School time is an important and big part of our lives. Our constant companion in this chapter is the lunch box. In this guide we want to tell you how the full potential of the lunch boxes is used. This gives you more time to focus on the important things. We also deal with the aspects of health, environment and sustainability.
The perfect lunch box for children
What vitamins do children need?
Raising environmental awareness
The environmental and climate protection is a hot topic and will have a significant impact on the future of generations that are currently still children or adolescents. Despite this, they often still do not understand the importance of protecting the environment and how their actions directly or indirectly affect things like the climate.
The topic is often neglected in schools and daycare centers, so it is up to the parents to promote environmental awareness in the children and to educate them to be people who not only understand the topic, but also take responsibility take action and act actively to protect the environment and climate
The child should be explained in detail why plastic is so harmful to health and the environment and why lunch boxes made of stainless steel are definitely the better choice.
Order is half of school life
Well structured students benefit demonstrably from a better overview and stress-free, time-saving work, since everything is in its place. This is where our bento box made of stainless steel can shine. Especially in direct comparison to conventional lunch boxes made of plastic, you are safe from leaking and escaping odors.
The interchangeable dividers allow the food to be neatly separated for different occasions. So everything fits compactly in a Bento Box. This can also be easily stored away in the school bag to save space.
Healthy meals, for smart people
Of course, eating right won't boost your IQ overnight, but making the right food choices can affect brain activity. Food for the brain supports your ability to think, thinking and memory.
There are foods that contain ingredients to support brain activity. For example, for the formation and regulation of messenger substances and hormones.
Although the brain accounts for only a few percent of body weight, it is responsible for a large part of the energy consumption. Your diet plan can therefore lead to you being able to concentrate better and getting tired and stressed less quickly.
Your brain uses energy in the form of sugar and fat, but these should not be made available to your brain in the form of sweets and fast food. Although these very sugary, small sins cause the energy level to rise sharply in the short term - in the end they lead to an immense drop in energy.
Saturated fatty acids from greasy prepared meals and finished products also have a bad effect on mental performance. Especially in direct comparison to omega-3 fatty acids, they inhibit brain performance.
We need a lot of energy for mental exertion. So in order to avoid losing our concentration and the resulting mistakes, we have to ensure that our brain is constantly supplied with sufficient energy.
For longer periods of mental work, it is important to provide the body with an even supply of energy. Complex carbohydrates provide, for example,
- Whole grain products
- and legumes
Polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 fatty acids are also optimal fuel for the gray matter, for example
- rapeseed oil
- Linseed oil
- Walnut oil
- and fatty fish
Proteins are primarily essential for the flow of information.are particularly rich in it
- Fish and seafood
- lean meat
- Nuts and seeds
Tips and Lifehacks
Prepare your food. Plan ahead to pre-cook your food for a day or two. So you can freeze excess food directly and thaw it again if necessary, for example before school starts.
Perishable foods such as raw fish or homemade mayonnaise should be avoided, as the box is often left unrefrigerated for a few hours. When preparing the lunch box, you should work with clean hands to avoid germs getting into the food.
If put together correctly, the contents of a bento box are complete. This means the food doesn't move too much during transport.
Freshly prepared dishes with natural ingredients are always the best choice. It is important that you let the food cool down before you put it in the lunch box, because warm food gives off condensation. This will make the contents watery. In summer, this is also unfavorable for hygiene. Quite apart from that, watered down food usually doesn't taste very tasty.
We hope we were able to help you with the selection of the boxes. Our youngest children are particularly shaped during their school years for later life.
