Back to school: Non-plastic lunch box supplies

So, it's August. When did that happen? This summer is absolutely flying by and it's already time to start thinking about back to school season! 

I have to admit that I am super excited about fall! For our family, it means a lot of big, fun changes! We're in the process of moving and finishing up work on our house. Hopefully, we should have an extension with a large, wheelchair friendly shower - the last big project we have left. Also, baby #2 will be arriving towards the end of fall, and we could not be more excited! Plus, I get to spend the next few months, picking out decorations and finalising the bedroom. 

On top of all of that, Y is turning 4 in September! I cannot believe how quickly he is growing up, and feel so blessed to be his mom. He was born on my birthday, and I am really looking forward to celebrating our birthdays in our home for the first time! 

This year, Y is actually going to be attending public school here in the Netherlands. I'll be explaining more about this is a separate post. For now, I want to share our picks for our favourite school lunch supplies! 

Especially when it comes to the items we use for food prep and food consumption, I'm actually a bit picky. I try to avoid plastics and do like to go for items made from stainless steel, bamboo, or cloth. I've been having a lot of fun picking out his school lunch supplies! Here are our picks for school lunch supplies!
