When you become a parent, you develop a bit of a tupperware habit. I’ve also realised this week that I am definitely a grown up as I have a tendancy to decant dry goods into pretty jars or plastic containers – herbs and spices, gravy granules (yes I cheat) and even baby formula.
Ready for back to school, we’ve been putting Sistema sandwich boxes and drinks bottles to the test.
As soon as we unpacked the boxes, our four year old (Bear) insisted we add name labels and sit down for a packed lunch. So we did. First, we packed up the Slimline Quaddie which has lots of compartments – a big section underneath ideal for sandwiches and a banana, and three smaller compartments on the top. One contains a small square drinks bottle. Daddy has one of these lunchboxes for work, and uses the bottle for sauce for his pasta, stir fry or salad, so Bear insisted on having ketchup in his.
We added cucumber, a satsuma, crisps and a strawberry whoopie pie to the other sections – and then we ate.
We also put the Squeeze Bottle to the test which is simple, slimline and has an easy twist opening and can be squeezed as the name suggests. It does what it says on the tin really. And importantly, it doesn’t leak.
Finally, we tried out the Lunch Cube, which again has great compartments and is ideal for kids lunches or adults. With a sandwich section in the bottom and two compartments in the top, it fits everything in neatly.
Having sections in lunch boxes means you can cut down on waste – there’s less need for foil or film because everything is kept in its place.
Age four also seems to be a particularly picky and fussy age – our son seems to be as fussy about the contents of his lunch box as he does about the box itself. These were a hit so we’re happy!

We were sent these Sistema products to review. I stick to the bloggers with integrity code to post honest and open reviews.
