Lunchtime Fun With Thermos Brand FUNtainers

It's that time of year again, Back To School shopping has begun.  Most parents are breathing a sigh of relief, however I always have mixed emotions about school starting up.

One of the big things with back to school is lunches. Unless your school offers a hot lunch program, you need to pack daily lunches and snacks.  Why not make it fun for the kids with Thermos Brand FUNtainers?  They have products geared at different ages and you can find some of your favourite characters now on the FUNtainers!

Our school likes to have litter-less lunches sent in with the kids, and we need a gazillion containers to make this happen.  It's nice to have an assortment to choose from, and really nice to know that when the kids take dinner leftovers for lunch, that their food will still be warm (and safe to eat) by the time lunch comes around with FUNtainers food jars.

Before placing in hot food, you do need to prep the jar a bit.  Run the tap water on hot and fill the jar, place the lid back on for 1-2 minutes and then empty out the water and replace it with your heated up food.  Secure the lid again and then you are good to go for a few hours (5 hours for hot food - you can do the same for cold food, just use cold water and food should be good for 7 hours) until lunch time!

The school is also a plastic water bottle free zone, meaning that they need to have a reusable, leak proof bottle to drink from.  The FUNtainers bottles will keep your drinks cold for 12 hours!

My kids are super excited to head back to school with the Minion and Batman FUNtainers that we were sent to try out. There are other great character options, and also fun coloured options if you want something a little more versatile!

Tales of Mommyhood received 2 sets of FUNtainers in exchange for this review.  All opinions are honest and belong to Tales of Mommyhood.  Your opinion/experience may vary.
