stainless steel thermos

Ask your child what his or her favorite part of the school day is and chances are the response will be, "lunch and recess."  Not much has changed.  Do you remember as a child the sound of the lunch bell ringing; the excitement of grabbing your tin superhero lunch box and squeezing yourself between your two best friends at the lunch table; the anticipation of finding out what your mom packed for you to eat that day?  Then, the disappointment of opening your lunchbox only to find a big, sloppy mess because the containers she used weren’t leak-proof.

Today, there are so many fantastic leak-proof options for food storage.  What’s even better news is that we offer a wide selection of leak-proof products that are also non-toxic and environmentally friendly.  From water bottles to storage containers, these items are guaranteed to keep food fresh and keep disappointment out of the lunchroom.  All products are BPA-free, PVC-free, Lead-free and phthalate free.


  • Small Stainless Steel Round Containers:  Applesauce, yogurt and juicy watermellon bites will all stay put inside one of these leak-proof, 5 oz. containers by Kids Konserve.  Made with 304 grade stainless steel and non-toxic LDPE #4 plastic, these containers are dishwasher safe and the perfect size for any lunchbox.  Available in magenta and brown. ($15.95)
  • If you like the small round containers by Kids Konserve, but want a variety of sizes, the Nesting Trio is the perfect solution.  Each set comes with a 5 oz., 8 oz. and 16 oz. container and there are three different color schemes to choose from.  Made with all of the same non-toxic and environmentally friendly materials, there is a size that's just right for the smallest to the largest of appetites. ($26.95)
  • New to our leak-prook lunch lineup is a 15 oz. stainless steel Bento.  With a four hinge locking lid, this container is tough enough to keep pasta, sandwiches and salads secure, yet easy enough for little hands to open.  ($15.95)
  • Stainless Steel Thermos:  Think a thermos is just for hot chocolate and soup?  Not anymore!  Take a break from a sandwich every once in a while and fill this thermos (shown above) with a rice or pasta dish.  ($19.95)
  • The 10 oz. Foogo Leakproof Straw Bottle, by Thermos, is the ideal water bottle for young children.  With just the press of a button, the lid pops up to reveal a spill proof straw.  No tipping necessary!  ($16.50)
  • Your older child will want to stay hydrated when you send them off to school with an 18 oz. waterbottle from Thermos + Threadless. ($13.95)
