I have a long list of PVC-free lunchboxes from CHEJ but not sure if any of them will work for what I am looking for. DS just started kindergarten and our previous food system will not work so I need to get something new.
First, he has to keep his morning snack separate from his lunch. So far I've given him a yogurt cup and fruit. Is there any small insulated PVC and BPA free bag where I can put a banana separate from the insulated part?
For his lunch, I need something smaller than what I have now that is also insulated and PVC and BPA free. The tough part is that I also send one Thermos Funtainer jar full of hot veggie, so that needs to be kept separate from the cold food. I've looked at lunchboxes at Target and online and so far none have a large enough pocket to fit the Funtainer in. I even skimmed through the Thermos site. The kids' lunch boxes are all put in a tote in the kindergarten room and then sent to the lunchroom. Then on the way in the lunchroom the kids pick up their food to eat. That is why I would like to have something where I can attach the Thermos hot jar so it doesn't get taken/lost.
Also, what is the best thing to do for dirty silverware? I tried putting a paper towel in there for him to wrap the dirty spoon in, but being a kindergartner that isn't working very well. I don't want to have to keep using disposable plastic baggies. Something easy to rinse that would be dry by the next morning would be nice. My thought is those reusable sandwich bags, but when I had bought one a couple years ago I found out the lining was possibly made out of some kind of chemical so I'm not sure about those unless you know of a safe one.
Sorry I wasn't sure where to post this.
