Cool Lunches

Howards Quality Essentials

We asked what you look for in a lunch box and drink bottle. The resounding response is a product that is good quality, food safe, leak proof, practical and looks good.

Howards have listened, and we are confident we have something to suit everyone, from the littlies and teens going back to school, to the big kids heading back to work!

Jules Ozolins

“At the Start of every school year, I get excited to launch an array of new products to market, and this year is no different.

We have a wonderful selection of co-ordinated lunch sets from primary school age right through to high school and adult. All our containers are BPA free, drink bottles are leak-proof and cooler bags are insulated, so you can feel comfortable knowing that you’ve purchased a quality product that will stand the test of time.”

Jules Smith – Category Manager

We asked Jules:

When it comes to “Back to School” lunch boxes and containers it’s important to get the kids involved but what features should parents be looking out for?

“An absolute must parents should look for is, is it leak-proof? Children are more often than not pretty rough with their school bags so food and drink needs to be kept secure. It is not pleasant when food or drink is spilt all through the school bag!! If buying plastic, make sure it is made from food safe plastic and if you intend to use it in the microwave, ensure first it is microwave safe. All of Howards Back to School range is food safe and BPA free.”

What makes the ideal drink bottle?

 One that does not leak! All Howards drink bottles are leak-proof. A wide opening for refilling and ease of cleaning is beneficial. An ideal drink bottle is also easy for kids to open and close.”

Is one lunch box enough?

These days most kids take an assortment of food for morning tea and lunch so often more than one container is required. We have a number of lunch boxes, which have separate compartments for taking sandwiches, fruit and veggies to school.”

How important is an insulated bag?

An insulated bag is extremely important. Food will perish quickly in hot conditions so an insulated bag is a must. Howards have insulated bags, which will stay cool from 4 hours up to 10 hours!”
