Most of us are nearly two weeks into the new school year now, so your child has probably decided whether they love or hate school meals/absolutely have to have a packed lunch every day. We’ve teamed up with Smiggle and Pulsin to make your packed lunch prep that little bit easier, healthier and more colourful – we’re giving away a stash of Pulsin Fruity Oat Bars along with a Smiggle Hardtop City Lunch Box and Drink Up Bottle in the design of your choice – subject to availability, of course.
I’ve yet to meet a child who doesn’t love Smiggle. Described as where a smile meets a giggle, the Australian emporium is a riot of colour and pattern and full of fabulous pocket money buys. My two are obsessed – I’ve just bought them the advent calendar – so Kitty was thrilled when she was sent a City Hardtop Lunch Box and Drink Up Bottle to test. The lunch box has two big storage compartments with a food-safe, BPA-free lining. I love that it has a name and address label and a handy shoulder strap (which might mean she carries it herself), while she loves the scented embossed butterfly motif and the general cheery sparkliness. The coordinating water bottle has a flip-top spout and, unlike, many, many other drinks bottles we’ve tried, doesn’t leak!
It’s always a bit of a struggle to find healthy snacks that the children will actually eat. Step up Pulsin with their range of Fruity Oat Bars in three flavours. I’ve been a fan of Pulsin’s gluten-free brownies for a while, so I was interested to see what the bars were like (and whether Alfie and Kitty would like them). We were sent a pack of each flavour – Strawberry, Blackcurrant & Apple and Orange Choc Chip – and they’ve all been declared ‘delicious’ and wolfed down by both of them. I sneakily had an Orange Choc Chip when I needed a sweet fix the other day and it was yummy. Fruity Oat Bars are made with real fruit and natural ingredients and are gluten, dairy, nut and soya free – they only contain natural sugars, and make up one of your five-a- day, so they’re guilt free as well.
One reader can win a Hardtop City Lunch Box and City Drink up Bottle in the design of their choice (subject to availability), plus seven boxes of Pulsin Fruity Oat Bars (each box contains five bars). All you need to do to enter is use the clever widget below. Good luck!
