Back to school season is here and that means it’s time to start thinking about innovative lunches and practical ways to transport food! My toddler is just like her mommy- she’s a little uncoordinated and can be clumsy, so I have to make sure that anything I pack for her is easy to use and spill proof. A regular plastic water bottle just isn’t an option because she will most likely spill her water, plus it leads to a lot of waste each year. Did you know that a school aged child generates about 67 pounds of waste per year? I’m generally do not buy purified water because the NYC drinking water is pretty good, plus we purify water ourselves and I just don’t like the amount of waste plastic bottles produce.
Contigo has a great way for children (and adults) to transport drinks in a spill proof container. The Contigo Kids Trekker with Autoseal technology is leak proof and spill proof, making it easy to bring with you on the go. The easy-to-push latch to release water amakes it simple enough for children to use. Even better, the Contigo Kids Trekker is made from FDA approved, BPA free materials.
