. Wash in the dishwasher for a quick and easy clean, without the need to scrub or soak for long periods of time.
Utensils Your Kiddo Needs
These utensils are perfect for your kiddo: They’re made with a thoughtful groove & easy-grip design, perfect for those little hands. The fork grips pasta like no other, ensuring as minimal of a path of destruction left behind as possible on pasta days. They also come in 3 adorable colors to match perfectly with their FlexBox. Your kiddo will love having a lunch set as unique as they are!
If you have a picky eater, these utensils will be a game-changer for you. Made with a hole at the top for FlexCharms, studies show that picky eaters are more apt to try new food if they have an interesting, fun, or new tool to use. And, let us assure you, there are no utensils more fun or interesting than our FlexWare!
