    I recommend the metal ones with the pop out spout and straw. They often come with cartoon characters on them. Zak brand. Here's an example https://www.house.com.au/product/zak...FQoQvQods54Jug

    I think on drink bottle thread while ago the Nike drink bottles were highly recommended we use a camel back for everyday use. But I hate straws

    We will get the metal lunch boxes

    I've got a Nike one myself that I keep in the car for water, and if it's the same one then yes, they're very good. They have a valve that doesn't leak, you just tilt it up and squeeze.

    I've got a kids size Camelbak for DD but I'm not 100% sure I like it, but I paid $25 for it so I'll give it a go until it falls apart (if indeed it does).

    What is the appeal of the metal lunch boxes?

    We use Nike drink bottles for my 4 daughters, seems to be the only drink bottle we have found that doesn't leak..

    The planet/metal lunch boxes don't work for us. We've used one similar but it doesn't have enough room to hold my girls food.

    I have a yumbox that is similar.

    For me, it is sturdy, saves on packaging and various other conrainers and it's easier to get my picky eater to eat.

    It can be easier to portion out servings of certain foods etc.

    Yumbox is somewhat small. Planetbox and Go Green are much bigger.

    I bought the planet box with the matching drink bottle. It looks like a great bottle and I like the fact it isn't plastic

    We have the planetbox, it's extremely hard wearing ( lasted easily this year in kindergarten without a scratch- I know some people still using it after 4 years) it keeps cooler longer than plastic boxes, ( it also comes with an insulated bag plus I put in an ice brick in as well so it's still cold at home time!) , it's big and has plenty of room for fruit break, recess and lunch and a drink bottle,its rubbish free so no packets or zip lock bags to throw away , it's easy for the kids to open, dishwasher safe ( just take off the magnets first) plus DS loves that you can change the magnets around plus I like that the food looks appealing

    I don't like these ones as I find the straw sometimes slips down and then the water doesn't come out properly.

    I prefer ones that don't have a straw as they can be half filled with water and frozen over night in freezer for really hot days then fill to top with water the next day.
