“Muck” Free Lunch Gear
With Joey starting all day Kindergarten this year, one of my big worries is lunch. He is a pain in the butt very particular about his food. He likes his hot food hot, and his cold food cold. There’s no way to do that with the old brown paper bag, besides it seems to wasteful. I needed another solution. When I ordered Jake’s backpack, we received a lunch bag free. Problem solved? Not even close. The bag was small, didn’t appear at all thermal, and smelled funny (chemically). The last thing I want after meticulously checking toys for lead and other harmful chemicals through the recall list with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) was to then have chemicals leaching into his PB & J from his lunch bag!
Then we found our solution, Citizenpip Lunch Gear! It’s described as “muck free” meaning it contains no lead, no BPA’s and no phthalates, and it’s reusable. We ordered the starter kit and Joey picked out the “Skull” style thermal bag. They also offered the same kit, which in addition to the thermal bag also includes a stainless steel water bottle and four airtight leak proof containers, in several other patterns like polka dots, sports, and patchwork styles.
Our kit arrived quickly and Joey was really excited to have his first “big kid” lunch bag to take to school. I was happy to have a chemical free, reusable solution for his lunches. The bag is much larger than the one I had received earlier, it fits the stainless steel water bottle (which he thought was awesome by the way), a large plastic container for his sandwiches, and three smaller ones for snacks. We’ve given the bag and containers a test run (for both our sakes) and Mom and Joey couldn’t be happier with the Citizenpip Starter Kit.
As I mentioned before, Joey is a pain in my rear particular and doesn’t like his sandwich smushy or crunchy (what happens when he lets the bread sit out and doesn’t eat right away). The large container was perfect for keeping the sandwich fresh and protected it from becoming crushed or smushy. The smaller containers were just as airtight and held applesauce without leaking as well as some crackers without crushing or spilling everywhere. The water bottle holds 16oz, has an easy to use “sports top” and the opening was wide enough to fit ice cubes keeping the drink and bag cold.
As I now become a mother of a school age child, I am finding there are even more things to worry about. For me, Joey’s lunch at school will not be one of them. Visit Citizenpip‘s website, find them on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter for a variety of products like insulated food containers, utensils, more airtight containers and more for you or your child to enjoy a “muck-free” lunch! It’s one less thing to worry about!
