Kids throw stuff around, inevitably it sometimes breaks! Stainless-steel lunchboxes though are tougher and more durable than plastic ones, that’s why they are perfect for active kids! Good news for parents as this means you won’t have to replace your children’s lunchboxes every term!

Stainless steel is a dream to clean! Even if your child does leave their half-eaten lunch at the bottom of their school bag all weekend a stainless steel lunchbox will still come up sparkling clean and ready for Monday morning. What’s more unlike plastic alternatives which degrade over time, damaged by hot water, cleaning products, and general wear and tear stainless steel lasts.
