Joseph Joseph GoEat Lunch Box
What’s not to love about a cleverly designed lunchbox that packs down perfectly when not in use? Space saving is a great feature of the Joseph Joseph GoEat range and fantastic for making room in already packed school bags. There are three different compartments too, which makes it easy to separate food and keep homemade lunches fresh throughout the day.

U-Konserve Rectangular Lunch Box Divider – Lime
We think that food tastes delicious out of a stainless steel container and think that you’d agree! So why not try this rectangular option from U-Konserve which also includes a nifty removable divider which makes it easy to separate food inside. Keep cut fruit away from your sandwich or dedicate one section to a salad and the other to snacks. The possibilities are endless! These rectangular containers are also available with an ocean or sky coloured lid and also fit snugly into a U-Konserve Insulated Lunch Sack.
Green Essentials Tuck-a-Stacker Trio Lunchbox
Pack, stack and eat! This stainless steel lunch box is a great zero waste lunch solution with three different compartments to make school meals nice and easy. The Tuck-a-Stacker includes 2 stackable levels, which can also be used completely separately, plus a bonus oblong “Tiny Tin” container.
Black+Blum’s Box Appetit – Bento Box
The perfect size for younger kids who have smaller school lunches. This little Bento Box is nice and compact but actually holds more than you think! We love that it comes with a handy little divider that lets you separate food, but also includes a fork and sauce pot that’s super useful for salad dressings, soy sauce or ketchup.
Zero Waste Cutlery
Joseph Joseph Go Eat Cutlery Set
No need to use flimsy, plastic and disposable cutlery at school anymore! This super handy cutlery set includes a stainless steel knife, fork and spoon – and it all packs up neatly into a convenient silicon holder which makes the set really easy to carry around. It’s practical, compact and portable, the perfect way to get the kids saying no to plastic cutlery at the school canteen.

Bamboo Cutlery 3-Piece Set & Bamboo Straw
A lightweight cutlery set that has it all! A bamboo spoon, fork, knife and straw – all in one practical and easily transportable calico pouch! Bamboo is a great eco-friendly material that is a safe alternative to plastic utensils that can sometimes expose your little ones to nasty chemicals if they aren’t BPA free. So pop this cutlery set inside your kids lunch bags and know that they’re treating their bodies well whilst also being kind to the environment.
BPA Free Water Bottles
Corkcicle Canteen Water Bottle 16oz
This stainless steel bottle is fantastic for Australian summer days as it keeps water cold for up to 25 hours! This is excellent if your kids are doing a bit of sport throughout their school days and need to make sure they stay hydrated in the heat. This sized Corkcicle bottle comes in a variety of fun colours, holds 473ml and sits nicely in the hand while roaming around the playground.
Memobottle A6 – The Slim Water Bottle – 375mL
Designed to fit perfectly flat alongside books and laptops, the A6 Memobottle is one of the most school lunch friendly bottles out there! We think this size is great because it’s nice and compact – it doesn’t take up much room inside a school bag and is easy to carry around in your hand. The Memobottle is also available in an A5 size that holds 750ml.

Joseph Joseph Dot Water Bottle
Get the kids learning how important it is to keep hydrated with the Joseph Joseph Dot Water Bottle. This super lightweight drink bottle is designed to keep track of how much water they have throughout the day. Each time the bottle gets refilled and the lid is screwed back on, the dot tracking system will let you know how many bottles of water you’ve had so far. 1 dot means 1 bottle, 2 dots means 2 bottles and so on! It’s a really fun and practical way of getting your kids to drink more water during school days.
