older kids

check out our top tips for getting older kids ready for school


Older kids might worry that a packed lunch isn't cool - but they still need a filling and nutritious lunch! Maybe the time has finally come for them to pack their own lunch – LET THEM! Stock the fridge with filling foods and rest easy knowing their lunch box can hold all they need for a full day of food.

The Bento Three+ is our largest Lunch Box option, and comes with removable dividers to create extra compartments, making packing lunch easier and quicker.

13 GOING ON 30

It’s no secret teenagers love to sleep in. For mornings when they’re pushing it for time, whip them up a quick smoothie for breakfast and they can take it on the go in one of our Original Smoothie Cups. HOT TIP: Be the ultimate cool mum and make them their own iced coffee (or mocha, or decaf!)


Often as kids get older they shy away from prints and colours that may seem young or babyish. We’ve got you covered with some more mature prints like Aurora and Nova, or Midnight for a plain colour. For a more grown up style Lunch Bag check out our Insulated Cooler Bags!

no lunchbox, no worries

As they get older some kids will grow out of wanting a lunch box and will prefer to just grab food straight from their lunch bag. Luckily, you don’t have to use a lunchbox inside our bags - you don’t even have to use the ice pack with the bag if their food isn’t perishable!

Our Insulated Food Jars are another great alternative - perfect for packing leftovers like pasta or noodles -they'll even keep hot foods warm until lunch time!

Stay Hydrated

Our 700ml Drink Bottles are a great choice for keeping your kids water cool throughout the school day. If you have pretty active kids who might be doing after school or before school training we recommend upgrading them to our 1 Litre Bottle to keep them hydrated all day!


Older kids love any chance to show off their individual style, especially when they have to wear a uniform. Our drink bottle accessories are a great way to let them customise their bottle to suit their (ever changing!) mood.
