Lock and Lock Lunch Bag Sets are ideal as lunch boxes for kids lunches, to take to work, out on the job site, day trips in the car or on picnics. The Lunch Bags are thermal lined with silver foil and can be used to keep food warm OR cool.
All containers fit neatly in to the thermal lined bag and is of sturdy construction with a zip closure and a carry handle.
Note: the inner lining of the lunch bag contains PVC, and as such, we do not consider it food safe. The lunch bag comes with three bpa free food safe food containers that fill the entire bag, so there is no need for food to ever come in to direct contact with these lunch bags.

Why BPA free?
Numerous reports can be found on TV, in health magazines & on the internet about the dangers of BPA (BIsphenol A) in plastic storage bottles & containers. These reports indicate very real negative affects on animals (and in particular mice) during testing.
Traces of BPA in food & water could lead to the disruption of the developmental process, affect intelligence, affect a childs behaviour, affect learning abilities and in teens & adults, affect the reproductive system and fertility.
Whether this is all true or just a 'media beat up', is it really worth drinking out of plastic bottles & eating out of plastic containers that could be leaching BPA in to your water and food? Besides, these containers & bottles are excellent quality and will last you for year, long after the cheap stuff you buy from the supermarket is clogging up landfill.
We have a kitchen full of Lock & Lock containers and drink bottles. Our consulting naturopath also recommends the use of BPA free water bottles and plastic containers and has a box of these in her clinic to sell to patients she loves them so much!
While these products are microwave safe, our consulting naturopath does not recommend the use of microwave ovens. In an emergency, she recommends the use of microwave safe glass containers.
