Fresh ways to pack a lunch

The packed lunch: it can be the highlight of your afternoon or a moment of dread. Aim for the former with a cool presentation that elevates any meal.

1. Organised for kiddos

Children can be such picky eaters. A carrot touches a kiwi and the next thing you know, lunch is inedible. Solution? Keep everything divided and neat with silicon muffin cups. Bonus: they’re also easy to clean.

2. Low key lunch that won’t embarrass your teens

Their days of toting around a lunch box are gone. Give teens a more discrete option with travel containers that stack neatly into their backpack. They can even give them a unique twist with graphic stickers.

3. The casually cool work lunch

Forget the vending machine sandwich or bland delivery salad. Pack a simple lunch in refined glass containers and wrap it all up in a beautiful tea towel that doubles as a placemat.
