Kicking off my Back to School series with my first giveaway!
These days I am always on the look-out for fun new lunch ideas. You can only pack so many sandwiches! However, I have to ensure the products I choose for my children are safe and free of toxins.
I came across a fabulous company which shares my passion for keeping our kids safe. The Soft Landing offers over 45 brands of 100% BPA, PVC and Phthalate-free products. I was thrilled to learn about all the toxin-free, waste-free lunch solutions they offer. They have one of the biggest selections I have seen thus far! We decided to try out a couple of their products.
We came across the Thermos Funtainer line and I knew this would be perfect for my son. They have both a Beverage Bottle and Food Jar in a cool blue camo design. They are designed with kids in mind. They are made from unbreakable stainless steel without BPA, PVC or phthalates.
The Food Jar is supposed to keep food hot for five hours and cold for seven hours. The Beverage Bottle is supposed to keep drinks cold for twelve hours. I decided to conduct my own test. I typically pack my kids' lunch around 7:00 AM. They eat lunch around 11:30. So, to pass my test, it had to be able to keep food warm for at least 4 1/2 hours.
In the morning, I filled up the Beverage Bottle with ice water and the Food Jar with hot soup. I checked on them both after three hours. The water was nice and cold and the soup was still very hot. After five hours, the soup was at the perfect temperature for eating and the water was still cold. I was pretty impressed when I checked the water at the end of the day and found it still refreshingly chilled. Test successfully passed!
I have to say I am sold! I think both the Thermos Funtainer Beverage Bottle and Food Jar will be regular additions to my son's lunch. Not to mention he thinks the blue camo design is pretty cool!
I am so excited that my new friends at The Soft Landing
are giving me the opportunity to giveaway both the Thermos Funtainer Beverage Bottle and Food Jar to one of my lucky readers!
Be sure to check out The Soft Landing
