Healthy Food Storage & Transport

So you’ve made your healthy food, you have left overs and you want to store it or transport it to work or school. What are your healthy lunch box options?

1 – Stainless Steel

Food grade stainless steel is a safe way to store left over food. There are a few different stainless steel lunch boxes on the market, very few of which have a leak-proof seal. If you have just made a sandwich and you have a piece of fruit or some dry snacks, something like the Lunchbots is adequate.

If you need leak-proof, chances are you’re storing something runny that requires insulation. In this instance, both Lunchbots &* Thermos brand have a variety of insulated food jars to suit your needs – many with matching flasks & water bottles available. Snaps by Green Essentials are a range of stainless steel lunch boxes with BPA Free plastic lids featuring a silicone seal for those needing leakproof.

2 – BPA Free Plastic

Keep your eye out for bpa free plastic food containers & lunch boxes, they’re available more readily than you may think. Most have the #5 symbol, which is polypropylene of check the labelling. We carry the range of Lock and Lock containers that come in varying sizes, many of which are suitable for use as lunch boxes.

3- Glass

Both Glasslock and Lock & Lock have a range of glass food containers with leakproof lids that are suitable for adults. Children need to be aware that they are breakable, so they may not be suitable for school bags.

4 – Insulated Lunch Bags

Making sure food doesn’t spoil is important. Finding one that lasts the school year can be a chore as well. The most robust insulated lunch bags we have in store are from Built NY, made from neoprene and are washing machine friendly.

All the products mentioned above are available to purchase from our online store Shop Naturally. We hope this comparison guide will help you choose the product that’s right for you.
