Top of the Class – Lunch Box Essentials, School Bags and More

Published on 22nd August 2017

Get your child ready for back-to-school with the coolest and most practical must-haves, school bags and lunch box essentials for this year. From fun emojis and cool characters to their favourite cartoons and more, get ready to discover your child’s back-to-school essentials!

Making up a lunch box everyday means it can hard to come up new ideas that are still full of goodness and nutrition. Health guidelines say we should include a starchy food like bread or pasta with some protein, dairy and those all important vegetables or fruit when packing lunch for children.

Jazz up their lunch with some cookie cutters you have lying around the kitchen to make their sandwiches into fun shapes or use wraps to make mini roll-ups filled with ham, cucumber and cream cheese.

Store bananas and make sure their favourite fruit doesn’t get squished by lunchtime with handy little cases from Dunnes Stores and swap fizzy drinks or fruit juice for water with cool reusable sports bottles from Claire’s.

Every child will love a fun lunch bag from Argos featuring their favourite minions or Paw Patrol characters! These bags are perfect for storing different types of food and snacks, from pasta salads to a small thermos of hearty soup.

Pick up the most stylish little school bags for on-trend children with a trip to Eason or EuroGiant. Every child will love heading off to school on their first day with a fun emoji bag or cool dinosaur printed bag. Opt for something more sporty with Elverys Intersport with buy 1, get 1 half price now on until September 10th!

We’re loving the cool batman sets with matching umbrellas from Argos, a great choice for those wet September days and keeping little heads dry.
