Kizzy has a packed lunch at school most days and we have used various lunch boxes, bags and tins to try to make sure that she doesn't end up with soggy sandwiches, bruised bananas or yucky yogurt leaks. Some methods have been more successful than others. When I received a sample of Sistema to try out, Kizzy was delighted as two of her best friends have the exact same box and everyone thinks they are really cool!
Sistema’s uniquely designed boxes from New Zealand use leading edge technology to ensure that children’s food stays fresh for longer. Each lunch box has a rubberised seal making sure nothing can escape and the separate compartments in each box mean you don’t have to worry about the food getting mixed up and squashe against each other.
The lunch boxes come in a bright fun colours aqua, pink and lime green making it more fun for the kids. They are also freezer, dishwasher and microwave safe, making them practical for parents too. All Sistema products are BPA free and made from lead free materials.
Kizzy's usual lunch fitted in perfectly into the compartments keeping everything safe and undamaged. The drink bottle is a great idea and will save us a fortune in buying cartons of juice. Due to the box having separate sections, you couldn't fit in a whole large piece of fruit, but funsize fruit, grapes, sliced cucumber, carrot sticks or halved kiwi fruits are fine. As each section has a rubberized seal, things can be placed directly into a compartment without worrying about them falling out or needing to be bagged up first. Food stays fresher for longer too. The hard outer means that the food is protected against being squashed by school books or PE trainers inside Kizzy's school bag!
I like that it is easy to clean. I hate cleaning the soft lunchboxes and bags, they get so mucky and mouldy in the hard to reach places. Sistema boxes can be immersed in hot, soapy water or put in the dishwasher. Far more hygienic!
Not having a handle might make it more difficult for a younger child to manage, but to combat this, one of Kizzy's friends puts her Sistema box into an old zip up lunchbag. This way it is easy to carry but all the lunch things are safely compartmentalized inside.
