Beyond Bank  is getting serious about reducing its waste and we’ve come up with 5 tips to help you pack a quick and waste free lunch box for the kids…
- Same, Same!
Determine what your child likes most in their lunch box & stick to that same winning formula each day. For example: Piece of fruit, sandwich or wrap, piece of cake, crackers & yoghurt
- Buy big packs
It’s cheaper and uses less waste to buy a large pack of tiny teddies, cheese or crackers and store in containers than it is to buy individually wrapped portions
- Ditch the pouches!
Pouch yoghurts and fruit are full of sugar and head straight to landfill. Place Greek yoghurt in a small container and flavour with maple syrup or jam – YUM!
- Dinner for lunch?
Consider making chicken schnitzel and burgers one night each week and make extra for school lunches the next day. Use a compartment container – one side for the meat and the other for the sauce!
- Right Tools
Supermarkets have a range of functional storage solutions that can be used in lunch boxes. Sandwich bags, fruit holders & aluminium compartment containers are useful ways to keep food fresh and reduce waste.
