Have you tried reusable sandwich bags and snack bags yet? We've been using some cute fabric ones from OrganiLuxe that my girls are in love with! In fact, if the bags aren't in their lunches I get flak from them. They both help make their lunches in the morning partly to ensure the bags are put in. (Daphne just started preschool a few mornings a week and one of the highlights is that she gets to pack and take a big-girl lunch box like her sister.)
OrganiLuxe, one of my blog sponsors, is a mother-daughter company started by Leah and Janis Loudermilk. They began making organic cotton products 4 years ago, inspired by their daughter/grandaughter, now 7, and her severe food allergies. In their research, they found that the chemicals and toxins in our environment correlate to the rise in some childhood illnesses, such as allergies. They decided to clean up their environment at home, and to help others do the same (in a colorful and stylish way!).
OrganiLuxe sells reusable sandwich bags, snack bags, and lunch bags—all of which are lined with organic cotton rather than plastic. They also sell organic pillow cases and blankets in cute prints and toddler pillows.
If you order now, their sandwich bags, snack bags, and lunch bags are all 25% off through the end of the month. Perfect for stocking up for a year of school lunches or family snacks! May I suggest the mix and match set of four or the set of six so your kids won't be disappointed when one is in the wash?
