Lunch Boxes for New Moms

What better place to spend your time during these hot summer days than at the zoo? When I was little and would go with my Mama, the best part of the day was sitting down to a pre-packed lunch while the tigers and monkeys looked on. But our options were limited at the time because of easily torn paper bags. It’s a common fate all of our lunches were subjected to, until we learned about the lunch box options offered by Mighty Nest! Learn from my mistake and get the best, so that your lunch is as fresh as if it had just left the kitchen.

Not enough space, you say? Upgrade and go with the Pink Giraffe Double Decker lunch bag by Wildkin. A dual-level style allows for easy storage of hot and cold foods, or separation of snacks from the “main event.” The lower level also includes a microwave-safe container, allowing you to do away with the sandwiches of yester-year and really spice things up with a casserole or some of that homemade spaghetti. The best part about the Double Decker is that not only does it get a makeover on the inside, but the outside as well! Go with Wildkin and switch out beige for a complete pink-giraffe print design.
