What is the best lunchbox for kids starting school? Lisa asked her Instagram followers and the verdict is in.

The time has come when I become a real ‘school mum’. I’ve been told this involves being on committees, attending many social events and most of all making lunches everyday. I miss the chef at the boy’s childcare centre already and Ted and Jack haven’t even started school yet. 

Being heavily pregnant, in the middle of renovating and working, the idea of batch cooking muffins, coming up with new sandwich options and making sure that my nutrient rich, nut free, sugar free, plastic free, gluten free children’s lunchboxes get the teachers approval, doesn’t excite me all that much, however I’m going to give it a red hot go, and I’m going to feel like a domestic goddess, enthusiastic super mum….even if it’s just for a week.

So I did a little insta post this week and asked YOU, the experienced mums out there what your favourite lunchbox was. I also got as many messages asking for the answers, so here it goes for all the parents out there in the same boat as me. These were the top lunchbox brands that were recommended to me.

In first place is….

Yum Box https://www.yumboxlunch.com/shop/
