    Default Litter Free Lunchboxes

    At dd's school they encourage litter free lunchboxes to reduce the amount of litter in the school grounds.

    (yes they teach kids to pick it up, but we all know what it's like)

    What type of containers do you use, and what do you pack?

    For tomorrow, dd has:
    Klippo container with lettuce, cucumber, grated carrot, red onion, yellow capsicum, celery and avocado.
    Smash snack box of watermelon and grapes.
    Smash container from the Nude Food pack with yoghurt in it.
    Klippo small container with banana bread.

    Her lunch box is one of the bigger Smash ones.

    For daycare, we send morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea and we just use a separate klippo container for each one and no plastic wraps, bags etc.

    I would like some better containers as I find the klippo is not leak proof. Although I guess if the containers were too tightly sealed then young kids couldn't get the tops off themselves.

    DS (7yrs) has a large zip up, soft Smash lunch boxes. It came with a sandwich container, small snack box and a freezer cube. (Also had a pencil case and a small drink container, but he doesnt use those ones). I also bought a Nude Food Triple snack box.

    He gets a sandwich in the sandwich box, cut up carrots in the small snack box and I use 2 of the triple snack compartments...one has jelly, the other has 2 or 3 cookies. A banana goes in the lunch box and so does a juice box and thats that
    He has a large, insulated water bottle but that doesnt get packed into the lunch box.

    DS1 is 5, he has a 'Go Green' lunchbox which is huge but I love it because it seals each section, I even tested with yoghurt! And one section is big enough for a small frozen drink bottle (milk/water) or ice brick. It comes in an insulated bag.

    DS2 is only 3, he goes to 3yo kindy twice a week and stays for lunch (they have shared morning tea). He has a 'Nude Food Mini Rubbish Free' lunchbox with a 'Cool Skin' bag.

    Being environmentally friendly is very important to me, I don't use any wrapping or packaging (I make all his snacks too so not pre-packaged stuff). I do love little bento clips and wrap holders tho So cute!

    I bought the Nude Food Mover one, but it doesn't hold enough for my 8 year old. The 2 containers with screw on lids are great though. I put custard or yoghurt in one and sometimes blueberries or something in the other. The custard/yoghurt has never spilled.

    Well I feel kinda bad now... most fruit goes in plastic containers.
    Thing is that I bake alot and freeze down in individual portions with gladwrap so its quick and easy to grab out of freezer in mornings.
    Whats your suggestion on dealing with that?

    Not sure about the baking, we bake twice a week, I haven't frozen things like that for ages. Not sure what you mean about the fruit though.

    The kids have their lunch boxes inspected each day due to a strict nut ban, and the kids with a litter free lunch are asked what house they're in and earn points for their house.

    Don't have kids but I try and do mostly waste free lunches and snacks for myself at work. I use a variety of little containers and I also have a few sets of snack taxi's. You can buy them online at www.snacktaxi.com - they are awesome, very durable and cute too! Plus velcro closure so would be very easy for little fingers.

    I pack things like sandwiches, crackers, soy crisps, biscuits, popcorn, rice crackers, chips, dried fruit - everything non messy basically!

    Yogurt, fruit etc goes in little containers.
