The difference is inside. The lunch box is divided into 2 sections. One section for lunch and one section which holds a drink bag – rather than a bottle you fill the bag with water or juice.
The drinks bag simply squishes down into one half of the lunch bag, and feed the tap end through the small zip pocket on the side of the bag.
What this means is that your child now has a water-tight drink in their bag, which they can access via the tap. You just squeeze the buttons to release the drink into a cup – which is included in the lunch box. Make sure your child knows how to work the dispenser – there is a knack to it, but Gemma and Jacob can both manage it easily.
There is plenty of space for drink, cup and lunch. It helps that the drink bag is a bit squashy, as you can manoeuvre it to make more room if needed. Gemma and Jacob have been using these bags daily since half term, and I am pleased to report there have been no leaks – and Jacob tells me all his friends love his ‘astronaut’ lunch bag and want one for themselves.
Isn’t is just a really simple solution to a really irritating problem? I really don’t know why it hasn’t been thought of before – it could have saved many a sandwich from the orange juice onslaught.
If you love the look of these (and really – who wouldn’t?) then you could win one in my new competition. I have teamed up with Bevgo Bag to give away 2 Bevgo lunch boxes – one girl design and one boy design. To enter, just fill in the rafflecopter form below:
