How child friendly is your pantry? In this Elfa pantry, we created a “self serve” zone to empower kids to pick and pack their own lunches and serve themselves breakfast.
What makes a kitchen great is how you organise it, especially when it comes to catering for kids. An easy to access child friendly zone at the base of your pantry solution for healthy snacks will save you time, reduce waste and empower the little folk in your life to become self-sufficient when their stomachs start to rumble! More than just an accessible snack stop, by storing high access breakfast items alongside school essentials in one handy spot, you’ll encourage independence during the before school rush and when packing lunches. Hardwearing, versatile, customisable and complete with a 10-year guarantee, this elfa® Custom Panty solution coupled with a number of clever storers, ticks all the boxes.
Empower your kids and encourage independance
Stock your pantry in organised zones to create a simple system the whole family can use. High access items should be positioned front and centre; while an accessible snack zone will ensure the kids aren’t rifling through the rest of the pantry searching for food.
✓ Visibility and accessibility is key
✓ Create equal access (for kids and adults alike) to commonly used items
✓ Within the space create a zone specifically for the kids.
An efficient set up is all about access and speed, and if there is one thing that takes up time in the morning it’s the breakfast/packing school lunch routine.
Create a pick and pack pantry zone at child height giving the kids direct access to their breakfast essentials,drink bottles, lunch bags and food for packed lunches.
Encourage their independence at breakfast time
Enable the kids to pack at least part of their own school lunch
Save you precious time each morninng
An organised pantry system will save you and your family time, will reduce waste and what’s more if the kids can see and access something they’re after, they’re less likely to ask you to get it!
Keep food easy to reach, visable and fresh for longer by using a range of airtight storers.
