It's back to school time - here are Lunchbox tips

Back-to-School craziness is almost over!! However, the last little bit is to come…lunches!! Day in day out for the next 4 Terms which is why our go-to-guide for everything to do with lunches might come in handy.

2. Water Bottle Time

Depending on the age of your child and their needs this might vary from a simple plastic bottle with a sip to lid to a hydro-flask to keep food and drink warm. Here is a selection of bottles to consider

Kmart and Target or
Woolworths have a cute range of items that kids will love and are to clean.

3. Packaging Options

Depending on the food depends on how it’s stored. There are a variety of options especially eco-friendly options. Woolworths, Coles or Target.

4. Pack a creative lunch

Pack your kids' favourite healthy foods, plus a special treat for them to look forward to later. For younger kids, leave a picture in their lunch box or draw a smiley face on their banana or mandarin to remind them you're thinking of them. They'll love the gesture and be excited to show their new friends too!

Fresh fruit and vegetables are recommended by Health Organisations and the NSW Department of Education. Here are the best places at Westfield Mt Druitt for fresh food and vegetables.
