With the school year underway, we thought we’d share some inspiration for filling those lunchboxes. Tempt your little ones’ tastebuds and keep them going all day long. Our tips - make it colourful, get creative and involve your little ones. Here’s a lunchbox we jam-packed full of goodness.
We got together with our friends at The Source Bulk Foods, where we go to shop a little more mindfully. Teach your little ones how to shop the zero waste way. The kids love the fun and interactive process of shopping the bulk food way, and it teaches them another way of minimizing our footprint on the Earth. Take your own containers, bags and bottles to refill.
1. Grab a paper bag
2. Write the code, to identify the produce
3. Scoop away, from the tubs into your paper bag
4. Weigh + pay at the counter
